Top 6 reasons the law is “perverted” in this sexting case

Six perversions of law in this sexting case. Two Zero Aggression solutions.

Reason, on their blog, tells the entire story of Trey Sims, a 17-year-old who videoed himself “fondling his erect penis.” A warrant was issued, so he could be charged with child pornography. But there are six perversions in this sexting case…

1. How can you victimize yourself? Trey Sims is the victim because the porn was of his juvenile erection. Turns out, he’s also the perpetrator! How is it possible to victimize yourself? Who owes you damages at that point?

2. A search warrant was issued for photographic evidence of body parts seen in the video, for the sake of comparisons. To record this information, a police officer (David Abbott, pictured on this page) took photos of Sims penis! How is this not child pornography? Who owns this cock, the police (The State) or the juvenile in question? But wait, it gets worse…

3. In order to do a proper photographic comparison, the investigating officer needed Sims’ tallywhacker to be erect. So, the cop gave the young man specific masturbation instructions. How is this not child molestation on top of child porn? Shouldn’t Sims (and his parents) believe he’s victimized by this point?

Stick with us. The weirdness doesn’t end there!

4. It’s illegal to have child porn on any electronic device you own. When Sims couldn’t achieve an erection, the officer took photos anyway — on his personal cell phone!

Now, public outcry put a stop to the investigation. But here’s a postscript which adds insult to injury…

5. The cop committed suicide. This officer, whose job was investigating sex offenses for the Northern Virginia-Washington DC Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, was about to be arrested for molesting two boys he met as a hockey coach.

6. Now, when the Founders wrote the Fourth Amendment, and they declared a warrant had to specify the items that were to be “searched and seized,” do you think this was the kind of seizing they had in mind? Well, Robert King, Judge, U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit, says the officer was justified because he was just doing his job.

There are Zero Aggression solutions to this madness…

First, if no one claims to be a victim of aggression then there is no role for the police, politicians, or juries EVER.

In addition, under a system of delegated powers (such as our claims to be), police have no powers that citizens themselves didn’t have first. In other words, if it’s wrong for you to tell a boy to masturbate in front of your filming device, it’s wrong for cops too.
