In a stuning reversal, Virginia authorities have decided to not pursue their plan to coercively create state-sanctioned child pornography
Virginia cops have agreed not to take any more pictures of a 17-year-old boy’s penis. They decided not to follow through on their initial plan, which was to detain the teen, take him to the hospital, inject him with drugs that would give him an erection, photograph his privates, and use special software to compare this penis picture with other penis pictures obtained by authorities.
The bizarre and disgusting approach—for which the Manassas City Police Department obtained a warrant—is part of a child pornography investigation. The presumed pornographers are not the cops snapping pictures of a teen’s genitals, but rather the teen himself, who allegedly exchanged nude texts with his 15-year-old girlfriend. Both were underage, though the girlfriend has not been charged.
