Well, Twitter is all a…..well, a twitter, over the new Netflix movies ‘Cuties’. This is a French film that’s a Sundance award winner with a female director. However, it’s also very, very provocative and is either attempting to make a point, or is child pornography. The outrage was swift and by some accounts, Netflix has lost billions. I watched the film so we can have a chat, break down my thoughts, and talk about the legal standards of child pornography. RESOURCESWhy 'Cancel Netflix' is trendingPetition asks Netflix to remove film that 'sexualizes' girlsNetflix's 'Cuties' Controversy, Explained Lawmakers Demand Federal Investigation Into Netflix Film 'Cuties' For Child Pornography EXCLUSIVE: GOP Lawmakers Call On Justice Department To Take Legal Action Against Netflix For Sexualizing Children Netflix shareholders lose $9 BILLION as it refuses to stop sexualising childrenCuties on Netflix is open pedophilia. #BoycottNetflixCitizen's Guide To US Federal Law On Child Pornographyhttps://twitter.com/Cythesuccubus/status/1304175620394491905?s=20https://twitter.com/GhostJim4/status/1303778528169689088?s=20https://twitter.com/GhostJim4/status/1303778934421680129?s=20https://www.forbes.com/sites/elanagross/2020/09/11/netflix-defends-cuties-as-social-commentary-against-sexualization-of-young-children/?fbclid=IwAR0s04nqT-GLqemLPPqQEoTayCkTsYvchI5KzvA-Ej-MR_L6hGgBhw0ohDc#5f6b726f7351https://www.justice.gov/criminal-ceos/citizens-guide-us-federal-law-child-pornographyIf you want me to cover a particular story or situation please contact the show at GetLegit@emilydbaker.com Come hang with me on social! I want to chat with you in the Get Legit Community Facebook Group !! If you need help with your business you can find my products at www.GetLegitShop.com and my legal consulting at www.EmilyDBaker.com

I hope that the most important thing that we take away from the Kenosha unrest is that making a decision about a situation in one or two sentences of a news headline is not the full picture. The media has been taking the Jacob Blake shooting and creating a narrative juxtaposing it to the Kyle Rittenhouse shooting.  When the facts of these two situations are evaluated they are not the same in many regards. They are the same in that they are both avoidable. First, both situations are still under investigation and developing. Kyle Rittenhouse is in custody with murder charges (among others) pending. Jacob Blake is in the hospital paralyzed and recovering from 7 gunshot wounds.  But let’s discuss the surrounding situations based on the information available. Jacob Blake has pending charges arising out of a sexual assault and domestic violence case. There seems to be a restraining order in relation to those charges. Jacob Blake showed up at the victims’ house, broke in, attempted to steal her car resulting in her calling the police. When the police showed up to arrest Jabob Blake with the outstanding warrant and apparently violated the restraining order. He then wouldn’t comply with the police was Tasered twice, and reached for a weapon whereupon he was shot. The circumstances surrounding this are avoidable. Kyle Rittenhouse at 17 decided to head into Kenosha, an already tense situation, with an AR15 that he wasn’t supposed to be carrying based on his age. He then stayed in the area late into the night, he wasn’t questioned about his weapon (though open carry laws mean that people were walking around legally carrying similar weapons), he kept moving with the crowds of protestors until there was a confrontation. What we know from the video is that a protester behind Kyle Rittenhouse fired a weapon and Kyle turned around and fired injuring a protestor. The crowd turned on Rittenhouse, he was knocked to the ground protestors attempted to disarm him and he killed two. He shouldn’t have had that weapon. He is too young to be trusted to make good decisions in a dangerous situation he put himself in. He made these decisions that ended the lives of two people, this doesn’t discount the decisions of the protestors who were attacking someone armed with an AR15 cause that seems like terrible decision making too. But the circumstances here were also avoidable. RESOURCES Police association: Jacob Blake physically struggled with officers before shooting  WALSH: Before You Honor Jacob Blake As A Martyr, Read The Criminal Complaint Against HimCriminal complaint for Jacob Blake says he was wanted for domestic abuse and sexual assault The day the games stopped: A timeline since Jacob Blake was shot in the backWisconsin AG Pushes Back On Criticism Of Investigation Into Jacob Blake Shooting The latest on Kenosha police shooting of Jacob BlakeRally supporting police draws scores to downtown Kenosha Kyle Rittenhouse’s Lawyers Release StatementPierce Bainbridge Engaged to Represent 17-Year Old Kyle Rittenhouse Wrongfully Charged with Murder After Acting in Self-Defense in Kenosha, WIAttorneys representing Kyle Rittenhouse say he was wrongfully charged after 'acting in self-defense'Lawyer:Illinois Teen Charged with Kenosha Shootings, Kyle Rittenhouse, A 'Scapegoat' Who May Fight Extradition Defense Attorney Commentary & Analysis 
The Britney Spears Conservatorship is the backdrop of the Free Britney movement….wait the #FreeBritney movement. Her fans have demanded that attention is turned to the over 12-year conservatorship that has been granted to Britney’s father Jamie Spears. The conservatorship was set to expire in August 2020 but was extended until February 2021 while the court asks for additional legal motions. Britney has recently spent time in a mental health facility which some argue was a tactical move by her father to keep the conservatorship going, or as necessary to support her in light of her fathers health struggles. There is a lot of behind the scenes that we don’t know here, because of the nature of the conservatorship. It’s meant to be private but is it time to transition to allowing Britney to have more freedom. To be able to choose if she wants to have another child, to get married, to drive her car. I completely understand why her fans are so concerned, I also think it’s time to have real conversations about taking the stigma away from mental health struggles, to examine what happens to celebrities in the US, and to question if cancel culture is making these issues worse. RESOURCES VIDEOSThe Sad Story of the #FreeBritney Movement: Britney needs us. Britney Spears’ Husband Supports Free Britney Free Britney: The Britney Spears ConservatorshipTop 10 Times Britney Spears Called for HelpBritney Spears Carpool KaraokeJamie Lynn Spears Addresses 'Free Britney'Britney Spears Will Never Be Okay AgainARTICLES Britney Spears Seeking Substantial Changes to ConservatorshipJamie Spears Asking to Temporarily Step Down as Britney's ConservatorBritney Spears' dad has asked to step down as her conservator for nowBritney Spears’ Pal Unearths Letter She Wrote About Conservatorship, K-FedBritney Spears Conservatorship to Remain As Is Until 2021Britney Spears' Conservatorship Extended to February 2021 – NBC ChicagoOTHER LINKSNeil Strauss | NY Times Bestselling Author & Transformational JournalistNeil Strauss Books If you want me to cover a particular story or situation please contact the show at GetLegit@emilydbaker.com Come hang with me on social! I want to chat with you in the Get Legit Community Facebook Group !! If you need help with your business you can find my products at www.GetLegitShop.com and my legal consulting at www.EmilyDBaker.com
