Charging Adolescents as Sexters and Cyberbullys--the Consequences.

by George Hook on 11/18/14

Warren Township High School freshmen are charged under the Illinois Criminal Code with sexting and cyberbullying, as well as the female whose exposed chest was the source of the child pornography, since apparently, though a minor too, she did the selfie and consented to the sexting (the cyberbulling apparently being based solely on her minority and inability therefor to give meaningful consent, and ignoring that the "perps" were also minors—all in favor of disingenuous prosecution, as usual, albeit State instead of Federal for now.  (But see "Worse than Pornography," pp. 122-134, Marking Time, available in paperback and kindle (including download to your computer) at 

[http://www.amazon.com/Marking-Time-George-Clive-Hook/dp/146356046X

as well as from all other major booksellers.) If the parents gave knowing consent, they would be aiders and abettors to the "crime."  Possibly, the parents' lack of supervision or negligence could yet net them in the web of criminal injustice.  Ludicrous as this seems, the least rational analysis shows it is even worse.  The same act criminal among minors is not criminal among adults.  This is age discrimination, but constitutional if it is deemed by our august justices to have a rational basis.  Witness all those disgusting adult porno sites protected by 1st Amendment free speech.   What about the freshman males distributing their bared chests over the internet?  Not child pornography!  The female's—child pornography!  Is this not unconstitutional sex discrimination?  Some future case will likely so hold, but for now such distinctions may be deemed rational.  The local police are quoted in the local media: "Instruct children to report any explicit photos they receive on their cell phone to their parent, teacher, school counselor, pastor, or other trusted adult."  What self-respecting kid would do this?  Is it not 'snitching,' the worst breach of camaraderie? "Under no circumstances should they forward an explicit message to someone else." Does this admonition include the very persons to whom they are 'snitching?'  "They should not delete the message in the event law enforcement becomes involved."  Is this saying that doing what any rational person who objects to porno would do will constitute the crime of obstructing justice? "Parents should consider monitoring and spot checking their children's phone for harmful material."  Is this mere Parenting or 1984 style Big Brotherhood?   Following this advice of the local police may have dire life-long adverse consequences, witness  Marking Time, which also exposes how hypocritical, indeed, insanely so, are our pornography prohibitions and penalties.

HEADLINE NEWS--Protesting across the Nation against the Ferguson Grand Jury’s Decision not to indict Whitie Wilson, Arms Ups (mostly Whites) added chokehold victim’s “I can’t breathe” to their repertoire following a New York Grand Jury’s Decision not to indict Whitie Pantaleo, both Whities having acted in the line of duty as police officers; Wilson to prevent his gun being taken in Robber Brown’s assault; Pantaleo while enforcing arrest against cigarette tax scuff law Garner, whose constant hawking before their taxed and licenced shops caused the owners’ snitching.  Given the failure to purpose of the Missouri Prosecutor, the New York Prosecutor did not attempt to demonstrate the bona fides of his Grand Jury’s decision with like disclosures of extensive documentation and deliberation.  Garner’s wife has been commended for publicly stating that his “unjustified murder” was not “a black and white thing,” but rather his constant misbehavior under the State cigarette tax stamp law.  Doubtless, no one believes that death is an appropriate punishment for such a violation, constant or not, and only the racially biased would believe that Pantaleo could have intended to impose any such punishment upon Garner’s arrest, but cigarette tax stamp laws are taken very seriously, even by the Fed, for which read the exciting tale of Rolemand Smokzem, who has his own chapter in Marking Time, pp.334-363, with dire consequences, real and potential.  An actual example of such irrational racial bias was demonstrated by Ismaaiyl Brinsley’s killing of two police officers and his arithmetically incorrect instagram immediately prior:  "I'm putting wings on pigs today. They take 1 of ours, let's take 2 of theirs, #Shootthepolice RIPErivGardner (sic) RIPMikeBrown.”  Heartening to see Sharpton and other Community Activists condemning this misguided response.  Too bad that they are unwilling to do the same for those who protest the decisions of  juries of their peers as to Zimmerman, Wilson, and Pantaleo.
