I was going to say I could not believe this when I read it, but there is nothing Virginia pro9secutors will not stoop to.

Follow the link.  For a quick summary:

Allegedly, a 17-year-old boy sent a video of his penis to his 15-year-old girlfriend after she had sent him a naked picture.  The police and prosecutors decided to charge him  with 2 felonies, receiving and producing child porn (his video and the girls picture).  The girl was not charged.  When he refused to plead guilty, they got a search warrant from a local Magistrate (note; Virginia Magistrates are not lawyers and tend to be rubber stamps for the police) to take the boy to a hospital to take a picture of picture of his erect penis to compare to the video.  To do this he would have to receive an injection DIRECTY into his penis to force an erection.  So not only are they creating child-porn, they are doing so in a painful, humiliating manner akin to torture.  (They also claimed they would compare the images by computer, but as an attorney and professor of criminal justice, I have never heard of penis-recognition software.)

Follow the link.  UN-believable what police and prosecutors can get away with.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
