room 101

A crackdown in Texas. America – land of the free. And to guarantee that freedom, everyone has to be constantly watchful. Like the photo store clerk from Eckerd who dutifully reported a Peruvian-born couple’s lewd shots of their infants to the Richardson (Dallas/Texas suburbs) police. The photos showed the parents’ two infants bathing naked, lying together in bed with their mother (again naked) and the 1-year-old Rodrigo suckling his mother’s (naked) breast. So the couple was arrested — the maximum prison sentence for the crime in question being 20 years — and the children taken away. (verbatim k5) [metafilter.com]
