Editor's Note: Thursday night’s AC360° story about the couple whose children were taken from them following bathtub photos that were labeled as child porn drew angry and emotional response from viewers. Viewers were quick to point out many things about the wrongful charges in this situation, including the damage that it brings to children to be taken from their homes and family. We also heard for viewers regarding the interview with Senator McCain, and the upcoming interview with former president Bill Clinton. Read some of what we heard below. Do you have something to add? If so we’d love to hear from you:
There are many ways to damage a child. Certainly true child pornography is one. But those of you who are parents can only imagine the trauma to a child to be taken from the parents, with no contact for a month! Protecting our children is important, but emotional trauma must also be recognized. Thank you for reporting on this serious issue
Right after tonight’s story on the couple losing their children because of bath time pictures, there was a Wal-Mart commercial where parents were drying their children after a bath. I had to laugh out loud. No difference in parent’s pictures and Wal-Mart ad.
Excellent interview with Senator McCain. For tomorrow the interview with former President Clinton should be interesting too. It's great to see Anderson Cooper interviewing people so important to the story.
Anderson; Wow! That quote from John McCain was powerful and deep. Thanks for finding it and bringing it to us in the way you did with John himself present…that particular quote also shows your support and respect for our troops in war service. Your time with them has never been in vain. I, like you, appreciate their sacrifice and service.
