Reporting Mike Hellgren
BALTIMORE (WJZ)– Indecent exposure. Videos of Baltimore students having sex are spreading worldwide.WJZ first broke news of both sex scandals, and there are two police investigations underway. The incidents are provoking strong opinions online.
Mike Hellgren has new insight into the controversy.
Police say rumors of arrests after an incident involving Frederick Douglass High students– which WJZ was first to report– where a girl says she was recorded without her knowledge, are false, although they are still investigating.
And people just can’t stop talking about that viral video posted on YouTube, Facebook and Twitter.
“To me the whole thing is so totally repulsive, and I wouldn’t do that for anyone. I just wouldn’t,” said one woman on YouTube.
“It’s just that hers is caught in public, in school, which is like a major, major, major, major problem for me,” said a man on YouTube.
“You guys need to cut it out and leave her alone. She did it. It’s been spreading. You’ve seen it. Oh, well,” said a woman on YouTube.
Although it’s considered child pornography, millions of people have watched the video around the world.
“I don’t think this little girl should have did what she did, but she did it,” said a woman on YouTube. “I don’t think this little boy should have got what he got, but he got it, and now what are we going to do about it?”
The child’s devastated father spoke exclusively to WJZ and said his daughter had to transfer to another school.
“It hurts a lot of people– not just her, not just her reputation but also her family,” he said.
And there’s an ongoing investigation in Baltimore County, where police have charged three young people with having sex in the auditorium at Milford Mill Academy during class. Detectives believe the encounter was taped and shared.
“If they’re doing this kind of behavior, I think these are children in need of treatment or help in some manner, shape or form,” child psychologist Dr. James Dasinger said.
It’s unclear at this time if the students involved have received any punishment from their schools.
The students in the Milford Mill case are charged with indecent exposure and performing a perverted sex act.
