Jailed for possession of video of himself masturbating when he was 12. Another victim of child porn laws faces minimum 2 year jail

A young man got arrested for possession of child porn, depicting a 12 year boy old masturbating. It is his own video: he recorded himself when he was 12 years old. Mandatory minimum jail sentence: 2 years.

Think hard: maybe you took some indecent photos of yourself. Or your family album contains nunde photos mom took when you were a toddler.  Burn your childhood pictures while you still are out of jail!

Around Thanksgiving while my cousin was at work, his girlfriend decided to snoop around his house. She found videos in his closet and watched them. They were of a 12 year old boy masturbating. The girlfriend, understandably, freaked out and brought one of the tapes to the police and they promptly arrested my cousin and charged him with possession of child porn. Minimum mandatory sentence: 2 years, no tolerance.

So as it turns out, the kid in those videos, it was my cousin. Yeah. He had taped himself masturbating multiple times as a kid and for whatever reason he held on to the tapes. He said he didn’t even remember having them but i doubt it. At any rate, creepy but innocent. Right?

But guess what, the state where we live has a zero tolerance policy for child porn and despite the fact that they tore his house and computer apart and found nothing, there is still a minimum mandatory sentence of 2 years. We will soon find out what happens, but it is very possible that a man is about to go to jail for possessing porn videos of himself.

Human-Stupidity.com Analysis

  1. This is one of the extreme cases of the child porn witch hunt.
    1. Totally uselessly causing trauma in innocent people,
    2. huge expenses in legal fees,
    3. bogging up police and law enforcement capacity for nonsensical persecution
  2. Of course, the child porn prosecutions are meant to protect an innocent child “victim” from abuse. So 25 year old John Doe gets jailed to protect 12 year old John Doe from abusing himself? Or 12 year old John Doe gets protected from being re-victimized when 25 year old John Doe watches his own movie? Or 25 year old John Doe might have totally forgotten his old movie and not have watched it for a decade. Still, he needs to be jailed to be protected from victimization!? And of course, as a child abuser, he will most likely be raped in prison. How far has our logic and our legal system sunk.
  3. Most normal people would agree that this is excessive zeal. Of course, then the question arises: where should the limit be drawn?
    • what kind of child porn should be punished?
    • should possession of depictions of legal acts really be punished?
    • Should people be punished for a video of child sexual activity that by all definitions was not abuse?
    • And does the possession of computer files, that are nothing but 0’s and 1’s really get people into jail for years? The USA has a tradition of freedom of expression that are getting more encroached upon. Human Stupidity analyzes this on other posts.
    • “Sticks and stones may break my bones (but words will never hurt me)”.  Should we not, in analogy, say: Sexual abuse may hurt me, but 0’s and 1’s in computer files will never hurt me. All this trauma could be avoided by scrapping all laws for possession. Punish abusers, not people who possess the photos.
    • Almost all so called “child porn” in reality is “adolescent nudity” or consensual “sexual activities” of sexually active teenagers. We are not not aware of any deaths due to child porn production. Most child porn is totally harmless, like adolescents taking their own photos, or formerly legal 16 year old sex films made legally in Holland 30 years ago.
    • On the other hand there was a death in the production of the following documentary:  Beating Death Of Derrion Albert,16,Caught On Video as described in Nude adolescent photos: a Crime. Videos of lynching, killing, beating adolescents are legal Prime Time TV. Possession, production, and distributions are perfectly legal.
  4. I wish to get confirmation of this story from a reputable news agency or newspaper, instead of a hearsay report.  But even if it were untrue, it could happen. It rings true. Similar things have happened, 15 year old girls get traumatized with sexting charges for harmless nude photos. So prosecuting an adult for the movies he took of himself 15 years ago, looks convincing and true

My cousin’s lawyer described it like this. The law is designed to chill and prevent the existence and purveyance of all child pornography. By merely possessing images of such things, the law argues, it is perpetuating the culture and ubiquity of child pornography. Hence, zero tolerance.

My cousin would by no means be the first victim of these draconian laws. The lawyer said teenagers are routinely charged with the same laws for sending nude pics of themselves over their phones. He also said people have gone to jail for creating drawings of underage sex. reddit comment

Some commentators at reddit remarked that he is stupid for still being with that girl. But by conventional wisdom she acted correctly. She found heinous child porn of a 12 year old masturbating and reported it to police.

      @Scavengergirl, we cannot know what type of “child porn” is common. Because of intentionally inflammatory misleading language, “adolescent nudity”, even adolescents dancing in leotards, is called “child porn”. Even adolescent lingerie photos from the department store are child porn, when collected by someone suspected to collect them for prurient motives. And possession of child pornography is the only crime where even University researchers are in jail for just checking things out.

      So nobody in his right mind can check it out what type of child porn is common.

      Did you check out what child pornography type is common? Do you know? What method did you use to find out and verify?

      I will soon write a scalding critique about the Copine and Sap scales which are used to judge the gravity of child porn. They don’t differentiate by age (1 year old penetrative sex = 15 year old penetrative sex) nor by consent (violent forcible rape = sex with underage girl friend). This cynical state of affair is not my fault, it is the manipulative misleading incendiary laws enacted by feminists and approved by the misled populace.

    It’s quite simple really: since it is now illegal to have healthy thoughts about the survival of Western Civilization, the natural angst that used to be channeled into hating the behaviour of other (racial) groups is now channeled – by decree – into such PC offenses as smoking, drunk driving, pedophilia, and drug abuse.

    These kind of cases make me very sad.I can’t stand it when innocent people become victims of human stupidity.

    And that girlfriend of his,she obviously does not love that guy.Because true love is understanding and forgiving.She went straight to police?What a nasty and selfish woman.Truely a sad case.

    This is why Japan passed a law banning creating porno movies involving children, in 1999 (due to international leftist/feminist pressure), but not a law banning possession. Now when you visit a bookstore in Tokyo you won’t find lolita magazines, but keeping your old stash is not going to get you into jail.
    Obviously this is a but since the policy makers know what they are doing when passing such laws, they know it would create division by zero errors like the above story but they don’t care. Since protecting then children business is good sounding business. And it gets them them votes.
