Student under investigation for child porn
Typical stupidity over a stupid video. It's just a freaking video. Law enforcement should stay out of it. Laws need to be amended so that they do not apply to this kind of harmless horseplay! Just think of the hours of police time being wasted on this when they could be dealing with real crime!

mrgreen: Dealing with real crime is dangerous. Someone could get hurt. Law enforcement prefers the kind of investigation that even a pussy could do without any risk. Face it, we're a nation of pussies and the most pussified of all go into law enforcement so they can insert themselves into the lives of others. It's a total scam and a pathetic joke.

Teen commits suicide after being questioned about sexual encounter
School authorities and legal authorities need to handle these situations in a more intelligent and humane manner. The crime they are dealing with is so trivial and yet they turn it into a major issue. How is a young person to make sense of such an overreaction? It is the epitome of stupid and the cognitive dissonance caused by this type of an encounter can have tragic consequences as it did in this case.

Sometimes the ACLU does something right. In the case of a 14-year-old girl from Minnesota who sent a couple naked selfies to a couple boys, the ACLU is defending her and criticizing the state for forcing her to register as a sex offender. The ACLU says that the law should protect young people, rather than penalize them. In addition to the possibility of registration as a sex offender, the girl also faces a possible 7 years in prison and a ten thousand dollar fine!

We're a nation of incredibly immature morons. Images and video containing nudity and sex should not be such a trigger. Normal people don't really care about that sort of thing. Only people raised in a continuous atmosphere of moral panic think the way most Americans do. Decriminalize every aspect of this kind of thing and protect those who have pics and vids floating around of them in the nude or doing something sexual against discrimination. It's almost the opposite of what we're currently doing, but it's the mature and sensible thing to do.

CactusHugger: Interesting point. If employers CAN'T fire someone over this sort of thing, then no one could say that the company's image is affected since it would not be a choice that the employee is retained. Similarly if company's cannot consider ANY of this sort of thing when hiring there would be no need for prying into a job candidate's online personal business. Actually your suggestion is brilliant now that I think about it.
