There's no such carve-out in the law.

What I'm trying to figure out in that child pron case is the charge of manufacturing child porn. Are they charging this kid with manufacturing child pron because he took a picture of himself? If that's the situation this is really fucked and millions of kids are at risk.

And wouldn't the cops/city be manufacturing child porn (and maybe endangering the welfare of a minor) by injecting his pen0r and forcing it to salute them? Assuming they will be recording the festivities.

Yes.

There's generally a law enforcement exception to these kinds of charges.

This isn't the first time a teen has been charged with distributing child porn for taking a selfie. Most of the ones I've seen have been girls.

The idea has been bandied about before, but was anyone ever actually charged? I don't think so.

Lol what?

From google, I can find at least one case where a person has been arrested for it.

Has anyone ever been convicted?
post #776 of 6095
The vast majority of those cases are handled as Juvenile matters so there's not a conviction, there is (in most jurisdictions) an adjudication of delinquency. Not all these kids go to kiddie jail, but many of them do have to register as sex offenders. I had one such case where the juvenile was adjudicated delinquent but we were able to win on appeal. Just took two years of the dumb kid's life. When he turned 18 half way through his name was up on the PSP website as a sex offender.

A North Augusta mother is in jail after witnesses say she left her nine-year-old daughter at a nearby park, for hours at a time.
Hours at a time? At a park? In the summer? Gosh! That certainly sounds normal and fun like a reason to throw a mom in jail—and place the child in state custody.

Here are the facts: Debra Harrell works at McDonald's in North Augusta, South Carolina. For most of the summer, her daughter had stayed there with her, playing on a laptop that Harrell had scrounged up the money to purchase. (McDonald's has free WiFi.) Sadly, the Harrell home was robbed and the laptop stolen, so the girl asked her mother if she could be dropped off at the park to play instead.

Harrell said yes. She gave her daughter a cell phone. The girl went to the park—a place so popular that at any given time there are about 40 kids frolicking—two days in a row. There were swings, a "splash pad," and shade. On her third day at the park, an adult asked the girl where her mother was. At work, the daughter replied.

The shocked adult called the cops. Authorities declared the girl "abandoned" and proceeded to arrest the mother.

That's not the police so much as it is stupid parents not minding their own fucking business.

Jesus, I'm not even that old, but when I was a kid, we'd have days in the summer without parental supervision (or at least part of the day). By the time I turned 16, as long as I showed up to school, my parents didn't seem to care where I was.

Also, how does an evil corporation like McDonalds allow an employee's kid take up one of their tables all day? Don't they hate their employees, etc?

Well, it was a policeman who arrested the woman. So while busybody parents and obnoxious CPS social workers need to be chastised so does that dumb cop who arrested her.

Farmville family stunned that officer fatally shot Golden Retriever
Quote:
PRINCE EDWARD COUNTY, Va. — A Farmville family is searching for answers after a Prince Edward Deputy shot their 8-year-old Golden Retriever, named Party, ultimately killing him.
“The dog was at the same level of the officer when he fired,” said homeowner Stephen Carwile, and indicated that the deputy was standing at the bottom of the deck.

The incident happened June 27 while the family wasn’t home. A deputy was serving Carwile a civil warrant when he said he felt threatened by the dog.

“I come home to blood all over the place all over my porch,” said Carwile. He called the sheriff’s office after he couldn’t find Party, then saw his blood stained deck and the warrant.

“The lieutenant called me and stated that my dog had tried to attack the officer and the officer had shot my dog.”

The Prince Edward Sheriff’s office put out the following press release:

On June 27, 2014 a Prince Edward County Deputy was charged by a vicious dog at a residence while he was attempting civil paper service. The Deputy tried to get away from the dog but the animal lunged at him so he fired his weapon as required by training. Animal Control was notified seeking medical assistance for the dog, but the animal later died. The incident was investigated by the Virginia State Police.

Party’s owner, Carwile’s 14-year-old stepson Prescott Stewart, said that’s not the dog he knew, and he can’t imagine the dog lunging at anyone.

“It’s like a void that has been put inside of me I can’t describe it; he was just that kind of dog that if he could be human, he could be my brother — it’s just hard,” Stewart said.

A necropsy shows Party was shot twice, and died of blood loss.

“Anything after the first shot the dog was disabled, the second shot he was just shooting to be cruel,” said Carwile.

The Carwiles said Party suffered on their deck for more than an hour before before he died in the care of the dog warden.

“I know he suffered, he was trying to get in the house,” he said. “He wanted one of us to open that door and let him him so he could be saved.”

“I still have bullet holes in my house, blood on my porch and bullet casings laying in my yard that I have to look at everyday and it just keeps going through my mind without anybody doing anything about this,” he added.

The Carwiles plan to file a civil suit. They want this case investigated and the deputy who killed their dog terminated.

“I want to see him loose his job and never tow a firearm again,” said Carwile.

“I just hope he thinks about it and realizes he did wrong,” said Stewart.
