Ok so I found this link from Yahoo Answers and thought it was ridiculous. Apparently this couple took bath time pictures of their naked kids (most parents do this right?) to Walmart to get developed and some woman in the photo developing place called the police and CPS on the couple. Well their kids got taken away for a month and the parents now have to register as sex offenders and the mom lost her job as a teacher for 1 year! What is this country coming to?
Today's moment-of-pause has been brought to you by Wal-Mart and the city of Peoria, Az. Apparently, some photo-clerk vigilante, diligently on the lookout for child pornography, saw photos of kids during bath time and decided to call the cops, according to a story on Good Morning America.
Next thing the parents of these kids knew, the children were removed from their home. For an entire month. Mom got suspended from her job for a year and both -- Anthony and Lisa Demaree -- were added to a list of sex offenders. The judge in the case said the pix were harmless.
"I don't understand it at all," Anthony Demaree told GMA, with his wife by his side. "Ninety, 95 percent of the families out there in America have these exact same photos."
Now they've got another shot to take. This time it's directed at Wal-Mart and their hometown.PRODUCTION PLAYER! DO NOT DELETE.
Do you think the clerk and the police did the right thing?
