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.

Welcome to Zero Tolerance idiocy and the effect of Good intentions gone horribly wrong, pretty much liberalville./..
Unless you’re Roman Polanski or R Kelly.
The principal seemed to be listing the possible consequences for such acts in response to reporters questions. He even seemed somewhat sympathetic to the kid, kids being kids and not always exercising the best judgement. I don’t think its fair to imply he was responsible for the kid’s suicide.
C’mon, this was stupidity on the part of the school.
The kid could have been charged as being a public nuisance.
“sex offender” is way, way overblown.
Did they actually charge or threaten to charge him? I watched the newscast, all I saw was the principal responding to a question from a reporter. If they did, then I agree with you.
If he had said he was gay, he would be a hero instead of a stupid dead kid.
Anything could be considered an affront to the power of ANY local bureaucrat and result in life-long inescapable consequence...........Welcome to Amerika
What a stupid, moronic thing to do. In front of kids too.
I don’t think it makes a difference. If a 15 year old does a stupid stunt and now has to worry about being tagged as a “sex offender” - that could clearly mess with his head. 15 year olds don’t have the mental acuity to put things in perspective. Every problem looks big to them.
But I don't believe the principal is responsible for this kid's death, as the article implies.
I didn’t see where the threat of being charged as a sex offender led to the suicide. The kid was clearly begging for attention. Who knows what was going on at home, or what else was going on in this kid’s head? “Sex offender” is mentioned and then the kid kills himself? It’s nice that the headline connects the dots for me, but I’ll handle that on my own, thanks.
He must have had other severe problems going on.
FU school pigs at the trough
I hope the parents sue you to the ground
Are you folking kidding me?
This is kid stuff, not a crime, people used to do this all the time, are you insane
“-——— instead of a stupid dead kid.”
Aw,come on,he was 15. Most 15 year old boys do stupid things-—I raised 3 of them.
His prank was overblown and he was frightened.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Here’s the case law that was cited in the termination review:
Looks to me you need to reconsider your assessment of your friend.
Thanks, not that I doubted you, it being California.
I believe you may have overlooked one BJ Clinton.
I guess you didn’t read what you’ve posted.
I don’t know how I forgot the Rapist In Chief.
