Predators are crafty little things. They largely go where children are likely to appear. So blocking adult sites or forbiding your children from particpating on certain sites is not going to take away the threat of sexual predators (or any other kind of predator). I place the blame squarely on these adults who recognize that someone on the internet is a child and get into vulgar/suggestive/inappropriate conversations and interactions with them. Every teenager assumes they are savvy enough to...

So, did I read that right: The grandmother agreed to press charges because he stole her car (I presume the sister who was riding in it with him had no knowledge of his theft)? I took my parents car at 15 y/o and went joyriding and got into other trouble, too. Purely adolescent angst, no law enforcement involved, but trouble nonetheless. This is yet another tragedy that can't be explained away.

It's interesting how you listed the desriptions "Black," "six figure salary," "lawyer," "advisor," etc. as if these characteristics delineates a person who is trustworthy and honest.

In fact, some would argue that people in these positions tend to be the least trustworthy because they have formed alliances with people who have earned their status...

I think we have a fundamental difference in who we are talking about. Contrary to your assertion, the "average Joe" driving home after a few beers is not who is being addressed here. There is an extraordinary difference between that person and the person with multiple DUI convictions. It's not just luck that separates the two. No one is suggesting that we institute a 'thought police'. We can only police behavior not proclivity. Under the right circumstances everyone can do anything.

In "Race, Crime, and the Law", by Randall Kennedy, he details this dichotomy very well. In short, the law has never been our friend.

They were only crimes if the victim was white. Then, there is unequal enforcement of the law. The "Slave Codes" were ridiculus to any rational mind. One of the ironies I...
