    A store owner is free to call the police if they suspect shoplifting. In fact, at least in the USA, that's the only thing they can do. They're not allowed to detain or search you.

    As for obeying a law "correctly", I state again that calling the police to report that a law may have been broken is not improper behavior. Citizens are not required to be legal experts; if they're unsure, they're allowed to ask law enforcement to investigate. If the lab made a habit of reporting things that a reasonable person would not, the police can deal with that, but that doesn't appear to be the case here.

    Clearly it's the investigators who screwed the pooch here.

    Wait, why wouldn't you print that? This intrigues and confuses me.

    So you'll print for example, a picture of someone's butthole, penis, vagina, but not vagina giving birth?

    What about a penis or phalanges inserted into an orifice?

    Just covering my bases I'm not saying this would be normal but for example the adult industry photographs such things and they have to send the images for processing somewhere, (or used to when they shot film) so why is giving birth objectionable.

    Having watched a vagina giving birth twice, I understand why he wouldn't print it. It has little to do with any sexual implications of said organ.

    I really hope you're wife doesn't read APUG.

    Also, regarding the whole issue, it's about time somebody exhibited a series of naked pictures of themselves as a child. 10 foot enlargements. That would shed some new light.

    I've seen a birth, it's messy but beautiful too.

    the lab that i referred to earlier in this thread printed porn often,
    according to people that i knew who worked there, some was
    in "good taste" (whatever that means ) and some was pretty disgusting
    and disturbing. but when images show MINORS ... that is a different story
    they called the cops + DCYF

    I find birth gross, Ive printed many forensic images so have pretty much seen it all but when it comes to women popping out a baby I don't want to spend my time printing this when i could be printing some thing else. Its just not something i want to see. second to women giving birth is cat ladies who love to shoot their cats.

    Hahaha!! Ok point taken, so do you just call them up after processing the film and say "sorry I don't print birth"? Or how do you deal with it? Just curious, no judgement.

    Its always been in other labs that I've come across such images and I've asked other printers to do it if they wish but I refuse. And in my own lab I have never and will never come across it.

    I've been to a few hundred crime scenes and given birth (just once). I'd choose to look at crime scene photos, too.
