Well the first has a school demanding kids return their yearbooks immediately due to a 'child porn' picture being in the yearbook. Those kids who don't return said yearbooks will/can be charged with having child pornography on their person.
The picture in question? Two teens in the background pic of a school dance where the 17yo child has his hands inside the clothing of his 15 yo dance partner.
Seriously now. Teens are going to grope each other. Teens are going to experiment. They are both minors, there we have a dance, darkened room, of course they're going to goof around.
And to go to the length of threatening those who don't want to turn their yearbooks in as 'owners of child porn'? REALLY? SERIOUSLY?
Priorities, 'Murika. Priorities.

Then we go to yearbook tragedy number two.
Somehow, kids were misnamed in the yearbook; 'creepy smile kid' 'isolation kid' 'someone', 'whole row is unknown', etc etc. Parents and students are appalled and the principal has no idea how this could have happened since the year book team is big and they had many proofreaders. "It was an honest mistake." He said.
Really? REALLY?

I wonder.... Is it asking so very much that school administrators be the FINAL proof read on these things? The proof of the proof and last step before publisher, perhaps? What does he mean he can't understand? It's HIS school and HIS Yearbook to be responsible for. If it's that large a disaster, HE ought to be paying replacement cost, personally, out of a negligence to do his duty for basic diligence as head of the school.

As for the first one? Wow.... Child Porn? Really??? I'd tell the school to come charge my kid .and we'll flip that to pursue them for production and distribution of child porn, since that's how they seem to want to term kids being kids and an unfortunate moment of timing to the pic being taken. Stick that in their corn cob and toke on it.

Yeah it just turns my stomach. Both accounts are horrible but the ''child porn'' one could ruin tons of kids' lives. I mean, I remember my old hs yearbooks: they had TONS of things written in them; to be forced to not just give that away but to be threatened if I didn't, I'd have child porn possession charges on me???? Or if that happened to my kid?

Some heads would be rolling for sure!

((off topic some but ''some heads would be rolling''. I wonder how long it's going to take for 'them' to outlaw that saying? "If you say that, you must be a terrorist." Kay, back to topic.))

There's just too many odd things happeneing in the school zone as of late. Makes me creeped out. I'd blame the school for that as well. THEY put it out, and then sent them out to hundreds of kids! Well if it's so bad, wear the blame yourself. Don't force young teens to possibly have a felony for life for a YEARBOOK DANCE PIC.

OK, I get your point,, but let's consider something else. Fifteen years from now the girl in the picture is applying for a scholarship, a job or what have you. In my experience, the "boys will be boys" mentality still rules, whereas the girl who let him go inside her clothes could very well have her reputation destroyed by then. If I were her parent, I'd sure be expecting better protection for her, even though she'd be grounded for life.
