Teen Sexting: The Epidemic; The Legal Trouble with Naked Photos; Adults & Kids Explain Their POV



Racy texts, suggestive posing, and naked photos are all a part of the sexting hierarchy. But, when underage kids start snapping and sending salacious images of themselves, the seemingly harmless activity can set off a chain reaction that's beyond a teenager's control. In part one of this three-part docu-series we explore the sexting epidemic that's hitting schools and the serious repercussions it can have.




Some adolescents consider it a form of digital flirting. The legal system considers it a form of child pornography. In part two of the "Teen-Sexting Police" docu-series, we explore the legal implications of underage sexting and uncover why current laws make it complicated to distinguish between naïve teens sending scandalous selfies and serious physical and privacy violations.




From Scarlett Johansson to Anthony Weiner, adults in the public eye aren't strangers to sexting scandals. But for underage teens who use it as an innocuous form of communicating with the opposite sex, is it really that big of an issue? In the final part of this three-part docu-series, kids and adults share their opinions on whether sexting in schools really matters.

Tracing the steps of Jesus on Good Friday - video and video transcript



TRANSCRIPT
They're tracing the steps they believe Jesus walked - carrying the cross to where he was crucified more than 2,000 years ago. Thousands of devout Christians followed the cobblestone alleyways along the 
Via Dolorosa. It translates to "The Way of Sorrows." Every Easter, they flock to the Holy Land, commemorating the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, stopping to pray at the various stations of the Cross, and ending up here - to the open doors of The Church of the Holy Sepulchre. Many Christians believe it's the site of Christ's Crucifixion, burial and resurrection. The Easter holiday and Jewish Passovercoincide this year with Sunday being the day believers say Jesus rose from the dead.

VOCABULARY
Good Friday is the Friday before Easter Sunday, on which the Crucifixion of Jesus Christ is commemorated in the Christian Church. It is traditionally a day of fasting and penance.
