The incidents, in which the girl allegedly performed oral sex on five varsity hockey players and a 15-year-old-student in a dorm room and a locker room, sparked national news coverage. It is illegal under state law to engage in sexual activities with anyone under 16 years of age. Two of the hockey players were 16 at the time of the incidents, according to an academy team roster. The others were 17 and 18, and they would be charged as adults. A lawyer for the five boys could not be reached for comment yesterday”.
So why is this one a crime more than that of Jamie and Aldridge?
I want to remind you again of the case of Genarlow Wilson who was charged with statutory rape though he was 17 and the girl 15. His conviction was only overturned by the GA Supreme Court as cruel and unusual punishment on October 26, 2007 after spending more than two years in jail
On November 19, 2007, three boys: ages 8 and 9 in Acworth GA were charged with statutory rape of an 11 year old girl. Again why is this different from the Jamie/Aldridge case?
When I was a kid my father always said: son, the law is blind. Now I can tell my late father: “dad, it is true that the law is blind but the prosecutors and judges see especially in America”. Who will send a letter to the world of the dead so my father can read and see how the law he always said was blind sees. It sees colors and sees social stratification. It would seem the American law wears a mask; a mask that changes with color and money. If you are black sorry, if you are poor sorry too!
Until then, may the Lord help us in Jesus’ name!
