DeathAndTaxes- A bunch of teens at a Colorado high school are in serious trouble after authorities uncovered a “sexting ring” dedicated to maintaining and growing a database of explicit photos of basically every kid in town.
According to The New York Times, students in Cañon City hid said nudes in a “vault” app that looked and worked like a normal calculator. “Nothing to see here, teach, just doing some boring math homework and not sexting at all.” But enter the secret code, and you gain access to a treasure trove of underage n00dz that would make Gary Glitter blush. Via the Times:
George Welsh, the superintendent of the Cañon City school system, said students at Cañon City High School had been circulating 300 to 400 nude photographs, including images of “certainly over 100 different kids,” on their cellphones. “This is a lot of kids involved,” he said, adding that the children in the pictures were believed to be students at the high school as well as eighth graders from the middle school.
They say there’s an equal number of girl nudes and boy nudes in the spank bank, which is nice.
Numerous members of the football team are thought to be at the center of the “ring,” prompting the school district to cancel the final game of the season. “If we’re going to preach character and integrity and doing the right thing when nobody’s looking, we just can’t step on the field and compete — represent our school and our community with that,” athletics director Scott Manchester said at a news conference. If that’s true, they should cancel every football game ever, since anyone who’s ever seen a movie about high school knows high school football players are amoral bullies.
Since possessing or distributing child pornography is a felony in Colorado, it’s possible some of the kids will be charged with crimes, but authorities are confused about how to do this when everyone involved is underage. Via SkyNews:
It could take months to sort the offenders from the victims, District Attorney Thom LeDoux told a news conference.
He said he would charge students only if absolutely necessary, but warned that consent is not a factor when dealing with nude photographs of children under the age of 18.
“It doesn’t matter if it was consensual,” Mr LeDoux told reporters. “There is no distinction according to Colorado state statutes.
“The district attorney’s office will make distinctions as we see fit.”
“It doesn’t matter if it was consensual” being a super great lesson to teach impressionable youngsters.
As previously discussed, it’s insane to charge minors with sex crimes for what’s basically just a safer version of things teens have been doing with each other for centuries. Maybe instead of stripping teens of the agency to consent to developmentally appropriate activities, adults should teach them about consent, boundaries, respect, etc., and then get the hell out of their rooms.
Or maybe we should just throw them all in prison until they get their hormones under control. Just spitballing ideas here.
Lets get the obvious out of the way. Kids in high school watch porn, have sex, smoke cigs, drink and all the above now a days. Baring any pedophilia, all this shit is just expected in the culture of Americana these days. I will say though, I’m jealous they got each other’s nudes. We all know back then we wanted to see every girl in home room naked. Teachers included. But that means you had to have sex in order to see a nipple. Sure we had the luck of occasionally seeing 2 people going at it in the stairwell or bathroom but we definitely didn’t have the technological convenience of some remote access vault of nudes just stored on everyone in your graduating class.
Now back then your boy dabbled in a porn ring in High school. 4th grade Mrs. K’s class. Me and like 4 other buddies would go home and print out nudes and see who had the best ones. Yea, thats right. Printed it out. Color inks expensive like a mother fucker but we all came through. We would hide them in a text book all folded up. One night i remember my buddy Aim chatted me saying he got a good one. So good you know what he did? He FAXED that shit to me. No lie, first time i used a fax machine and boy i wont ever forget the picture. Brought it in the next day and showed all our friends. See we only found simple shit back then like a girl laying with no thong. Simple shit. This on the other hand was like going from baby’s milk straight to bourbon. It was some sexy latina chick in baby blue heels and matching bikini top with her finger in her pussy. Clit just daggering your eyeballs. Now the problem was we kept these in our text books. And when your in the 4th grade, your kind of dumb and forgetful. No one will admit to who fucked up but one of us stuck the book back in the front counter as a copy of the text book for people who left it at home. These two chicks, one i had a crush on, grabbed a copy off the shelf and turned it open. I knew right then and there we fucked up. Eyes as wide as ever, and when she showed the teacher, I could see the look of shock as this phat booty latina chick is playing with her pussy right in Mrs. K’s face.
We didn’t have the convenience of digital mobile apps that we can carry with us everywhere. We literally had to make paper trails. I guess that’s just a part of life. You’re born, you grow, you go to school, you become a part of a porn ring, and you will get caught eventually. Whether its paper print outs of a girl fingering her pussy or digital compressed files of Julie from Earth science flashing her tits, you will be caught. C’est La Vie.
