An Indiana Man Is Literally Suing His Parents For ‘Destroying’ His Massive And Expensive Porn Collection

We’ve all collected things at some point. Maybe you collected beanie babies or baseball cards. Maybe you still collect things like comic books or coffee mugs.

Maybe you collect such a massive amount of pornography that it takes up 12 moving boxes and upsets your parents. If you relate to that last one, then you’ll want to pay particular attention to this story.

An Indiana man, who has been anonymously dubbed “Charlie,” is suing his parents for throwing out his porn.

He is asking for $87,000 which includes nearly $29,000 in estimated value of the videos and damages.

Charlie had been living with his parents in Michigan in October of 2016 after going through a divorce. He was forced to leave in August of 2017 and moved to Indiana.

His parents claimed to have given him all his things, but Charlie noticed some of his stuff missing. When he asked about it, his father told him he destroyed all 12 boxes of porn, plus an additional two boxes of sex toys.

Obviously upset, Charlie is now suing his parents over their destruction of his property.

Maybe the collection just rubbed them the wrong way?

Before you start sympathizing with Charlie or the parents, here are some more details.

Charlie apparently had a reputation. He had been kicked out of both high school and college for selling porn to other students.

After these incidents, Charlie’s father allegedly told him,

“I also warned you at that time if I ever found pornography in my house again, I would destroy it.”

Which, you know, fair warning.

Additionally, when Charlie was forced to move out in August 2017, it was after police were called to the house over a “domestic situation.”

On the other hand, Charlie had spent years assembling his collection. He had enough to send the police 44 emails’ worth of movie titles he says were destroyed.

He claims many were out of print, or as he put it,

“Not Just Out of Print. But the entire studio making it dissolved, and that was 20 years ago.”

Meaning some of the videos might have been one of a kind.

You know what? It’s kind of understandable.

Upon his initial filing of the police report, the prosecutors declined to press charges.

After emailing the police with more information, the prosecutor’s office once again declined to file charges.

Law enforcement having failed him, Charlie is now suing his parents to try and get back some kind of compensation for his items.

It seems like all of this could have been avoided if Charlie had just stuck with internet porn like everyone else.
