Danish police accidentally blocks 8000 internet sites including Google and Facebook

by RT News

Imagine logging on to Facebook only to find it had been shut down for offering child pornography? Visitors to some 8,000 websites in Denmark faced just that, when a “human error” by Danish police labeled most of the internet a sexual predator.


With the Internet under attack by a string of abbreviations ranging from ACTA to SOPA, avid web surfers have been a bit jumpy as of late.

In these troubled times, imagine the shock many Danish users of the Siminn internet service provider (ISP) received when a casual workday visit to Google or Facebook left this message ominously glowing on the screen:

“The National High Tech Crime Center of the Danish National Police [NITEC], who assist in investigations into crime on the Internet, has informed Siminn Denmark A/S, that the Internet page which your browser has tried to contact may contain material which could be regarded as child pornography.”

For several hours Thursday, that message appeared on the screens of 8,000 different websites, virtually bringing down large swaths of the Internet across the country. 

How did it all happen?

According to NITEC chief Johnny Lundberg, it didn’t take much.

The whole fiasco apparently began when an employee at the police center switched seats with his colleague.

With a few misguided mouse clicks, police were able to blacklist 8,000 websites instantly.

While Lundberg apologized and claimed that blocking sites in the future would require two people instead of one, the question remains:  should authorities have the power to take down the Internet in the blink of an eye?

Is Denmark’s Dagmar Overbye one of the worst serial killers in world’s history?

Well, the answer is simply ‘we don’t know’.

In Denmark everything that can be covered up, will be covered up, and everything that can be denied will be denied, which means victim count in this case can be anywhere between 9 – ca 200.

However , she is one of most notorious female serial killers not only in Denmark but in world’s history. She is also one of the most merciless, because all her victims were infants. 

Dagmar Overbye committed her crimes during a seven-year period from 1913 to 1920. Apparently she confessed ca 20 murders, but was eventually convicted of 9.

She ran some sort of babyfarm’ or ‘unofficial’ adoption agency in Denmark. According to some reports she was a ‘foster mother’ to children born outside of marriage which seems to be far from truth. Babies ‘in her care’ were killed by strangulation or drowning, some were burnt to death in her masonry heater. The corpses were either cremated, buried or hidden in the loft.

She was sentenced to death in 1921,  however he sentence was later commuted to life in prison. She died in prison at the age of 42.

The motive of the killings is not clear. She likely received money from parents who gave up their babies for adoptions or simply wanted to get rid of them. Babies born out of wedlock were considered shameful and unacceptable back then.

I have doubts that all parents were in dark about what is going to happen to their babies. Perhaps they wanted the woman to do the ‘dirty work’, perhaps they just didn’t care. It is also clear that the matter given the circumstances was extremely discreet, so there was no follow-up. Apparently after her arrest, as many as 180 children were reported missing. All disappeared from Overbye’s ‘baby farm’.  It is possible that parents reported their babies missing because they feared their own deeds may be exposed. However she was eventually arrested, after alarm was raised by someone concerned about missing child.

The case likely involves cover-up from authorities, the extent of the horrors were downplayed. However, during Overbye’s notorious trial all hell broke loose and reportedly ‘new childcare legislation’ was introduced.

There are many classifications of serial killers: Perhaps she saw herself as missionary type – her mission was to get rid of unwanted babies . To hide shame and to bury their mothers’ secrets with them. No questions asked.

Perpetrator is sometimes described as professional child caretaker – whatever that means. She took care of those unwanted babies, her own way.

The irony, apart from gruesome case, is indeed rich.
