    Seems like an invasion of privacy to me.

    But I don't possess the wisdom of that judge ... I guess.

    And what if some pervert does this to a 12 year old girl? He doesn't get arrested?

    Child protection laws have to trump this judges decision right?

    Right?

    Could be a slippery slope depending on how the law is rewritten.

    OK, explain it to me then.

    What harm is done to the 'target', if they are unaware of the perversion? They sure as Hell can't be identified from that particular angle.

    It's not like the pervs are scanning through their clothing, which I believe is propitiatory to the TSA.

    And what harm is it to us if the NSA listens in on our calls if we don't know it? See where I'm going?

    I have never heard perverts used to describe the NSA before, but OK, I can go along with that.

    Deflection??

    Your aside is a threat to your freedom, taken to extreme.

    The subject of the thread is some pervert satisfying his peccadilloes, hopefully with no impact on anyone else.

    Hardly in the same league.

    Your whole point was ..... what someone doesn't know shouldn't hurt them.
    According to your logic, it's okay to be a victim as long as you don't know about it. That's kind of ironic since you consider Snowden Nobel Peace Prize material.

    How can you be a victim if you are unaware? What injury has occurred?

    As to your second point, I fail to see the link. Is the U.S. the victim, for surely they now know about it.

    Snowden? He knew full well what he was doing, so how is he a victim??

    If someone stole something from you and you didn't realize or miss what was stolen, does that mean your not a victim?

    But according to your logic ..... Why should anyone care when the citizens of US didn't know?

    Nevermind, Your misunderstanding every comment I make.

    Finally, something I can agree with.

    Look, if you are upset because some perv will get his jollies from taking these pictures, just say so.

    Until you can show other evidence, it appears to be yet another victimless 'crime'.

    These photos get circulated on the internet.

    Are you so sure that these people can't be identified?

    I wouldn't be so quick to label this victimless.

    And if you're(OMG correct usage) upset that the government might be collecting your data and listening to your calls, just say so. But it's just as much as a victimless act according to your logic. Saying it's not would be very hypocritical of you.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't child porn illegal even without the face?

    Sure, so the ******* might photoshop something up, but the angle would be very difficult to overcome. ;)

    You are giving the US Courts too much credit.
