Today TechCrunch.com discovered the open sale of a Kindle edition of a book which is effectively a Pedophile’s “guide”.
Incredibly, this book, which contains detailed instructions on what amounts to the sexual abuse of children, is not only available for sale on the U.S. version of the Kindle store, but the UK store as well, priced £3.48. (We are not linking for obvious reasons).
Is it possible that Amazon has such a book not only for sale, but that it has even put a price on an instruction manual of this nature? It’s basically incredible, but apparently true.
However, TechCrunch reports that Amazon in the US will not remove the book from its store and calls any such requests “censorship”.
It’s 3.15am in Europe right now, but we’re reaching out to Amazon UK and its wider European operation for comment as soon as possible on this matter.
Update, 9am: The book appears to have been removed from the catalogue.
