People are Crazy

Here's the story. Loving father kisses infant son on bellybutton, mother snaps a picture. Photo developer informs police. Father is jailed for 6 months pending trial, children are taken by CPS. Finally an expert is found who can say "there was no criminal intent in the photos," and charges are dropped.

Can we please get away from the "any personal contact between an adult and a child must be closely examined for sexual predation" mentality? What, I've helped my godson put on his shoes, so I've obviously got a foot fetish?

Trust me, I know bad things happen sometimes, but this is just nuts.

H/T: Fark.
