You Will Not Believe What Might Get this 13 Year Old an Assault Charge

There used to be an old cheesy pickup line that went something like this: “Somebody call the police because that woman stole my heart!” (I warned you it was cheesy….)

But while the use of a bad pick-up line is (more or less) a victimless crime, a 13 year-old kid stealing an innocent smooch might get him a criminal record.

Reason.com reports:

A Pikesville, Maryland, 13-year-old will be charged with second-degree assault for kissing a 14-year-old girl on a dare. The “assault” happened at Pikesville Middle School on Friday. Police were called to the scene.

According to WBFF:

School officials took a report regarding a 13-year-old boy who kissed a 14-year-old girl during school hours. The unwanted kiss was allegedly the result of a dare made by students.

Police confirm that the boy is now facing a second-degree assault charge as a juvenile. No one was injured during the incident, police say, and disciplinary actions related to suspension or expulsion will be handled by the school system.

While the boy should get a stern talking to, or maybe even grounded, is this whole legal production really necessary? Where are we left as a society if parents can’t discipline their own kids for being socially inappropriate because the school system and the government insist on being the parent for them?

Minor mistakes made by a child are meant to be learned from, not written up on a criminal record. Stupid decisions aren’t supposed to haunt children for the rest of their lives- after all, that’s what social media is for…..
