I think most parents can say when there kids were little that they have the cute little pics of them in the bathtub playing. I know I have a few and they are totally innocent.

Well there was a family in Arizona that went on vacation and while gone the mom took cute pics of her kids ages 5, 4 and 18 months playing in the bathtub together. She also took about 100 family vacation pictures. Well she gets home and heads to Walmart to get the pictures printed. The Walmart employee sees the pictures and calls the police because they feel they are pornographic.

From there the children are removed from the home (for a few days), it takes the parents month to regain custody of them. They had their friends, family and co-workers interviewed and were told that the couple were "sexually abusing" their children and taking pornographic pictures of them. In the end the charges were dismissed. The family is now suing Walmart and the state of Arizona saying they suffered “emotional stress, headaches, nightmares, a general feeling of malaise, shock to their nervous system, grief and depression.” You can read more here.

So do you think that Walmart crossed the line? Do you feel that if it made them feel uncomfortable that they had the right to call the police and at that point it was in the hands of the police?

Re: Bathtime Photos Are They Pornographic?

Ridiculous, I have quite a few myself of when son was a lil' guy!! they are cute and im sure every parent has them... I understand that its better to be safe than sorry when you suspect that there may be child abuse, but you have to understand the difference between pornographic and innocent. The cops probably went overboard on this one, and to have the kids taken away over it is pathetic, I feel for the parents and I would do the same thing, they must have gone thru he!! during that ordeal!

Re: Bathtime Photos Are They Pornographic?

yeah I agree I have tons of pics when my kids were little in the tub. Heck I have tons of pics when I was little that my parents took - totally innocent. I applaud the police in trying to protect kids but this was way overboard. I can't imagine what the parents and the kids went though, not to mention being called a sexual abuser to friends and co-workers. I hope the hit the lotto when they sue.

Re: Bathtime Photos Are They Pornographic?
almost makes me wonder if they were really super innocent pics as we're all imagining them to be. Confused just seems so weird that it would get that far!!

Re: Bathtime Photos Are They Pornographic?
i think like the article i found said, you need to see some sort of sexual intent. and apparently there clearly wasn't. i'm dismayed the police took the action that they did.
ridiculous. and how horrible that the family had to go through that. the wamart photo worker is a dummy... and Walmart even dumber for backing it up. i hope they get a boatload of $ when they sue.
