Teens molesting each other  
I don’t have numbers on this, but it seems that the more criminal an administration is, the more it cracks down on sexndope. The Trump Mob is trying to bring back the worst of the War on Some Drugs, and now we are going to be protected from teen sexting,

Thanx to nancylebov

It looks like this is making a bad law worse rather than something new. Still worth campaigning against, but the old bad law needs to be addressed, too.

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."

How is it not an egregious violation of the First Amendment to prosecute consensual conversation of ANY sort? It's absurd to claim that anyone is coerced into sexting, and there are already laws in place against adults masquerading as teens to lure minors into sexual activity, consensual or not.

Beyond that: the whole idea of imposing a maximum sentence of 15 years on a minor for ANY reason is monstrous. Might as well just shoot the kids in the head and be done with it; it would be less cruel. Not that some minors' crimes don't warrant long (or even life) sentences, but in those extremely rare cases, it's for a Judge to make that call.
