Having said that, I have to add that yes, it is ridiculous to consider what he's done a a sexual offence as the intent was not sexual arousal or anything sexual related in my opinion. And so the principal exagerated.
However, as a principal he couldn't have taken the "boys will be boys route" cause as that would've worked as a bad incentive.
(If this boy can be "a boy", than other boys couls be "boys"....)
And again, even if he did exagerate, the truth is I can hardly blame him, as he did not mention the kid's name, and I think that, in his own logic, he thought he was giving the kid some needed though love (and of course at the same time, trying to clean the school's name). That the kid had already too many psychological troubles for that love to possibly have been too though, he couldn't have imagined.

^I know mate,fucking Sickening.
^You know, I had a post written out...
But then I said, nope, don't feel like getting banned because of that guy. Don't know if reporting it will do anything, but I sure will try.
"Heads buried in the sand,
You are impotent..."
Just because it does not fit your opinion, it does not mean you oh-so offended posters have to get on your soap boxes and start whining.
I said nothing derogatory like "YAY! he killed himself"
Yes, he should have thought about it better. He broke the rules and did someting obviously punishable and killed himself to avoid getting punished. You did wrong so face the consequences. The law is the law and he deserved to be punished. Was the punishmed to be labled a sex offender way over the top and exxaggerated? Yes, it was. A lessor punishment would have sufficed. Oh well silly kid.
by all means conitnue to have a heart attack over my post.

The iran and gays thing is clearly ridiculous so I am not even going to go there. So what you are trying to say is the kid should not be punished because what.... he was childish and had zero capacity to think about the consequences regarding his actions?
and again let me copy and past this - Was the punishmed to be labled a sex offender way over the top and exxaggerated? Yes, it was. A lessor punishment would have sufficed. - because you all are so offended that you keep forgetting that part.
to label someone a sex offender because of streaking is dumb, just as dumb as being labeled one for peeing in a bush somewhere.
...but you already did go there. You said "THE LAW IS THE LAW AND HE SHOULD BE PUNISHED"....The iran and gays thing is clearly ridiculous so I am not even going to go there
...so what is it? The laws you like and don't think are ridiculous? Branding this kid a sex offender for life is insane. The law is insane. Your statement demonstrates a complete lack of empathy and depth of understanding.
...but according to you...the law is the law and he should be punished. .....part of the law includes being labeled a sex offender.to label someone a sex offender because of streaking is dumb, just as dumb as being labeled one for peeing in a bush somewhere.
Is this school a special school with its own religious/justice system?
The principal said 'There's the legal complications,' 'Public lewdness and court consequences outside of school with the legal system, as well as the school consequences that the school system has set up.'
YES he should be punished, even tho I think the punishment was over the top. I am not saying he shouldn't because I think the law is stupid. Get it right. Just because I think he deserves to be punished does not mean I cannot disagree with the level of punishment. It;s there so accept it or fight to change it. If anything had the kid not offed himself he probably would have been let off scotch free had enought ruckus been made about it. but we will never know now will we?
Ya know stopping and actually thinking, you are right I am showing lack of empathy or understanding. Suicide is such a touchy topic that I don't particuarly do well in. My issues with it, just hit too close to home.
As for the "crime" and the "punishment" and the "law"...I am going to take a page out of my life to illustrate the gray area and why empathy and understanding are essential....
It was 1979 and I was fucking this very sexy man over the course of a month or so. It was wicked hot...one time I pulled him up on the sink facing me and he wrapped his legs around me and put his arms around my neck and then I walked around and I was fucking him in the air while I was carrying him...definitely a top 20 fuck of my life. This isn't a random sexual memory...it is actually integral and important to illustrate who he was for the rest of the incident.
He would come in to see me right before I got off work and he was a man of few words and pretty much everyone noticed him because he was one of those smoking hot guys ....
....and so a month or so into it this other guy (who I didn't like at all which didn't help) came to me as he had seen us together and let me know that not only was he a cop...he was also undercover and had busted him for showing his penis to him in the bathroom and reaching for his hand. He was on track to being convicted and being considered a sexual deviant...this was before the registry...and everywhere he moved for the rest of his life he would have to register with the local police as a sex offender. It would have ruined his life before it even started...he was maybe 22 years old.
WELL....I had a thousand different thoughts...the first was that I didn't even know my fuck buddy was a police officer.... and a real moral dilemma on my hands because I did not want to become involved. I also didn't say anything to my fuck buddy initially and kinda cut him off because it was a turn off to me that he would entrap someone....even though they were technically "breaking the law" and he was technically hired to enforce it. I thought it was shady that he came into a gay bar and so many people saw him so for all he knew the guy approaching him in any bathroom might have seen him in there...and then there was the privacy thing for me. I felt what we had done had no place in court and it was a consensual act between the two of us. The guy did threaten to have his lawyer subpoena me too which pissed me off....
...and then one of the other bartenders took me to lunch one day to try and persuade me to "do the right thing". I listened...and I was not swayed much until he let me know what this would do to the guy who was arrested and how it would impact his life...and how he was contemplating ending his life because of it. I couldn't shake that...
...so....I decided on a course of action. I privately told my cop fuck buddy to figure out a way to recant...drop the charges...or I might be forced to come forward. It was a bluff on my part...or at least I thought it was. I am not sure what I would have done if it didn't work....but it DID work.
This was a case of the "law being the law and he should be punished" .... but the law was out of line and because of that the law would have destroyed this guy's life just for showing his penis in a restroom and reaching for the other guy who was entrapping him if for no other reason because he was in a gay bar enough times coming to meet me and the other guy thought he was gay and waiting for sex.
This is why I think saying the law is the law and he deserves to be punished is over the top. Life has a lot of gray areas...and this is definitely one of them...
If you agree the law is dumb then it was a pretty thoughtless and calloused thing to say "oh well, the law is the law and he should be punished."
he streaked and he was a kid. big deal.
the principal on the other hand going on the news and talking about it is an asshole. should be fired.
I am more than content to reply to you and your very insensitive post, "Oh Well"REALLY!!
"He should have thought better of it" REALLY!!
Dealt with any suicides up-front and personal,gosh wish when i look at the cadaver of a teen-suicide,i could say "oh well"."Silly kid"
You are so full of empathy and the dynamics of inter-personal psychology,hell,give up your job with the IRS and go train as a Samaritan.
Am sure you will be winning the "Arsehole" of the Month Award on a regular basis. "Oh well"."Silly Member".
You should have thought about that better, silly kid.
Most of the hysterics about nudity in the US stems from a religious movement geared with self modesty. Those uptight people clutching their pearls and screaming foul because the boy streaked and then uses the sledgehammer of the law to crack his nuts have surely won the moral phyrric victory and saved themselves from being besmirched by his act of wanton lewdness.
^SIR. Wanna get married?
