You Can Have Sex With Them; Just Don't Photograph Them - Reason Magazine
There is just so much wrong with this
The first thing that popped into my head as I started reading is a Family Guy skit, where police go into a hotel room where a man is paying a woman to have sex. They say they are going to arrest them for prostitution, but the man says it's fine because they are going to film it, so it's porn. Sort of like this in reverse.
The article brings up problems with mandatory sentencing, clashes between state and federal law, unnecessary prosecution, just a host of issues.
Amazing how idiotic the law is at times.
As a police officer, he should have known the law. As a police officer, he is in a position of power, not unlike a teacher or priest. The law may be ambiguous, but justice will prevail. Karma's a bitch pervert.
Are you saying you consider it justice that a man can legally have a sexual relationship, but if he takes a photograph of any of the sexual activities in that legal relationship, he has committed a crime? I get that impression because of the final sentence in your post.
No. I think it's justice that he is now in trouble and he has been publicly exposed for his perversion. A 34 year old married cop may LEGALLY sleep with a child of 16, but it is still morally reprehensible. If it weren't for the porno law, he may never have been exposed. Karma.
If she's old enough to make her own decisions
and he's old enough to make his own decisions
What's so horrible about them making eachother happy?
16 is just to young to be fucking a grown man let alone with another teenager.
In trouble for the pics? lame
man, my heads going to implode, my oldest is 16, she could have girls like this around her.
It's a good thing we didn't set the age of consent laws in this country until after the human race was already established. If people had to wait until 16/17 years of age to procreate the human race would have died out in the early stages, say around 300 -400 ad.
Families have been and still are trading off daughters and arranging marriages, and have been doing so for centuries. It is illegal to have sexual relations with these girls that are under age, but it isn't if the parents give their consent for the two to get married first. Our laws on this matter are bizzare at best.
