    "Sour godliness is the devil's religion"
    - the Wicked Flea

    To me, this case illustrates one thing - the obsession - to the point of psychosis - that some of the "establishment" has with sex. This happens to be a negative obsession, but no less damaging than than any sexual obsession with the same intensity.

    I've heard it all before - "zero tolerance" - when what is really meant is "zero intelligence".

    I read somewhere once that "religion is the root of all evil".

    The longer I live, the more I wonder.

    I think that we need to hire more police, build more jails, elect more judges to create more situations like this...What a sad commentary on our society.

    I'm reminded of the time when the City of Tampa assigned thirty (30) of their finest - Patrolmen to cover the beaches because, - gasp!! - there were girls there running around TOPLESS!! People being mudered on the streets, and the Keystone Kops, Beach Division, was alive and well.

    The girls merely wore T-Shirts - so they conformed to the law. No practical difference after they become wet (I wonder if this was the star of ...), but everything was legal.

    Net result of all that? The "Topless" Clubs - some really rough places - went out of business left and right. Why pay exhorbitant prices for a beer when the beach was free ....?

    Tampa was a safer place.

    Then you've got the story of a local photographer that got stopped by customs. Why? Well the new mother had baby photos! The nerve naked baby on bear skin rug. I still think the only reason she got her stuff back was related to the fact she was a pro. The average new mother would have lost thier stuff.

    OTOH during the last year both Project P [A local police taskforce] and the chief have mentioned how digital has made child porn so much harder to track down.

    At times it's clear they go too far at others it seems they aren't doing enough-((

    The Austrailians got lucky: they got the convicts while we got the puritans.

    I have a recurring argument with a friend over the true level of freedom available in this great country of ours. I say many "over-regulated socialist" countries offer greater practical freedoms as officials there are invested with greater leeway in enforcing those regulations. Here, in the US, we're too egalitarian and litigious to allow enforcement of regulations to be tempered by common sense and good judgment.

    Well, thanks for ruining a perfectly good day. I kept reading and kept thinking, "You have got to be kidding."

    Sadly, these aren't the only people who have had this happen to them. Something is WAY out of control here. I know that we feel an obligation to protect children but this isn't protection, this is harmful to all involved.

    You would think they would censor all the R rated, soft porn flicks on the boob tube then to arrest mother boob suckeling her infant. What about all the topless female toddlers at the beach? Isn't Texas Bush country? Maybe the justice dept owns stock in J&J. Wouldn't want to hurt the stock by allowing good down home breast feeding in their jurisdiction. Are their any diaper commercials aired in Texas?
    Time & tides wait for no one, especially photographers.

    What a friggin mess. I don't get it, but then when I see naked children I don't think of sex. The pervs that made these accusations need to be analyzed.
