Consider that ones conception is that "the image encurrages the crime".
Should we also ban horror movies? Should someone not be allowed to draw a picture, depicting another crime?
Then: Should we have like a special unit within the police, a board that decides "the person in THIS picture, is a child - the one in this OTHER

Films by Jerry Bruckheimer? (encurrages reckless driving)
The list can go on...
