So I know of someone who has child pornography on a school issued laptop. He is 18, but supposedly has pictures (that he got from local area girls) about as young as 8th grade. I have already left a tip to the police, and the situation is being worked on. However, some people who know about what I've done say that I am not doing the right thing because he came from a very messed up childhood and that this will ruin any chance of him ever being able to do anything.
Anyone have any advice they could give me in order to deal with my conflicting knowledge of right and wrong?
Well the thing is he isn't just keeping these pics to himself either. I learned about this whole ordeal when he was practically showing the basketball team on the way back from a game
"Practically" showing the basketball team? You do seem to be convincing yourself this is worse than it is. Think about what you're doing - you're enforcing your morals on someone else because the government says you can. Personally I don't see a world of difference between 8th graders having their nudies shared, and 18 year old girls. But I guess one of them is legal.
