Serves her right? Have you lost your mind?? The girl is 14, a child. There is no way, no matter how mature, a child of that age can fully comprehend sex and sexuality. She wasn't being mean, it wasn't a prank....she didn't harm or exploit anyone but herself. The girl needs help, counseling and guidance. Everyone wonders what's happened to the younger generation. Teen sex and violence are on the rise. But everyday our children are infused with an over abundance of sex and violence in the media. We, as a society, treat them like criminals ....5 year olds are arrested for playground scuffles, if you skip a day or two of school, rather than detention your liable to face truancy charges and face, at the very least, probation and a juvinile record. It's time we started treating children like children instead of mini adults. And children need guidance, they need to be taught morals and values,they need heros and someone to look up to beside Britney Spears, etc. And finally...they need NOT to be punished as criminals for every little mistake they make. Parents need to raise their children, not the media or the court system.

How does it make any sense WHATSOEVER to hold a child accountable for a crime whose very criminality rests on the assumption that children are too immature to assume responsibility for their actions? At times I can't believe the utter idiocy of the "adults" who run our justice system.

^^Ok I have to agree with you, but in my original post I meant serves her right for posting nude pics to her underage boyfriend on MySpace for God sakes.

And I agree with you today's schools go after elementary students like common criminals.

My 8 year old niece hadn't been feeling well and had been missing some days or coming home early. This was explained to the school and they said it was fine. Well I guess not because child welfare and a school official showed up to our home demanding to know why she was being truant even though we'd been calling in her abscences. It was so scary and luckily we had nothing to hide and they saw that and stopped coming around.

I'm just 21 years old and I graduated from 6th garde in 2000. Back in my day (I know I'm still young) it took a child showing up to school with a potato sack on before child welfare would even get involved. I went to a poor school on top of that so when I see child welfare going after people who've just been having a bad couple of days and not the actual abusive types I can see why the system is very screwed up nowadays.

what happened here is a paradox if she posted nude pictures of herself she is exploiting herself but if somebody else looks at it they are exploiting her it is illegal to look at child pornagraphy a 7 year old is old enough to know the differance betwen right and wrong and can be charged with a crime

Young girls are doing it because Amanda Forsyth from pompton lakes nj is. All these young girls see all the attention she is getting and they want to be like her. It's sad but it's true. She has websites showing every inch of her body and everyone knows about them. Girls want to be popular like her but doesn't know how far they have to go to get there

You, are an idiot. I know Amanda. She has a stalker who posts photos of her someone she used to talk to many years ago he still used images against her. It's pathetic and sad. He put them all over the internet. What this little girl did has nothing to do with Amanda Forsyth, is she her mother? Smh.

You have no idea. All of these pics arent coming from only 1 person....There are multiple guys putting her pics out there because she sent them to so many. Just now, she's on blast and trying to make it sound like only one instead of sounding like a slut. Dont let her play u for stupid too. NOW she's worried about her image cause her looks are shot, and cant play tramp anymore. Read the DIFFERENT stories from DIFFERENT people, Look at the DIFFERENT pics from over YEARS
