Livid parents in Texas were told no crime had been committed by the creator of a homosexual Facebook page who used images of their children to arouse men.
Kerry Williams of Bellville, Texas, was shocked to find out a man surreptitiously took pictures of her teenage son and then posted them on a Facebook page titled, “Beautiful Boys Around the World.”
“I’m very mad. It’s not OK with me at all,” Williams told KHOU 11 News on Thursday.
The station’s investigation into the site revealed multiple pictures of minors.
“I remember hearing the shutter, and I looked over and he had the camera pointed right at me,” said Williams’ son, Brett Johnson. “This is crazy. It’s kind of weird,” said the 19-year-old.
The Austin County Sheriff’s Office told the station that “Beautiful Boys Around the World” was disturbing, but not criminal.
“You should not be taking pictures of anyone’s child, especially not posting them on an obviously gay website where men go to ogle boys,” said Tommy Johnson, the teenager’s father.
The administrator of “Beautiful Boys Around the World” refused to give the CBS affiliate comment for its story on Thursday, but the page went dark before the end of the night.
