The witch hunts continue

From the Dallas Observer, another story of a mother (and father) who've lost their kids to an overzealous photo development employee and CPS.

Jacqueline Mercado, a 33-year-old Peruvian immigrant, took a few photos of her young children at bath time. A week later, Richardson police were rummaging through her house for kiddie porn, and a state child welfare worker came to take her kids away.

and just for the record: Not child porn.

Unfortunately the oversensitive CPS Social Workers, Cops, DA. etc.. involved are obviously sexually repressed perverts with some real issues regarding breasts and casual nudity. They should be the ones needing some counseling.

My Dad has pics of me naked in the tub with a future Playboy centerfold... when we were both 3 or 4.. that would do it as well..
