In sexting case, Virginia prosecutors want to photo teen’s genitalia | Ars Technica

A Virginia teen is facing felony charges for allegedly sexting his girlfriend a video of his penis, and the authorities want to photograph his erect genitalia to bolster their case, according to news reports.

If found guilty, the 17-year-old boy, whose name Ars is withholding, could be jailed until his 21st birthday and be forced to register as a sex offender.

The boy’s attorney said that Prince William County prosecutors have obtained a warrant allowing them to photograph the boy’s erect private parts, a development his attorney is fighting along with the accusations.

Yeah, I know I’ve already blogged this, but it pisses me off so much I want to take another crack at it.

I think anybody involved with this should be immediately arrested, charged, and convicted on conspiracy to create and distribute, as well as creating and distributing, child pornography.  And that includes the fucktard judge who okayed that warrant.

And then I think they should all be forced to register as sex offenders for the rest of their lives.

UPDATE:  It is now being reported that the coppers have dropped this idea and the warrant will be allowed to lapse.  Still.  It should never have been sought, let alone issued, in the first place.

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.

  1. So it’s come to this; Life Imitates the movie “Porky’s”:

    Balbricker: Now, Mr. Carter. I know this is completely unorthodox. But I think this is the only way to find that boy. Now that penis had a mole on it – I’d recognize that penis anywhere. In spite of the juvenile snickers of some, this is a serious matter. That seducer and despoiler must be stopped; he’s extremely dangerous. And, Mr. Carter, I’m certain that everyone in this room knows who that is. He’s a contemptible little pervert who…

    Mr. Carter: Miss Balbricker!

    Balbricker: Well, I’m sorry, but I’ve got him now, and I’m not going to let him slip through my fingers again. Now, all I’m asking is that you give me five boys for a few minutes. The coaches can be present – Tommy Turner and any four boys you see fit to choose and we… and we… can put a stop to this menace. And it is a menace.

    [pause]

    Balbricker: Well, what are you gonna do about it?

    Mr. Carter: Five young boys in the nude, a police line-up so that you can identify his tallywhacker. Please, please can we call it a “tallywhacker”? Penis is so ppp… penis is so personal.

    Balbricker: We can put hoods over their heads to avoid embarrassment. Now listen: we have got to do it, as distasteful as it is. I know it’s him. That

    [pause]

    Balbricker: tallywhacker had a mole on it. And that mole is the key to it.

    Mr. Carter: Miss Balbricker, do you realize the difficulty of your request? Now, I would be very happy to, uh, to apprehend the young man myself. But can you imagine what the board of education would say if you were granted a line-up in order to examine their private pa… their private parts for an incriminating mole?

    Balbricker: But Mr. Carter.

    Coach Brakett: Mr. Carter, I think I have a way out of this. We, uh, call the police, and we have ‘em send over one of their sketch artists. And Miss Balbricker can give a description. We can put up “Wanted” posters all over school… “Have you seen this prick? Report immediately to Beulah Balbricker. Do not attempt to apprehend this prick, as it is armed and dangerous. It was last seen hanging out in the girls’ locker room at Angel Beach High School.”
