Six-year-old charged with sexual assault (Barf Alert)

The parents of a six-year-old American boy charged with sexual assault after being caught "playing doctor" are suing the prosecutors.

Their lawsuit, filed last week, accuses officials in Grant County, Wisconsin, of violating their own and their son's civil rights, the Chicago Tribune reports.

They are seeking $11.6 million in damages.

The boy — who reportedly has a developmental disability — was charged with first-degree sexual assault last year.

He had been discovered playing doctor with a five-year-old girl and her brother by the girl's mother.

The lawsuit alleges the investigation was biased because the girl's father is a well-known political figure in the area.

The suit names a district attorney, a social worker and a former sheriff.

I’m sorry, this is ridiculous. People don’t know anything anymore. Let’s put all the little children who “play doctor” in jail and then the world will be perfect.

MORONS!

I agree. It is normal for children to be “curious” about each other. I have heard of parents over reacting but this is off the charts. These idiot parents may have ruined this boy sexually for life.

FTA,The suit names a district attorney, a social worker and a former sheriff.

I suppose the social worker will take the fall. Her union is too pre-occupied getting gov. Walker thrown out of office.

The whole deal is to take all the meaning out of the words, “sexual assault” just as the meaning has been leached out of “rape” by the womyns’ movement.

Of COURSE this is ridiculous. It trivialized “sexual assault” on purpose. That way, when some college coach is accused of it, no one takes it seriously.

You don’t mean the boy’s parents do you?

Because I was thinking more along the lines of idiot prosecutors.

I am not a lawyer, a shrink, or child development specialist but here is the way I see it:
A 6 year old is incapable of the crime of sexual assault since he has no way to form intent, since he has no clue what it is in the first place. But that is just this layman’s opinion.

Exactly! Just ask Herman Cain. Like the boy who cried wolf, what happens when someone who truly WAS sexaually assaulted comes forward?

"discovered playing doctor with a five-year-old girl and her brother by the girl's mother"

If the law was applied fairly, and they were all three playing "together" - then why weren't all three of them charged? Add the mitigating factor that this child was handicapped, and the other two were not; Why is he he more culpable than the two children with their full facilities? Hmmmmm - makes you wonder doesn't it.

Not sure about your Herman Cain reference, but otherwise, I’m in agreement.

AFAIC, Herman Cain has been falsely accused.

On this one we will agree.

The same with exposure and sex charges against college kids who pee in the backyard when the bathrooms are all taken.

When my lovely daughter was around that age she asked us why her Black, Asian and Latino freinds looked different, does that make her a racist? It's no different than when a kid asks where babies come from. You simply EXPLAIN these things to them in an objective, age appropriate way. Leave the authorities and social workers out of it, they have their hands full investigating REAL cases.

ROFL! We bought our country house way in the boonies, specifically because my hubby said he wanted to be able to pee off the deck in the morning.

“You don’t mean the boy’s parents do you?”

From the article:
“He had been discovered playing doctor with a five-year-old girl and her brother by the girl’s mother.”

Yes I mean the idiot mother who came upon the situation and did not handle it correctly. The idiot mother should have told them to stop, that this is not what “good children do” and sent the boy home. The idiot mother then should have called the boy’s mother and told her what happened and let the boy’s mother deal with it.

The only time I got to play doctor was in the 2nd grade when my friend’s 3rd grade sister showed us where she could hide a marble. There was an explosion of laughter as we high-tailed out of there grossed out.

Reminds me of a recent Freeper post, the Army is warning our soldiers not to “water the flowers” while facing towards Mecca, geo coordinates 21° 25’ 36” North, 39° 49’ 34” East, lest they be seen as committing an offensive act!

A six year old, especially if he has a developmental disability, isn’t truly capable of committing sexual assault. Even remanding him to juvenile authorities would be an overkill. The District Attorney,social worker and Sheriff involved deserve to be sued...it was totally asinine to to bring charges in this case.

Because he’s a six year old, developmentally delayed child, who has been branded for possibly a life time for being curious about girls.

If they only allowed 6 year old boys to marry this wouldn’t happen.

Thankk you. I'm having Clarence Thomas flashbacks. Some people just can't stand to see a black conservative succeed.
