Used screenshots to keep pictures through photo-sharing app that makes them disappear

A group of teenagers in Canada allegedly deceived girls into sending them lewd pictures through the photo-sharing application SnapChat and distributed them at school, police said.

Ten boys, ages 13 to 15, were detained by police in Laval, Quebec, on Thursday, CTV Montreal reports. Police say they coerced or tricked seven girls into posing for photographs that were then distributed at the school. Users of SnapChat can send photos that automatically disappear after a few seconds, but the boys captured the images with screenshots.

It’s unclear to what extent the images were distributed beyond the school. CTV reports that dozens of officers, including a special unit of 20 investigators, had been on the case leading up to Thursday’s bust.

The article describes the photos as Lewd,..not just nude.  By definition this wold probably mean spread legs with the genitals exposed,..and like many others,...I want to know how one gets "tricked" into that.  They did it full well knowing what they were doing,..but when they were exposed (no pun intended) to people who weren't the intended audience they were "tricked".  I have to agree,..they deserve it,..they are not victims.

How does one coerce or trick a girl into posing for and sending him lewd photographs?

Er, um, I was just kidnapped by Al-Queda and, um, they  need one more picture of a young virgin to hit that 72 virgins mark.


Uh, page 73 is missing from my biology book, and er, um, can you send me a pic of your biological part so I can finish my term paper so I don't fail? My parents will hit me if I fail.

California has just enacted a new transgender bathroom bill and I'm not quite sure which gender I am, sooooo, can you send my a picture of your, you know, so I can compare it to mine. Uh, make it a close-up and point to it in the pic.

I'm sorry, how do boys "deceive" girls into sending nude pictures? Do they tell the girl, "that's alright, your camera isn't working. We can't see a thing" or are the girls unaware that they are nude? The girls are at least as complicit at the boys - but in America, unwritten law #1 is "its always the man's fault!"

I really don't see what is wrong with girls sending nude photos of themselves to guys. I don't think the girls who do this are stupid, and I don't think the guys who look at the pictures are criminals. I think they are all just being human. I think Americans are hypocritical, Victorian, Puritanical prudes.  We have the morals police here, just like Afghanistan has the Taliban, and Iran has the Revolutionary guards. 


The problem is parents, nature, and evolution do see young adults the same way. Parents want to keep their children innocent, naive, and asexual for as long as possible. While nature and evolution programed humans to become sexually active at 13. 


For hundreds of thousands of years, a 13 year-old male was considered a man.  Today we have this extended adolescence where humans are never considered adults. If humans waited to have sex till they were emotionally ready for it the human race would go extinct.  Humans are never emotionally ready for sex. 


Each human matures at a different rate. There are humans in their 40s who are still children. And there are young adults in their teens who are more responsible than most adults.

Have u noticed it is always the boys or men at  fault mostly. Socity has taken the beauty of nudity and turned it into a means of intrapment. It is ok on TV, in books, etc, but not let it get out u are local for the law may be knocking at your door. Police use girls for intrapment, they say kids can not speak for themselves due to age but yet put them on TV as being smart and even have a show called ( are u smarter than a 6rh grader). U take a chance when u punish your kid, do not let the neighbors see u or it may be jail time. That little girl u say can not speak for herself can call rape and u are marked for life. 

The boys were certainly out of line with what they did, not for the photos for the girls agreeded but to distribute them was wrong and they should be punished for that and made to appologize to the parties in question.

Nudest are the cream of the crop in socity. They have their place to enjoy and feel free and not threatened. The body is a thing of beauty, beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

"Nabokov's Prophecy: Youth Predators and the Rise of Social Media Networks"

Dr A Chatto, 2009

from the introduction:

"This is a soon to be perennial tragedy unfolding before your eyes in every country in the world. Face to face with our own denials, we respond with malice and aggression, with violence and legality, and the target is our own children."

