I believe that the FBI and the Police should have access to the deep web because a lot of evidence of criminal activity is on the deep web. This is especially the case because criminals don't want to get caught all because they posted a video on the internet that can easily be accessed by anybody. Usually, The deep web cannot be accessed unless you use Tor or some secret place on the web.

The police can access the deep web if they want to with undercover cops and information as such. The point of the deep web is for any providers, Browsers, Or companies to not track or gain or keep any information of their user, Which is a great start for privacy. The reason why it is so hard for these people to track down deep web users, Is the amount of protection and walls they have against their posts, Making it really hard to find or track the users without any exact evidence.

TLDR; popo has access, No point in going there if it is too hard to track criminals.

But still, Some criminals can't be caught unless you look on the deep web. Kidnappers are one of them, Maybe someone is kidnapped to a place far away and chained somewhere. The mother of the victim would not automatically know where her daughter or son went or what happened. But maybe the deep web would help because it might give a hint as to where the daughter or son is taken. Also if their's multiple people that could be to blame for the problem, The deep web is sometimes necessary to decide which one is the real criminal.

You have ignored the fact that I explained on how the police does have access to the deep web, But it is really hard, To borderline impossible to actually catch these guys.

The police are human being like you and I. It is not hard for me to right now, Install TOR, Code up some firewalls and other privacy VPNS, And surf the dark web for cocaine. It is common sense. If someone got kidnapped to a place, The first thing would not be to look on the dark web, It would to actually search for this person in real life, Look for ACTUAL evidence during the scene of the crime, And to investigate as hard as they can.

Also do you know how hard it is to actually find for things on the deep web? It makes up 96% of the internet's content. While 4% is what you and I are using, The surface web on Google, Yahoo, Bing, Whatever.

Not all of the deep web is illegal however, That does not make this situation any better although, There would be so much protection against posts, And so many anonymous, Blocked IP addresses, And tracking lead to dead ends, That there would be almost no point.

One of the most successful ways the FBI gets this guys is through undercover, You can research what that is if you are clueless of it's existence.

Not sure if this was mentioned in the debate, Forgive me if it was. I would just like to point out that there have been cases of the FBI seizing websites on the dark web, I. E. Pedo sites and other sites of the sort.
