Turning Kids Into Sex Offenders

by John Stossel - October 17th, 2007 -

Imagine how DeMarcus Blackwell felt when he was told that his son Chris had engaged in "sexual contact and/or sexual harassment" at school. School officials in Waco, Texas, said Chris rubbed his face in the chest of a female teachers' aide.

Well, before you can imagine this father's reaction, you need to know one other fact: His son was 4 years old when the "sexual" incident occurred.

What got Chris into trouble was giving the aide a hug.

Today, we have an absolutely insane group of politically motivated liberal-progressive-socialist District Attorneys who are brain-washed in law school into irrational self righteous certainty of their beliefs. Nifong in Durham is a perfect example of this mindless group of powerful people who have abandoned common sense. They prosecute people for political correctness, not criminal guilt or innocence.

This article describes a situation where two young men, a 12 and a 13 year old, were prosecuted for "felony sex abuse". FELONY SEX ABUSE! The reality? They were playing a game called "Slap Butt Day", a new version of the ancient game of tag. The girls were playing the game voluntarily, and they too were slapping other players on the butt without regard for which gender they represented. The girls were not prosecuted because they are not white males, the politically correct targets of modern hate mongering by District Attorneys.

These two boys were kept in jail for SIX DAYS before their parents could get them out on bail. During this time, jail officials strip searched the kids repeatedly, every time the parents and their lawyers came in to talk with the kids. Strip searched them like violent criminals. It took six months to get charges dismissed even after all the girls signed affidavits describing what really happened and asking the boys not be prosecuted.

The District Attorney even tried to convict the boys of "dry humping" the girls. The truth on this one? They never touched the girls but simply jumped up and down in front of them to act stupid. It was not intended as a sex act . . . . and anyway, they never touched.

Our criminal justice system has passed the point where these can be considered isolated incidents and mistakes. Our system has become a major source of tyranny. Where are our judges? When are they going to rein in these out of control D.A.s?

My expectation is they don't even think this tyranny is a problem. Welcome to the rule of judges.
