Nude Middle School Student Pictures Probed

Student cell phone nude pics probed
The Associated Press
Article Last Updated: 03/08/2007 12:11:20 PM MST

CASTLE ROCK -- Criminal charges are possible for middle school students who showed nude photos of classmates or forwarded them to other students via cell phones, authorities said Wednesday.

Investigators believe that nude photographs of as many as six students at Castle Rock Middle School were taken as part of a dare, then viewed or forwarded by as many as 50 students, KUSA-TV reported.

"Obviously the concern is these pictures getting on the Internet and available to everybody," said Douglas County Schools spokeswoman Whei Wong.

Castle Rock police Lt. Douglas Ernst said students could face jail time and fines depending on the intent of the photographs.

The school district said it was trying to determine an appropriate punishment.
Another reason why my kid won't be getting a cell phone anytime soon.

So your kid could not be the content of the pictures by not having a cell phone.

kids today are fucking stupid. stuff like this happens because every celeb seems to have a sex tape out and they are the "role models" that the media shoves down the throats of today's youth. it's sad, but this is just a small issue in a growing problem. the desensitization of today's youth is the real problem here. i'm sure these kids don't even realize that what they did was wrong, and if they do, it's only because their parents grounded them for it.

Kids today are just as stupid as they were 50 years ago . . . they just have easier access to information and technology that make their stupidity more dangerous.

just because this happened in one school in one town is it really a national concern?

it all comes back to how you raise your kids. oh, and be sure to break the lens in the camera before you hand it over to the kids.

There's all kinds of news vans over there. It's like a feeding frenzy!

What gets me mad is that the principal learned of this on Monday, but only reported it to the parents on WEDNESDAY. If she's a parent, I hope she can go to bed at night knowing that her own kids were being photographed like this and it got out to sum 50 others before she was told about it.

OK, you know what I'm trying to say. I hope.

Yes. Pretty much anything that happens to our nation's children that places them in harm, is a national concern.

A few years ago at my friend's high school, this guy got several girls to show him their boobies and then posted the pictures on the school's website (he was the webmaster). I think he got suspended for two weeks.

That was all? I assume they were 18 then.

I do know that they have started a lot of test cases to allow schools to discipline (expel, etc.) kids for things they do outside of school if it involves other students.

I agree with you 100%.

jpoppe is saying the same thing about teenagers that adults said in the 1950's. Kids will always do stupid things. The exact same situation described in this article happened at my high school; only given the technology of 1995 it didn't spread like wildfire. In my photography class...wait, let me clarify. This was in the stone age of 1995 when we used something called "film" to take pictures. This "film" had to be developed in something called a "darkroom". But I digress.

In my film class there was a lost and found bin where people would put loose frames of 35mm that had been left in the developer, or lying around the classroom. When you were bored you would go through the lost and found bin looking for something interesting.

One day someone discovered a single 35mm negative of a girl flashing her tits. This girl did not go to our high school, but it was quickly figured out who she was and that she went to a neighboring high school. Clearly this chick had some fun with her boyfriend, pictures were taken, and the idiot left the negative lying around. Everybody made their own personal copy of the picture and had a good time ogling her teenage ta-ta's. And that was it. She probably never knew we found the pictures, and we all grew up to be perfectly healthy normal individuals.

This new situation is the same, only the ease of distribution by cel phone and computer causes the whole thing to be exposed and blown out of proportion. Everybody needs to take a chill pill. These girls aren't going to grow up to be prostitutes and the guys aren't going to become serial killers.

Things are so nutty these days, I could see some of these students threatened with a criminal charge of distributing childporn or something. Asinine.

Might come in handy if he's chased by a local child molester.
