"Selfie With A Nude Taken In The Locker Room": What Could Go Wrong?
A West Allis Central high school senior took a "selfie" of himself in the locker room last month. In the background, another student was nude.
The picture was originally a mistake but the pair thought it was "funny" and decided to post in on Facebook. In other words, the guy who was caught being photographed in the buff was aware of the photo (after it was taken) and approved it being posted on the Internet.
As a general rule, cell phone cameras and locker rooms are not a good mix. Still, there does not appear to have been an effort to secretly photograph the one student while naked or to display the photo without the permission of the subject.
The student who took the photo was suspended from the basketball team for five games. He was also cited for disorderly conduct and fined $439.
Nothing happened to the other student.
Was this handled properly by the school and by local authorities? Should both students have been disciplined? Should neither?
