Photos of nude kids are bad. Agreed!...But why is it okay for kids to be nude in public?

In this day and age especially, why would parents take their children to a nude beach. Hog Heaven for a pedo even with no camera! Clueless doesn't even cover it.

You are right, on a per capita basis WI has more weirdos and pervs than any state in the midwest. It also has more large people, they LOVE eatin'!

I agree, if this was a public beach. There are a number of nudists resorts in Florida, with families belonging. Sometimes some creep does try to photograph the members. As far as being a nudist, it doesn't bother me if they choose that lifestyle, maybe the kids grow up with less sexual hangups. My guess is sex isn't a dirty thing, like its portrayed in America.

I checked, it is a Federally owned beach where nude sunbathing is common on one end.

Um, where are the social workers and Child Protection Agencies??!!! Children should never be allowed to go to a nude beach or live in a nudist 'resort.' Clearly the parents that bring their children to such places are in need of a psych evaluation.

Not in any respect supportive of pedophiles, but it is disturbing that simply filming something that one can see with ones eyes can become criminal.

In fairness, those who were responsible for the children and allowed or made them go nude should be charged with producing child pornography, as well as those on the beach who looked at said nude children which would be more pornographic than photos thereof.

I don't think kids belong on a nude beach in the first place, however the charges against this guy are questionable. If you're going to go nude on a nude beach, why is it illegal to take photos? He might escape the charges on this one! It could get worse...if these charges led to a raid of his home the whole thing could get thrown out!

Civilized people don't walk around in public naked. How do they get away with this? By calling it a new kind of religion? Who would want their kids looking at naked, fat, ugly strangers?

He has child pornography at home, he is going to jail, he was probably taking pictures to sell to other predators.

Wow, so many ignorant comments here. So what if people walk around naked? If it's not YOUR thing, then keep the clothes on. Just because you don't like it doesn't give you a reason to chastise it. You people are proving how big of prudes Americans really are.

Also, if this guy only had recordings from the nude beaches and not real kiddie porn, he's going to be in for a payday from this. The SCOTUS has ruled that pics/video of nude kids is not sexual and therefor not kiddie porn. I wouldn't expect a hick cop to know case law, put a prosecutor should.

Just because someone doesn't do the things I do, doesn't make them candidates for a psych exam. I say live and let live.
