    Default Boy commits suicide..faced with harsh charges over streaking incident

    faced with being put on a sex offender registry as the result of a harmless prank, this kid killed himself

    at that age, kids are so impulsive

    I completely get that sex offender registries are helpful to identify some potential risks, but is this really what the system was designed for? and to threaten a kid of this age with that kind of legal action for an incidence of streaking? Whatever became of the young woman who streaked the golf tournament?

    Christian Adamek Commits Suicide at 15; Faced Charges for Streaking at Football Game

    By Sami K. Martin , Christian Post Contributor

    October 14, 2013|9:09 am

    Christian Adamek, 15, took his own life after being arrested for streaking during a high school football game in Harvest, Alabama. Family and friends remember Adamek as a playful young man who had an energetic spirit.

    Adamek streaked across the football field during a September 27th football game against Grissom High School. While many laughed off the prank and chalked it up to youthful indiscretion, law officials were not so amused. Adamek was disciplined by the school district and faced legal action by the Madison County court system.

    "There's the legal complications," Principal Michael Campbell told WHNT News. "Public lewdness and court consequences outside of school with the legal system, as well as the school consequences that the school system has set up."
    According to reports, public lewdness charges in Alabama could lead to one being listed on the state's sex offender registry. Adamek also faced expulsion, according to his sister, who posted the information on Twitter.

    "Our prayers and thoughts are with the family during this time of bereavement," a statement from the Madison County school district read.

    Friends and family gathered together to remember Adamek's life and energy at a memorial service. They wore orange ribbons in his honor.

    "Let this service bring some of that comfort we desperately need," Pastor C.W. Turner said during the memorial.

    "There are two kinds of people in the world," Adamek's Boy Scout Troop master added, "ones that brighten the room when they walk in and those that don't. He was one that brightened the room when he walked in. That's what I'll always remember about Christian," David Silvernail said

    Adamek's mother, Angela, also spoke at the assembly and offered advice to all those gathered.

    "Remember to smile; don't be afraid to do something goofy and remember the consequences of those actions. Ask for help when you need it. Ask for help if you think your friends need it if you don't know what to do; be quirky, be happy, be smart," she implored

    We are just out of our fucking minds in this country.

    I personally know of instances in which people have stolen hundreds of thousands of dollars and not served significant jail time (I mean weekends for stealing 250K), yet a fifteen year old kid streaking is worthy of legal action, including being listed as a sex offender?

    Fucking moronic.

    Christ I streaked on a beach at the age, and I've seen countless streakers during our university football games a few years back. It's part of growing up for some people, this is insane.

    Kids are getting in trouble for being kids. We need to stop that. This whole silly "zero tolerance policy" obsession has to end. Let's go back to using common sense.

    A senseless loss, but one thing the story doesn't spell out is whether the prosecutor on the case was actually pursuing his being placed on the sex offender registry. There are lots of laws on the books that aren't enforced. I'm wondering whether that was speculation on the part of the local media or his family, or if a prosecutor was actually threatening it.
