        I happen to think that some parents would be willing if it could make a difference

        If the pictures are made public I don't think you will see any channel broadcast them on television, but they will be widely available on the Internet.

        One of the other comments regarding broadcasting these pictures made a good point. Regardless of what warning precedes them, some young children will see the pictures if they are televised. The pictures may make the children reluctant to go to school or effect their behavior at school.
        Putting them on the Internet makes the pictures easier to monitor, and fewer children will see them.
