This guy sounds like the guy that tried to take a kid from the Livermore Valley Tennis Club. He's obviously lurking for a victim:

Maybe I should have explained myself better. When I asked where is the line drawn to make it a crime for kids I didn't mean just this. I read somewhere the other day an 8year old is being proscuted for murder. I honestly don't think they undestand what the do at 8. (Heck I just celebrated my 21st bday for the 26th time and sometimes I don't even know what I am doing.) Even this child in the article 10/11 year old, do you really think they know what sexual harrassment is? I don't know maybe it is just me.

Kinda a violation of someones civil rights to prosecute them for thinking they may "in the future" commit a crime.

We're a re-active society not a pro-active one and until that changes, little Johnny's going to have to get caught with his hand in the "cookie" jar before he's prosecuted.

This one kind of has me going both ways. In a way I can understand that maybe the child really doesn't understand what sexual harrassment is because of their age, but then again where is he/she learning it? When do they draw the line on when it is and isn't a crime with kids?

A little explanation,



Kids don't always learn stuff from someone else. Sometimes they discover it on their own. And there is no specific age for deciding what is and is not a crime for a juvenile. It's depending upon the gravity of the act and the mental maturity of the individual involved. And contrary to popular belief, sexual harassment is NOT a crime. Sexual battery and sexual assault are. Your boss can't be prosecuted for telling you to sleep with him to get your promotion. But he can be sued.
