So-called “Hustler” bill wins final approval.

The Georgia General Assembly gave final approval late Thursday to  legislation that  would exempt from the Open Records Act any crime-scene photos showing nude or dismembered bodies. The Senate agreed 48-0 to the House amendment for final passage at 11:14 p.m. Thursday.

The bill was prompted by the murder of graduate student Meredith Emerson and a request by a reporter for Hustler magazine for gruesome crime-scene photos. It would not have protected the release of the Emerson photos, but ones in future cases, its sponsor said.

The reporter ultimately dropped the request.

It is very interesting for me to read that blog. Thanx for it. I like such themes and anything that is connected to them. I definitely want to read a bit more on that site soon. BTW, pretty nice design you have at that blog, but what do you think about changing it from time to time?
