Video: Underage Girls Pics Posted in "Jailbait" Section of Reddit.com

Anderson Cooper recently reported (video below) on the “jailbait” section of the popular social media site Reddit.com, which reportedly has non-nude pictures of underage girls in their swimsuits and underwear.

Cooper said that the site was for adults and that users posted “creepy” comments such as "keep a teen off the streets, put her in your van."  Cooper said that Reddit.com does have rules about posting people's "personal information," but not for posting "stolen photographs" of underage girls.

Reddit.com general manager Eric Martin responded in a written statement: "We're a free speech site and the cost of that is there's stuff that's offensive on there. Once we start taking down some things we find offensive, then we're no longer a free speech site and no longer a platform for everyone."

CNN Senior Legal Analyst Jeffrey Toobin said the “jailbait” section of the site probably was not illegal, but could result in a civil lawsuit.
