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? San Diego Police About to Teach Local Teens How Awful Authorities Are in Sexting Case - Hit & Run : Reason.com
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.

Undercover cop tricks autistic and special needs kids into getting him drugs, arrests them

Riverside Cop Tricks Autistic Teen into Buying Pot - Reason.com
The ordeal began on the first day of school last fall. The family had just moved to a new neighborhood and their son began his senior year at a new school, Chaparral High, in the Temecula Valley Unified School District. Their son rarely socialized, so his mom was thrilled when he announced that he had made a new friend in art class on the first day of school. "We were so excited. I told him he should ask his friend to come over for pizza and play video games," says Catherine Snodgrass, "but his new friend always had an excuse." His new friend, who went under the name of Daniel Briggs, was known as "Deputy Dan" to many students because it was so apparent to them that he was an undercover officer. However, to their son, whose disabilities make it hard for him to gauge social cues, Dan was his only real friend. Dan reportedly sent 60 text messages to their son begging for drugs. According to his parents, the pressure to buy drugs was too much for the autistic teen who began physically harming himself. The Snodgrass' son finally agreed to buy Dan the pot. Dan give him twenty dollars and it took him three weeks to buy a half joint of pot off a homeless man downtown. This happened twice. When Dan asked a third time, their son refused and Dan cut off all communication. "Our son was pretty broken up about that and he was back to having zero friends," says Doug Snodgrass. . . .

South Carolina Judge says it's okay to murder bystanders as long as you were trying to shoot someone else

South Carolina Man Gets Off Thanks To 'Stand Your Ground' After Shooting And Killing Innocent Bystander | ThinkProgress
Earlier that day, a group of girls had followed and threatened Scott’s 15-year-old daughter. They later drove past Scott’s house in an SUV. But when Scott walked out of his house with a handgun to confront the “women thugs,” as he described them, he instead fired straight into the 1992 Honda of Darrell Niles, who was unarmed. Niles was killed instantly. Some questions remain in the case: The group of girls may have fired shots first, but testimony is conflicted on if shots were fired at Scott himself, or at all. There is also some indication that Scott was primed to shoot his gun at someone: Even prior to the shooting, he had a sign in his window that read, “Fight Crime – Shoot First,” according to a 5th Circuit Assistant Solicitor. Despite the defense’s evidence that Scott had no proof the young man was an “imminent threat,” Scott’s attorney — who, oddly enough, is state Rep. Todd Rutherford (D-SC) — argued that if Scott hadn’t shot Niles, he would have had to go back to his home and “hope that the cavalry (police) are going to come.” “All that matters is that Mr. Scott felt his life was in jeopardy,” Rutherford said. On Wednesday, Circuit Judge Maite Murphy accepted those arguments and ruled that Scott believed he was aiming for the group that had threatened his daughter, and therefore was protected under South Carolina’s 2006 Stand Your Ground law.
