The dark web is a platform where extreme crime of the highest degree occurs. Surfing the dark web, visitors can fall upon content ranging from ISIS execution videos, to child groomers, extremists, prostitutes, pedophiles, human traffickers, assassins for hire and snuff movies. The dark web serves as a gathering place for criminals to exchange information and help one another.
