Disturbing situation
on Jun 1, 2006 at 10:02:06 pm

We have a disturbing situation in our community concerning a local "filmmaker". It seems this fellow has been taping cheerleaders at local high school football games. He edits the tapes, featuring the girls' breasts and freeze framing on high kicks, etc. Then he sells the tapes as

Criminal violation and civil right to privacy are not at all the same thing: maybe you need to take legal advice from a qualified California attorney on possible civil remedy for invasion of privacy.

If this is the case, you need to get a better sheriff. This is in blatant violation of numerous

I believe I read somewhere Texas recently passed a law specifically about this, and their standard is, how much, if any, game footage was also shot. If the original tapes contain the whole game, how the perv edits it later is his own business, but if all he's shot is the cheerleaders, then they can nab him as being there soley for "prurient interest".

I have to say, not to defend the perv, but cheerleading is not the same thing it used to be when I was a kid. Call me a prude. It has gotten to be very much more sexualized, in dress, in the moves and mannerisms, and the overall sentiments being put on display. it alternates between dizzying but wholesome athletic gymnastics and unwholesome pole dancing hootchy-koo. And I don't much care for this kind of NFL-level bump and grind stuff being foisted on nine year old girls. I know that's not universally the case, not all cheerleading is bad, etc. but as a dad of a nine year old girl, I worry.

Okay. Prude! Just kidding.

Um, where do you live again? Our state, dubbed "the Freakshow State" because of all of our nut job phychos and wingnut politicians has got to be the leader in all things distasteful, but our cheerleaders still wear the same old polyester-blens skirts, mildly form-fitting mid-drift tops and matching bloomers. Yes, the hips participate a LOT more than they did 15 years ago, but the girls don't seem to be aware of how much more sexed-up their routines actually are. Surely someone's mother would step in and tell them to stop dancing as if there were a pole next to them...because they'll be no tips.

I see your point extremely clealry, but because I wear something that looks good on me, does that make me a target for abuse? The guts of this issue are that the paerents should be more vocal and participate in their children's lives with a bit more vigor. If this is the world that our kids are inheriting, I think I'd rather go to Mars.

something smells here with the police saying there's nothing to be done.
Then why, every time I shoot for Discovery, Travel, HGTV, History, etc. do we have to get signed releases? And if the subject is a minor we also have to get parental release as well.
This perv is using these people's image without their permission. He's doing it on school property which is also going to be a no no.
Talk to a good lawyer and/or an investigative journo...
