Regarding the Sept. 9 editorial “A ‘sexting’ law that must be changed” reprinted from the Fayetteville Observer: It sure is interesting the major contrasts in laws we have for so-called protection.
A 17-year-old male who stupidly sent explicit pictures to his consenting girlfriend faces possible prison time of 10 years and a lifetime listing as a registered sex offender, but a murderer can actually spend less time in prison and never have to sign up as a registered killer because no such list exists.
Who exactly was hurt by this young man’s actions? It’s 2015, but sometimes it feels like we’re living in the Middle Ages where people actually thought dragons and wizards were real.
At some point our laws have got to be redone by people using logic and not emotions.
Never miss a local story.
