    Or the fault goes to those who pursued this family. Parents take pictures of their children in the tub, on the pot or wherever. Their cute little buggers. Once the parent takes the film into a public place it becomes a public issue that can be and should be reviewed but I would say with enough caution not to invade that families privacy.

    The part that bothered me was the decision to take their children away and put the parents on the sex offender list. These are personal family photos. It's not like they busted the dad selling them to perverts online or in a back alley for crying out loud.

    Wal-mart was doing their duty to alert the authorities. I would not want an hourly Walmart associate try to use their judgment and be the final arbitor as to whether or not something is porn.

    I don't know if the authorities made the right decision or not...I haven't seen the pics.

    Yep. And the authorities believe they made the right decision.

    To me, these are silly laws, but I don't write the laws. Wal-Mart just did what they were ordered to do and the authorities agreed with the decision.

    Sometimes common sense needs to prevail. In this case it didn't.

    I don't have any completely naked photos of my kids. I have a couple of the boys in underwear, one of one of some of the kids in the tub (but you can't see anything), and one of about 7 kids in a tub, which is actually a treasure, because it's of my younger two and all their Indian cousins getting a bath after playing in the dirt in their grandma's backyard. They have no contact now, so it's really one of the only pics of them all together.

    None of those kids is 4 y.o. yet, in the photo.
