IL: Suit settled in teen suicide that led to Illinois law change

[abcnews.go.com – 8/31/19]

The case of a suburban Chicago teenager who killed himself after being confronted at his high school about whether he made a video of himself having sex with a classmate raised uncomfortable questions about how aggressively school officials should question kids suspected of wrongdoing and whether they should wait until a parent arrives.

A wrongful death lawsuit brought by the parents of 16-year-old Corey Walgren that focused on those questions has been resolved, with the city of Naperville expected to approve a settlement on Tuesday in which it and the local school district each agree to pay the Walgren family $125,000.

Walgren’s death on Jan. 11, 2017, three hours after a dean and in-school police officer at Naperville High School told the honor-roll student he might face child pornography charges also prompted a change in Illinois law.

    Just the thought of being on the registry has people committing suicide.

    And many have already committed suicide to escape it.

    Elected officials still think it’s no big deal.
    Not punishment they say. Not shaming. Not debilitating.

    Wish those officials were forced to sit face to face with the families of lost ones and convince them that it’s no big deal.

    He would’ve been added to the registry as well. How many Americans are added to this thing on a daily basis? How many in a year? To what end? Add to that the families part of the collateral damage, and we have a majority of Americans on it. We’ll each know somebody in our circles who’s on the registry and no one will give a crap. A tool of fear and greed turned into an every day, common joke – not to be taken seriously by anyone, anymore. I mean, where else is this leading to? An end of constitutional rights for majority of America?

      About 40,000 a year.
      There are just over 900,000 on it.

      The collateral damage at most could be 2 parents spouse and 1 child.
      That’s 900,000 x 4.

      Children as young as 9 are on it.
      There are some who were put on it for drug crimes. Not sexually motivated.

      You’re right. Statistically, whether they realize it is not, everyone knows someone who happens to be on the registry.

    I know myself well enough to know that had these monsters at the school driven my child, my son who I love more than life itself, to suicide I’d no longer have anything to lose. They’d feel my wrath. Period.
