Protecting the children… from sex pictures

Teens aren't old enough to be exposed, didn't you know that?

Here we have another example of a law going awry.

Three Greensburg Salem students who allegedly sent nude or semi-nude photographs of themselves via their cell phones and three male students who received the photos are facing pornography charges.

Greensburg police have filed petitions with Westmoreland County juvenile authorities charging the three high school girls with manufacturing, disseminating or possessing child pornography. Three high school boys found with the photos on their cell phones are charged with possession of child pornography, police said Monday.

Police said more charges are possible because they believe the photos may have gone to others.

Look, I will be the first to say that protecting children from sexual exploitation by adults is a really good idea.

But that isn't what happened here.

The girls took the pictures and sent them to the boys.

This is the one of the very few times I can honestly call something a fuckup.
