I seriously hate my mother's side of the family. Most of them are trash (not all of them though), and still talk about partying, getting drunk, and getting into it well into their older years.

Anyway, on my Facebook today, I see a post from one of my few boy cousins talking some serious trash about this one girl (I guess his ex's adult daughter??). I was mortified to have him as a friend on Facebook!! Then I read on their that the girls fiance has been caught multiple times with child porn and no one has done anything about it! He said he has even witnessed it. All of my other cousins were basically laughing at him and telling him to tell it as it is (this disgusted me more). So I posted on there that if the child porn stuff is true, he needs to report it as if he is caught knowing about it and doing nothing about it, that it can come back on him. So my other cousin who is a self righteous know it all (I think she is bipolar) basically said "Oh Lindsey!! Whatever!! I would never call the cops on you for knowing about child porn." ***?!?! So then she begins to say that I just don't know what good %^*& talking is and I don't have a sense of humor. Seriously?!?! So I basically reply back that I don't find child porn funny and it is sad that they do!

I am fuming right now because all of them are laughing at me like I am stupid for suggesting to report it!! My cousin (who originally posted it) said that he was not lying and it was all true, but he does not believe in calling the cops on people, only dealing with the problem himself. I am ashamed to have them for my family. I guess there is a reason why I only consider my dad's side of the family as my real family. I am tempted to take the names he posted on Facebook and call the cops myself!!

That is really disgusting!

Your mom's side of the family sounds like DH's mom's family. DH even smoked weed with his mom and lots of her family members as a teen. ***?

Is it child porn they've gotten from somewhere or made? Either way is disgusting, but I would almost think that if it's something they've gotten that I would just delete them from FB and try to ignore it. That's a giant $#!t storm to be getting into, but it would be worth it if they are making it. Tough call, but just my two cents...

They all still smoke weed into their 40s and 50s. My mother and I don't have a very good relationship because of it. I am trying to "accept" that she is a grown woman and can do whatever she wants to, but that does not change my opinion of her or her family.

He claims that the child porn was on his computer, and I am sure that they can look into people's hard drives because of it. I don't have much to go off of but a name on Facebook, but am going to see what the detectives can do.

That is disgusting! That is pretty much like my dad's side of the family, I barely talk to anyone on that side - a lot of them are alcoholics and drug addicts who can't seem to find help - I am not talking down about either one, because I know it is a disease, I have seen it first hand and have seen what happens when you do get help! I am just not into being around people who can't seem to see the harm they are doing to themselves and the ones around them - it's disgusting!

Are you sure he was being serious and not just trash talking about someone - I mean, it's gross either way, but if you are going to call the cops, I would be sure that it is a legit comment, then I would definitely call! ACtually, you might be able to report it through FB somehow...

On a side note.....

I just called the police department there (this is in an extremely small town in Arkansas), and the detective will not be in until tomorrow morning, but the dispatch said that this is something they will look into. So tomorrow morning I am going to call back bright and early to speak to a detective.

He swears up and down that it is true. I made sure to ask him about it.

Ugh! That's so sickening. And I hate when people just laugh at it and consider you a prude for being offended by it. Child porn is NOT something to joke about. And sadly, people who are into that stuff are hard to rehabilitate and thus they remain a danger to society. Not doing anything about it and just passively allowing it to happen is a crime in and of itself so the people who claim to know it is true and just choose to joke about it and look the other way are guilty and immoral themselves.

I'm sorry you're having to deal with that stuff from your family. On the bright side it is always nice to see when a good egg comes out of a dirty nest. Be glad you were blessed with higher intelligence and didn't get sucked into that lifestyle.

Sorry, lurking. But i would screen shot all of those facebook posts and call the authorities. Child Porn is not something to be taken lightly and is disgusting and disturbing.

ABSOLUTELY!! And I think calling was the right thing to do, even if they find it to be untrue, at least you know you did your part!!

Ditto that! Sorry you have to deal with this crap. We all have someone like this in our families I think.

I think you did the right thing Lindsay.
So sorry you have to deal with that and NEVER feel ashamed for doing the right thing.
If they are a bunch of sick weirdos, it's not your fault and you know better.
Child porn is a serious matter and whoever is even looking at that is contributing to that black market. So talk to the detective tomorrow and get screen shot of everything.

You so are doing the right thing, when I was reading your post, it was making me sick to my stomach--I cannot believe how sick people can be. You stick to your guns, you could be saving someones innocence.

Ugh, what a mess! I am glad you are reporting it, because that is definitely the right thing to do. I hope the fall-out isn't too terribly bad, but I know you will have the strength to deal with it! You go, girl!
