“Judge Wood said there’s no evidence Walgren broke the law with the video…). Way to go Naperville North High School, you literally scared the boy to death without cause.

This isn’t the only time I’ve read where the threat of becoming a registrant has led to suicide. Surprises me that there are still so many idiots in black robes who to this day think the registry isn’t punishment.

I hope they keep fighting and win! Poor kid didn’t have a chance to be told by anyone intelligent about the witch hunt this country is doing to anyone ‘looking at someone under legal age’. Disgusting and pathetic what these Lawmakers have done to people, resulting in unnecessary deaths, all due to one attorney who was able to argue the Utter B*llshit that possessing such material somehow creates a market for it, despite the fact that the material is made without any transactional/monetary value in 99.5% of all cases and IS CONCENSUAL in many cases as well, according to science regarding how the adolescent mind works. I can’t believe this is still allowed to continue. The same B*ullshit argument could be made that any videos showing death on the internet create a ‘market for murder’. I mean, how Insanely Stupid does one need to be to believe this?

Why isn’t Critical Thinking taught in schools anymore? How much nonsense would we eliminate and lives improved if that was the case?

Just another dead young man because of the poor quality leadership. America is loosing its young people in droves to this and that. NO ONE CARES.

This kids death was in vain.
Does anyone know how to get a fund started for the Parents to keep this suit going?
People need to know this Registry IS PUNISHMENT and worse than death.

I can think of so many stories, news that showed a guilty verdicts judgement against individuals and or groups that were partly or wholly to blame for a death due to harassment, instigating, provoking, shaming, feeding lies, manipulating and many more wrongs…..
But when authorities and people in power are to blame the court’s just act as if they had no fault in the matter ! Now these parents had to bury a son for some screwed up laws and individuals having there damndable way which drove the boy to suicide,,,,,who could deny this clear reality. .! What a bunch of shiiit ,,,,scuuum a holes in this country ! To be the parent is beyond heartbreak, to know and be forced to live with low life garbage of leaders like them !

In reading the court document, they keep using this fact against him… “Walgren was an honor-roll student with no disciplinary record or history of violence or self-harm.” and in doing so, shift the blame for the suicide onto the student.

Essentially they are saying, even though we had no proof of a crime after this warrant-less search and that we (3 people in authority) questioned him without his parents there and no due process and did not see he was emotionally distressed, it’s not our fault. Give me a break.

The court did leave the case open for appeal… “Plaintiffs are granted leave to file a second amended complaint that remedies the pleading deficiencies discussed herein, if they are able to do so consistent with the requirements of Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11.”

The motions to dismiss were granted on issues that can be remedied. In the end, I see this family winning huge. I also acknowledge that no amount of money will bring their “honor-roll student with no disciplinary record or history of violence or self-harm” back.