"Not one person with a search engine can ignore this problem. There are no proactive or positive discussions about what to do, there is ostrich behavior and there is attack. While we flail around deciding what to do, young lives are destroyed every day, every hour."

p. 9

"We have to decide, is the definition of mental illness a democratic process? It appears that most people in western society are actively mentally ill in this respect. This illness is claiming lives, fortunes, the sanity of mankind, and ultimately our world."

from conclusions:

"One of the key problems here is we seem to be incapable of realizing that virtual activity, and virtual crimes are not real. We seem incapable of separating violent and reflexive responses in our nervous systems, and subsequent ideological and social organization to stimuli that are in logical reality simply information on a screen. Even the pseudorationale for this implies a complete inflexibility of thought processes, an inability to repattern our own information structures ourselves after being exposed to external information. With the exception of pre-imprint states in early childhood, this is questionable. Simulated activity and references are seen as hostile, threatening aggression rather than pixels floating in space. The rabid moralists reaction to pornography, with violence and hysteria, is an example.

In a healthy society the virtual aggressors are seen as training wheels for real interaction, warnings, training etc. This is the response in most educated Scandinavian communities. These are the offenses that should be ticketed, virtual crimes should be treated like moving violations. Instead we dedicate billions of dollars and tens of thousands of man-hours to fill jails with people who haven't done anything except click around on the screen and type in words. a single stroke of the legislative pen can in any Western society suddenly fill all the jails with the denizens of chat rooms. There may be no escape from this literal minded flatland as long as we remain ignorant of how our mind works with symbols and references in societal interactions."

why are the guys getting in trouble? it's the stupid girls' fault they even sent any pictures like that. seriously if you don't think your nude photos are going to go on the internet you're stupid as f*** and deserve it no matter what age.

i agree with melanie. it's impossible to protect your children ALL THE TIME. kids are gonna fall and get hurt. it's our job to pick em up, brushem off, and be like "well don't you feel silly?" . plus, this is one of those situations you can't really prepare for. even if you tell your kid "no taking nudie pics." hormones override any sense of reason. seriously, hormones make you do some dumb, dumb stuff.

How do you trick someone into sending a salacious nude photo of yourself? Biased reporting?

Thank you Robert. Victim blaming is a dreadful thing, absolutely atrocious. A term which should never be brandished around with aplomb, which sadly seems to have been the case here. Stupidity on the part of the girls seems a little harsh in this case though. I doubt it was the case, craving approval seems more likely and if so these girls need to learn they are more than the sum of their physical flesh.

Abbey - what were they a victim of exactly apart from their own stupidity? What you are doing is belittling actual victims.

It's not a boy vs girl blame game. A person took advantage of someone trust and use it to hurt the victim . It doesn't matter if it's a Con artist taking advantage of the elderly person who should know better after a lifetime of experience or in this case of using sexual images without consent. Last I check that was distributing porn. Stop victim blaming.

uhm probably because they were raised in a patriarchal society where the only way they are taught to realize their worth is through their sexuality.... i dont know just a thought

The teenage boys today are Aweful! And they really put a lot of pressure on the girls to show them pics! I can say this because I have a teenage daughter and I've seen the texts from these boys and if you have teenage boys and think they don't ask for those type of pics you are So Wrong! Boys are just as bad as the girls are!

@FrankShoreWhy are you talking about Americans? THis happened in Quebec. Unless we've added a 51st state, I'm pretty sure that's in Canada.

@Beth Martin Disagree strongly!  Montreal is simply too close to the American Border!  They should move it further away !!!

Canada is not a patriarchal society. And girls have plenty of ways to realize their worth besides sex. Stop exaggerating wildly.

@Taiese Clementine and maybe its just a case of  bad decision on some young kids part. plenty of blame to go around here

You should report them to the police and the FBI since they are soliciting your daughter to do an illegal activity under state and federal laws. Solicitation to do such an act is a crime in itself.

@LukeRobson@AddieC If someone snapped a picture of you on the toilet and posted it here and emailed it to everyone at your workplace, would that be real or not real to you?

@DianaMaras @JohnnyFever Just remember, if you can't put up a real argument with the guy, make fun of his penis/sex life that you know nothing about.  That'll show him.
