Teen 'Sexters' Charged With Child Pornography


www.foxnews.com

This month in Greensburg, Pa., three high school girls who sent seminude photos and four male students who received them were all hit with child pornography charges. And in Newark, Ohio, a 15-year-old high school girl faced similar charges for sending her own racy cell phone photos to classmates.

Whatever the outcome, the mere fact that child pornography charges were filed at all is stirring debate among students and adults.

I say that this is pretty extreme. If they are in the wrong state, a lot of these folks will get their sex drive stuff ripped out due to new laws that they have on this stuff (I can't recall what it's called, hard to think...).

These are gonna have to register everywhere they go, and have folks out to kill them for the rest of their life. They'll be sex offenders, and punished for life.

Yeah, even though i condemn the actions these young teens have been participating it. It was consentual, and they're all under age as far as i can gather.

I can understand dealing with the problem striclty and swiftly, but the authorities don't need to ruin these kids lives by having them place on that sex offender registry list for something like this.

Some school bestowed reprocussions and a stern grounding by they're parents should have been enough.

Let's try not to witch hunt our kids when they're simply becoming sexually active, albeit at a young age, this won't be a very good starting point and could mess them up psycologically in the long run.

This law is out of hand. I think the public embarrassment alone is more than sufficient. As if we don't have enough juveniles in trouble as it is.

It happens. All the time.
It happened to someone I know and even as an adult she is unable to talk online or have any contact through email or phone with anyone under the age of 18.

It happens all the time.

Wow that is pretty insane. I cannot imagine them having to register as sex offenders. Though really this is nothing new, there was a story on here a few months back on this. In that report the same thing happened.

I also cannot believe these teens are not thinking about this a bit more. Imagine if someone you did not want to see the photos got them. “Oops sorry daddy I didn’t mean for you to get a shot of me being seminude”. Wow that might turn a few cheeks red.

Found the posting about it.

It appears this is talking about the same teens.

Here's what I don't get about this.

The following is from the same article linked in the OP.


"Hopefully we'll get the message out to these kids," says Michael McAlexander, a prosecutor in Allen County, Ind., which includes Fort Wayne. A teenage boy there is facing felony obscenity charges for allegedly sending a photo of his private parts to several female classmates. Another boy was recently charged with child pornography in a similar case.

In some cases, the photos are sent to harass other teens or to get attention. Other times, they're viewed as a high-tech way to flirt. Either way, law enforcement officials want it to stop, even if it means threatening to add "sex offender" to a juvenile's confidential record.

"We don't want to throw these kids in jail," McAlexander says. "But we want them to think."


I'm having a hard time believing what this prosecutor is saying. In particular the part about not wanting to throw the kids in jail and just wanting them to think.

There are likely several lesser charges they could have picked to throw at these kids. So why did they pick the one with harshest penalty and most damning stigma unless they really do mean to toss them in jail or ruin their lives?

This is all part of the conspiracy to eliminate freedom. It's part of a pincer attack on the people of the world. Step one is to take away the rights of criminals, and step two is to make everyone a criminal.

All they are doing is setting a precedent. Are you a sexually active teenager? Did you used to be sexually active in your teenage years? Fine, then for the rest of your life you are a convicted felon.

No voting, no gun ownership, no running for office, and for the rest of your life you're in a government database so "the man" knows where you live at all times. I'm sure in due time, the rights of "convicted felons" will be further diminished until nobody with a criminal record is a free man.

In the mean time, they'll be working hard to give everyone a criminal record.

i remember something like this being in the UK news, about primary school children being suspended/expeled for sexual assult (like touching a "bottom" as what they probably call it at that age).

Its ridicules! a 5year old doesnt even know what a sexual touch is! they probly dont even like girls at that stage.

This makes me wish I was 14 again so I could import a massive list of numbers into my cell phone book (a few thousand or more) and just text them all a pic of my junk.

Instantly a town of sex offenders.

I think everybody should do this to as many numbers possible until the entire country is just one nation of sex offenders.

I done enough Obama himself is bound to get a nice crotch shot on his Blackberry.

I would agree putting these teens on the sex offender's list is a bit over the edge, but lets look at this realistically.

Why do teens need to be sending photos of their birthday suits to one another? What is the point? And to what purpose does it serve?

Before the days of camera cell phones, there were polariod cameras with instant pictures. There never was any outbreak of teens taking pictures of themselves in the nude and passing them around in school to each other.

So why all of a sudden because there are cell phones with cameras and picture capability, that there is this need to expose themselves?

Then most of them will cry wolf about invasion of privacy!! WTF???

Demented, distorted, disturbed mentality is what I see.



Cheers!!!!
