Police in France are taking 'protecting kids' to levels of insanity.
According to The Verge, parents were told images could jeopardize the privacy and security of their kids.
Authorities also cited social or psychological problems children could face later on in life.
French internet law expert Éric Delcroix claimed that parents could face future lawsuits from their children for violating their privacy.
As The Verge points out, under French law, anyone convicted of publishing and distributing images of another person without their consent can face up to one year in prison and a fine of €45,000.
France's national gendarmerie wrote on Facebook that “You can all be proud moms and dads to your magnificent children, but be careful.” The post continued, “We remind you that posting photos of your kids to Facebook is not without danger.”
What do you think? Is France taking things to the extreme?
