School: 5-Year-Old Committed ‘Sexual Misconduct’ By Pulling Pants Down On Playground
CBS Las Vegas ^ | July 1, 2014

Posted on 07/02/2014 4:42:00 AM PDT by kingattax

SURPRISE, Ariz. (CBS Las Vegas) – A mother is upset after her 5-year-old son received detention for what his school is calling “sexual misconduct.”

Eric Lopez, a kindergartner at Ashton Ranch Elementary School, pulled his pants down on the playground this past spring. The child received detention and has a note within his permanent file at the school. At the time of the incident, his mother wasn’t notified nor did school officials inform her that her son signed a note in the assistant principal’s office.

“He did not know that he could ask for me,” Eric’s mother, Erica Martinez, told KTVK. “He’s 5.” Dysart Unified School District has a policy that states a parent does not have to be present for a disciplinary meeting unless the student requests his or her parent.

For the past two months, Martinez has been fighting to have the sexual misconduct label removed from her son’s file citing that her son’s actions were not sexual in any way. But the district has denied her appeal and the assistant superintendent is defending the school’s actions.

When my brother was two he stripped off all his clothes and hopped into a pool with the little girl down the street. Then (late 70’s) it was just funny, now he’d probably get arrested.

Five year old kids know nothing about sex, much less sexual misconduct. This is much-ado about nothing.

At age 5, being bullied, those kids will be compelled to submit by an overwhelming group. Then again, where was the teacher or other ADULT supervision during this time?

Those kids that taunted him should SIGN the Anti-Sexual Harassment paperwork for the verbal peer pressure they put on the 5 yr old. This boy was abused by his other classmates and this is how the school handles it???

Thumbs down for the public education system once more!

The Government schools are controlled by leftist and the higher the office the more leftward they lean.

Their power over your child is more than disturbing.

If you are a parent, Please remove your child from public (government) schools.

I agree it should be a nothing event but the school decided to elevate by noting his file with a sexual misconduct. That will follow him throughout his school life and perhaps into later life especially if he becomes a conservative politician and some enterprising Obama type liberal gets access it during an election.

No, it needs be expunged.

This shows the sick mind of government school “educators”. It is inconceivable to them that a five-year-old is not sexual. I guess his mistake was not taking his pants down with another boy.

The teachers are not there for the benefit of your children, nor are they there to protect their rights.

They are there to educate them in the ways and manners of obedience to politically correct dogma. Nothing more.

“Our school district uses consistent language for disciplinary infractions in order to provide clarity and track discipline data accurately,” assistant superintendent Jim Dean said in a written statement to KTVK.

Assistant superintendent Jim Dean should be stripped of his pension and put in prison.

This is child abuse.

That was kinda my question. Did they have to explain to the young lad what sexual misconduct is, or did they just go straight to the signing away of rights...

SURPRISE, Ariz shouldn’t be shocked that this is what it has come to.

When I was a kid (back in the far away time called the 80s), everyone would have said “ewwwww”. The girls would have told the playground monitor, and she would have yelled for him to knock it off. or made him sit by the door until recess was over.

Yes, that's true, much ado about stuff kids have always done. Of course, once the libs get their way, sex education will begin as soon as the child can talk and they'll be fully versed in heterosexual and homosexual se, S & M, the whole nine yards. Gotta fight the power.

So we now live in a country where a 5 year old can sign away his rights and in effect, plead guilty to sexual misconduct?

Of course...They will be taught that anything that feels good is cool, and that the sex of the partner does not matter.

This is what you get when you have hyperventilating liberals who can not distinguish between a big and a small problem.
A 5yo can not be held legally responsible.
This is when you TALK to the kid and explain to him what proper conduct is and then the case should be closed.

I have no idea how kids of today are supposed to navigate between the "anything goes" attitude of some libs and "nothing goes" of others.
Parental push back will be key to get rid of this stupidity.

What is wrong with the world!?

That’s the crazy stuff little 5-year old boys do! My daughters babysat a bunch of little boys down the street, and that’s what one of the boys did, pull down his pants and shake his butt at them.

They thought it was hilarious. They didn’t call the cops.

I just... don’t know anymore. It’s crazy, just crazy out there.

1. The kid had a right to a lawyer.
2. Schools have gotten into the act now too, along with the government: make up frivilous laws and apply them unfairly and unpredictably. This keeps the folks down and teaches them to be sheep.

A 5 yr old is not legally able to sign anything. Damn, I hate to say it but they need to sue. These people are unreasonable so suing makes complete sense to me.

At 5, a good case can be made that he can’t READ what he signed, much less understand it.

My younger brother had a friend around his age when he was about 13. The kid was visiting and apparently had gone behind our garage to relieve himself. The area he had chosen was between the garage and a hedge that met the neighbor’s fence.

It was not a terribly tall hedge, but you would not have been able to see him from the neck down if you were in the neighboring yard...unless you were looking from the second floor, which, apparently the woman next door had been doing. She called my mother to complain that the kid was outside “exposing himself”!

My mother, who had already raised my older brothers, knew perfectly well what was going on, and she handled the call well, but she was just astounded at the fact that this woman would react this way because the grumpy neighbor had raised 4 children of her own, and 3 of them were boys.

In my childhood during the 50's, little girls used to pull their dresses up over their heads to show off their underpants. School administrators are by and large morons nowadays.

My daughter had talked with my granddaughter about cats and how they mark there territory by peeing on it. Later on, she was washing dishes and looked out the window to see the little girl up in a tree with her pants down, marking her territory.
