It really made me wonder what the heck was going on. Well it turns out a couple gave their children a bath and a cute photo was taken, with all innocence behind it. Someone at Walmart, where the photos were developed called authorities and all mayhem ensued with PC's confiscated and all types of storage devices for digital photos. After about a month of foster care, the children were returned to the parents after a judge ruled there was nothing pornographic about the photos. I'm all for catching perverts who have child pornography, but this is insane. Here is what I see as ridiculous, these same parents have reared their children since birth, and have seen their children 1000's of times naked, but you snap one innocent photo and you're scrutinized by the law. And really doesn't this then open up doors to scrutinze every piece of art or TV commercial or advertisment that ever displayed naked children? What about all those "Funniest Home Videos" where parents film children naked? When is it going to far for photo developers to report what they see? At what point is it an invasion of privacy versus reporting a criminal act?"
