Teens send nude pics to one other, face kiddie porn charges
Another case of this abhorrent practice of treating sexually misbehaving teens as if they were children/criminals/monsters.
Two girls from Greensburg, who police say are "14 or 15" years old, allegedly sent nude photos to two boys who are slightly older than them (16 or 17) using their cell phones. The photos were discovered in October after one of the youngsters was caught using a cell phone during school hours—a violation of school rules—and had the phone taken away. The photos were discovered at that time—I didn't know teachers could go snooping through your cell phone, either—and turned over to police.
"It was a self portrait taken of a juvenile female taking pictures of her body, nude," Greensburg Police Department captain George Seranko told WPXI News. "Taking nude pictures of yourself, nothing good can come out of it."
. . .
Though the discovery was made several months ago, the Greensburg Police Department apparently decided to arrest and charge the teenagers this week. According to the police, the two girls are being charged with manufacturing, disseminating, or possessing child pornography, while the two boys are being charged with possession of child porn.
"Nothing good can come of it," is what the police captain said. Seriously? I think tons of good things can come of it. Namely, the people sending their images could get laid. Isn't that what most teens are hoping for?
