San Diego Police to charge 30 teens with child porn for taking naked pictures of themselves
30 lives ruined. Who are the cops helping here? Who are they protecting?
So, in order to ‘teach’ minors not to sext naked photos to each other, they’re going to reach out and destroy some lives. NBC’s San Diego affiliate reports:
San Diego police say criminal charges will be filed in a sexting ring involving dozens of students from several high schools and one middle school.
According to investigators, it started with a dozen girls sending nude photos of themselves to their boyfriends. Then, the boyfriends passed the pictures on to their friends, creating a web of photo sharing.
“They are fully nude shots, sexually explicit of some of our high school students,” San Diego Police Lt. Chuck Kaye said.
While the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force (ICAC) is not releasing the names of the schools involved, investigators say they have identified 30 students from six high schools and one middle school they believe were involved in the sexting ring.
These pictures are considered child pornography, so imagine what might happen to whomever the police arrests. Furthermore, according to the NBC report, there’s no hacking or coercion going on here. The girls sent out the naked pics themselves.
