might help to think the police enforce the laws enacted by a governing body... so why blame them , pictures depend upon content ...

Mom has had kiddy porn hanging on the living room wall for 30 years. 2 months old naked & butt up on a furry blanket. The shame, the horror!:'/

What makes me vomit is you want to take an innocent photo of your child in the bath and some know it all head in the cloud arse[normally some usless pointless social worker] makes you out to be some sort of pervert.Unless it's getting posted in the Pervert Times what's the problem.
Yes there are freak families out there but it seems the families that have the right amount of digits on their hands and feet are the ones vilified.

I am not sure who that was directed to. If it was directed to me, you might have misunderstood my intention. Or maybe you were just saying. At any rate, the public shouldn't expect the police to be the art cops. Just because something offends you doesn't mean you call the cops to report it. I saw nothing wrong with the photo, and obviously, the police didn't either. As for the one about the kid with a bong, I can see that being unlawful. Now, there are real jackasses who film themselves committing crimes, and they deserve whatever they get. Hey, they essentially have a taped confession made of their own free will and without coercion.

It is funny what people do report to the cops a lot of times. Around here, the cops have received reports of superheroes scaling buildings. Or someone calls about a fight and when they get there, everyone is like, "Man, I ain't seen s**t!"

Some call about mishung doors. "I swear officer, someone broke in, removed my doors, and rehung them crooked." No, what happened was that the foundation shifted due to weather conditions. So one may have to wait that out, tighten the screws on the door, or if it is a mobile home, turn the jack a little.

It is not the number of digits that are the problem, but what they do with them.

I worked in law enforcement for many years. What most people don't realize is, there are too many pedophiles out there who will park near your child's bus stop and watch them walk home, and you do not want to know what they are thinking about your child as they self-pleasure themselves.

Just because you think these naked pictures of youru child are cute & innocent & totally devoid of sexual stimulus--well, that doesn't mean these pedophiles feel the same way. You really don't want them to have access to your children's photos. Please. You need to protect your children, and prevent stimulating these pedophiles into going out and committing terrible crimes against innocent children, by not posting your "child porn" photos. To you, they are innocent. To pedophiles, they are a sexual stimulant that will make them go out and do unspeakable things to an innocent child that may or may not live to tell about it. Please keep this in mind, and only share personal naked pictures with people you can truly trust.

That, IMO, was not a 'bath' photo. You don't bathe with your cloths on and that child was clothed, posing for the camera and the child's mother was very involved with taking pictures...creepy. Almost as creepy as poser Laura Beth posting pictures, right here on Offbeat, of a supposedly dead child in a casket. How's that for parental involvement, Slack?

I saw a photo shoot once where they placed models in water so the hair would flow, it was neat.
I thought the pic was ok, kinda artsy.
