UK: Manchester Teen Faces Sex Offender Status for Touching 17-Year-Old on the Arm, Waist

Last fall, in Manchester, England, an awkward 19-year-old male student touched a 17-year-old female classmate’s arm on the street during the daytime. He later said he had wanted to make a friend.

This rattled the young woman so much that she went to the police. Now the young man is facing possible jail time and could be placed on the sex offense registry. Full Article

Bill, and friends,
The gov database is what is going on. Very useful for political job security. No?

“We can think of no motivation for you to touch the victim other than sexual.”

“… she had “no doubt” that had she not moved away from him that first time he touched her arm, he would have gone on to touch her breast.”

All I can do/say is shake my head at what the world has become. Fear induced by society.

@R M:
Never underestimate the fear-driven mind of a Snowflake. I weep and fear for the future of the Western, Anglo-Saxon cultures.

Then again, let’s all jump for joy they were able to capture this dangerous offender of such a heinous crime.

This article and others about kids (a 5 yr old hugging/kissing, a 9 yr old murdering, ect) being subject to crimes they had no ideal about drive me nuts. You stated “I weep and fear for the future of the Western, Anglo-Saxon cultures.” I weep for all. I was 38 when I committed an offense… even then I was ignorant to the laws, I so feel bad for today’s youth.

@R M:
Oh I, too, weep for all. My point was that it seems to be mostly an Anglo-Saxon (UK and progeny) problem. Mainland Europe doesn’t seem to care a whit about such things. The rest of the world seems a mixed bag, influenced whichever way by influences from other sovereigns (Ex: Thailand acted more due to the US than of its own volition).

What’s more upsetting is that the courts allowed the frivilous charges to go through!

I don’t expect the “victim” to understand the guidelines for the charges but the JUDGE?!!

This is a terrible day to be on our glorious mother earth.

This sounds genuinely like a over-reaction on the teenagers part.
More importantly then that? It also sounds over dramatized to a point that I’m not to sure if this isn’t a bad movie actor playing her role terribly.

I have “No doubt” that this young woman needs to learn what sexual assault is and someone needs to examine this more closely.

There is a likely hood that she has the sexual deviancy and obsession or hatred to for the males.

I’m willing to bet everything I own that one day she will get caught by her parents having sex and to save herself she will cry rape.

She is drama queen and not a victim.

Thank God this dangerous sexual predator was apprehended and charged. Hopefully he will be sentenced to the max and placed on the registry for life because we all know that registries protect children and keep the public safe. I’ll be able to sleep at night knowing where he is by looking him up on the registry because I certainly wouldn’t want this dangerous sex offender to find me and sexually assault me by touching me on the arm. That would be a horrific experience for me and would take years and years of therapy to get over. I sure am… Read more »

It’s a shame he wasn’t already on the registry before this evil crime happened because everyone knows that the registries prevent sexual assaults. Hopefully more registries will be created and everyone will be put on them so no more crimes will ever be committed. Then the world will be filled with peace and happiness and everyone will be safe forever. No more crimes, no more hate, no more war.

We have come full circle….. women’s rights / equality now equals automatic victim-hood / lack of agency. I say this as a woman.

I think it is time to require women in public to cover themselves head-to-toe in a sack like garment or have a male relative chaperone present at all times. Just like in those countries we bomb into civilization.

This is lunacy!!!

The lunatics are running the asylum.

I’m reminded of an SNL sketch where an innocent customer tries to return something but everything he says, no matter how benign, is interpreted as offensive. Despite his exceedingly mild demeanor to de-escalate the situation, the staff over react until the female clerk yells “rape!”

You can’t win. Don’t hire women. Don’t talk to them. Don’t look at them. Avoid them at all cost. It’s simple risk management.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
