Police: Teen girls' Facebook photos on porn site

The FBI can TAKEDOWN sites anywhere in the world, BUT, not this one?
2-17-2012 Massachusetts:

CHARLTON, Massachusetts (AP) – The FBI and Massachusetts police are trying to figure out who "hijacked" Facebook photos of teenage girls from more than a dozen high schools in the state and posted them on a website police say features child pornography.

Authorities on Thursday described the site as an anonymous bulletin board with links to pornographic content and photos of students from all 50 U.S. states.

The Massachusetts link displayed pictures of 17 teenage girls from Bay Path Regional Vocational Technical High School in Charlton and others from schools around the state, officials said.

The photos of the fully-clothed girls contained information that could be used to identify the teens, including town and school signs, Charlton Police Chief James Pervier said.

The site is hosted in Ohio but its servers are in eastern Europe — outside local and federal authority, Charlton Police Lt. Carl Ekman said.

FBI Special Agent in Charge Richard DesLauriers said the agency was reviewing the matter to determine whether any laws were violated, including privacy and anti-pornography laws.

Boston FBI spokesman Greg Comcowich said the site was running Thursday. He would not discuss any agency actions taken in its review. ..Source.. by USA Today
