  1. That’s messed up. What is a minor doing on an app that explicitly prohibits minors? Catfishing? Bad motives? Hoping to sue SMHS and make a quick buck? It’s sad all around. But the saddest part is the culture of homophobia in SB. If guys could actually put a face pic on their profile on gay apps without fear, this wouldn’t have happened. As an SMHS alumnus and former student of award-winning teacher Mr. Bradley, this whole ordeal is whack. I hope the kid faces consequences more than just karma and getting banned from the app.

  2. The photos were of the adult suspect himself. This article does not say anything about him being depicted in an illegal sex act—where did you get that, Doulie? His alleged crime was that he sent the explicit photos to a minor. What is not clear is whether he knew the recipient was a minor. Was the social network site open to minors? This article doesn’t have enough info. I withhold judgement until I know more.
