Student threatened with sex offender status commits suicide
Daily Caller ^ | 10/13/2013 | Robby Soave

An Alabama high school student killed himself after he was threatened with severe legal consequences — including registration as a sex offender — because he went streaking at a football game.

The student, 15-year-old Christian Adamek, died from wounds he sustained while attempting to hang himself, according to The Daily Mail.

Adamek ran naked across the field at a September 27th football game between his school, Sparkman High School, and Grissom High School. The incident was recorded and put on Youtube, and many students remarked that the prank had made Adamek — already a popular student, according to reports — a “legend.”

Its not his law, he answered a question.

I understand the desire to find a villain, but lets put blame where blame belongs.

My stomach hurts. This should never have happened.

In the 70s it was the topic of a novelty song. Now it’s a criminal offense which can ruin a person’s life. But only if they’re not a member of the club.

What would happen to a bunch of boys going skinny-dipping these days? I can’t keep the new rules straight. Sodomites on public streets in genital-promoting attire-cool. A kid streaking as a prank-sex offender. NAMBLA-the next frontier for “freedom”. A man putting his hand on a grown woman’s shoulder-sexual offense in the workplace.

A friend of mine in California told me of a woman who lost her job working for the state because she called someone ‘Hon’ and some asswipe was ‘offended’ at the sexually demeaning remark.

He went on to say that there is something seriously wrong when calling someone ‘Hon’ is horribly offensive and cause to fire someone while no one cares if you call someone a f*ckface because that’s just a plain old insult.

Unreal.

Sex offender for streaking? Give me a break. This is LIBERAL INTOLERANCE RUN AMOK. The same people who teach kindergarteners about condoms fail to see the hypocrisy.

The school can't charge the kid with anything...wonder what he was being told by the juvenile officer.

There is a big difference between a pervert exposing themselves and a kid streaking or taking a leak in public; that the judicial process at times fails to see this is amazing.

A friend of mine told me she was abducted by aliens. I don’t believe her either...

The kid was mentally ill. It’s sad, but he is neither a hero nor a martyr.

I don't understand how kids of today are supposed to navigate between the "anything goes" and "nothing goes" extremes.

half the waitresses in baltimore would get fired if calling someone HON was a valid reason. and look at all the stupid things we did in college and beyond. the world truly is upside down.

Every other waitress would be fired. But I’m sure the infection will spread here before the commies are through.

I meant to say, every other waitress in the south would be fired.

I think that's the point of it all, Stalin's principle of "show me the man, I'll show you the crime". It's supposed to be impossible to navigate, the better to subjugate the slaves.

Here’s the case law that was cited in the termination review:

Looks to me you need to reconsider your assessment of your friend.

Unless you’re Roman Polanski or R Kelly.

I believe you may have overlooked one BJ Clinton.
