Anthony Weiner admits he's facing Children's Services probe Gottlieb said that wouldn’t stop cops from getting involved.Police “have discretion about what to do” and “the fact that there is no complaint filed does not prevent the police from investigating.” He added that both the cops and ACS are mandated under state law to investigate "if there is any evidence that a child could be in jeopardy." Harriet Cohen, a seasoned matrimonial lawyer, said high school kids as a group are increasingly "extreme graphic" on the internet, indulging in "risque behavior at younger and younger ages" — and Weiner was "acting in the role of predator" with this stream of texts.Thirteen states defended the North Carolina law in legal papers as a weapon against the illicit use of social networking sites, which they said are used in one-third of Internet-related sex crimes resulting in arrest."There's a concern here for the safety of children," Ginsburg acknowledged, as some of her colleagues — notably Chief Justice John Roberts and Justices Anthony Kennedy and Stephen Breyer — searched for a more limited way in which states could protect victims without infringing on basic free speech rights.But they found it difficult to defend North Carolina's law, passed in 2008 as a way to add "virtual" neighborhoods to the physical locations — such as schools and playgrounds — from which sex offenders are barred.
