more on the baseless case against ting-yi oei

Here's a Washington Post editorial on the case against Virginia educator Ting-Yi Oei, the high school assistant principal who was trying to do the right thing, only to find himself subjected to baseless child pornography charges and an ensuing witch hunt that turned his life upside down and effectively ruined his reputation and career: A Nightmare in Loudoun.

In the age of "sexting" and ever-increasing concerns over the convergence of kids, technology and sexuality, it's understandable that authorities, parents and school administrators would want to be cautious and extra sensitive with anything resembling child pornography. That said, it's ridiculous, given the facts, why criminal charges were ever brought against Oei on the first place.
