Woodland police investigate cyberbullying where children’s genitals are exposed online

An email was sent to Douglass High School families in Woodland on Friday night warning parents of “many inappropriate Instagram accounts being created by students”. The email said the accounts “encourage students to take photos of other students during private acts, such as using the bathroom,” and went on to say that those photos were posted. Although the school did manage to remove a few accounts, the email said there were “too many and they were created too quickly to take them all down before inappropriate posts appeared.” Woodland Unified School District told KCRA 3 that it has reported at least eight Instagram accounts to date. Joanne Salmon said her 12-year-old son Loukas was the victim. On Friday, her 13-year-old son Leeland was shown photos of his brother’s school. He said the pictures showed his brother’s genitals. “I want them to be able to function in school and learn,” Salmon told KCRA 3. “Not having to worry about being videotaped in the bathroom.” The Woodland Police Department is investigating the cyberbullying incident. A department spokesman said a school officer received a report on Friday that a photo that may show the victim’s genitals could be posted on social media sites. At this point, police do not know who took the photo and posted it, or what actions might be taken. Salmon said another family contacted her, saying their child had been a victim of similar cyberbullying. Woodland Police would not say whether they consider this a case of child pornography at this time. If you know who is taking and posting these pictures, call the police.
