Parents sue Walmart over kids' bath pictures|
Your link is broken! you might want to check the HTML. :)
How is being angry at being falsely accused of sexual abuse being "oversensitive"? I'd do the same thing in their position.
I wouldn't turn someone in over naked kid pics in a bath, we have all had naked pics in a bath when we were little, or somewhere else, on a blanket or something else that's cute. I think they overreacted, personally!
Oh I see, you were calling the WalMart employees oversensitive, not the parents. Sorry for the confusion!
Oh, yeah the photo person who turned them in in particular :D
The person who turned them in reminds me of a comedy skit, I think from Kids In The Hall, where this inkblot artist is showing his work to this professor guy, telling him that inkblots aren't anything in particular, you see what you want to see and the like, and the professor guy gets angrier and angrier at each one for being "naked little boys!" even to the point where inkblots that were obviously made to look like butterflies or flowers or whatever get him mad about it being naked little boys, and he finally confiscates them. When the guy leaves, the professor is admiring the inkblots.
I remember back in high school my friend Brad (who aspired to be a photographer then , now movie director)and I went to some random bitchin' show and he took in a roll of film to the local grocery store that he (possibly later) worked at to get the film developed. When it's done, he picks it up, goes home, opens the package, everything is cool, right?
WRONG. Brad's photos aren't in there. Instead there is a bunch of photos of a Mexican family (adults, young adults, and small children) all taking turns jumping in a swimming pool. Totally nude. And then said totally nude family starts taking group shots. Like "Hey, everyone, get together, you stand in a line here, you stand in a line here, ok, perfect, now face the camera".
Needless to say, we were pretty pissed off and the photos we were supposed to get were really good live performance shots so he went back to store and demanded to know wtf was going and where his photos were. Apparently, the other family came to claim their photos and ended up taking Brad's, which were never seen again. The store also "confiscated" the Hispanic pool party photos for whatever reason (probably to contact CPS because, hey, that shit was weird), not that Brad wanted to keep them, anyway.
