The girl, meanwhile told investigators she never expected to see those photos made public. The suspect’s mother, who said this was a case of two kids arguing and said that it shouldn’t have made escalated into adult felony charges. She also said the girl is partly to blame for sending the nude photos in the first place.

Well— 1) the boy committed a felony because he posted the pictures. Even possessing them is a felony. 2) the girl committed a felony because she took the pictures—-which are considered child pornography—and distributed them to the boy. That is the way the law sees the matter. In our current society with its hysteria over sex, people react as if it was a contagious, always fatal disease which people must be protected from at all costs. I have a different view. It is all innocuous. Let them off with a stern warning and a demand for a different standard of… Read more »

Is there any room for parents here? So the kids blew it. Give the parents a chance to handle it and keep their families intact. If government is the answer, it was a stupid question…

Hi Avig: The “sex hysteria” has been taken too far. It’s like it’s a dirty thing these people feel they need to protect society from, and I agree that this is ludicrous. Kid’s are going to explore their sexuality the way kids explore their sexuality. In this digital age they sometimes do it the way these two did. For these kids to become sexually aware is normal, not criminal. What is criminal is the way society now goes after these kids and runs them through the wringer because they don’t have the same warped values that conceived these laws. You’ll… Read more »

Child pornography and childn abuse of any kind should be illegal, there’s no doubt about it. But, how on Earth is it that an image of an unclothed human body, of any age, is illegal??? Creating the image is illegal. Possessing the image is illegal. Seeing the image is illegal. What if she applied a filter to the image and made it look like a water color or pencil sketch? What if she took the image with Paper Camera and applied the Comic Book filter? What if she drew the image in charcoal and sent it via snail mail? In… Read more »

It’s more about money and control on the Internet. Social media generates profits by rewarding teens and younger to fervently promote products in exchange for likes (see PBS, Frontline reportable “Generation Like”), The whole system collapses if some of the players start doing things online, the corporations can’t (legally) make money off of. Therefore the offender’s lives are discarded, no matter what their ages, because they threaten the game. They are being made examples of.

I’m sorry, I just got to say it. Children are stupid. That’s why God created parents. The problem is that too many parents are lazy idiots who want society to do their job. Stop buying $500 camera phones and webcam laptops for children who don’t have the control or maturity to use them. Duh. They call them “SMART PHONES”. Ha! The phones are smarter than the user. Children used to talk on the phone all the time. The big reason for them texting all the time instead is so they can do and discuss things they know they shouldn’t in… Read more »
