What has this country come to when they think it’s a good idea and the right thing to do to target a 6-year-old with a crime such as this?

Whoever was in charge of this incident should be ashamed of themselves and should resign from the police force immediately.

In what universe is it okay to charge a 6-year-old child with property damage after picking a flower?

This kid doesn’t even understand a fraction of what’s going on with this. Plus…IT’S A FLOWER!

For goodness sake, I could understand being upset about it if it were some rare and endangered flower, but even though to prosecute a child of this age is ridiculous.

What I’d like to know is what low-life piece of trash pressed charges against a 6-year-old boy?

Thankfully, the judge dismissed the case immediately.

New Hanover County Chief District Court Judge Jay Corpening asked the obvious question:

“Should children who believe in Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, and the Tooth Fairy be making these significant life choices? I think the answer is no.” said the judge.

Lyana Hunter of the New Hanover County public defender’s office told WECT News 6:

“A 6-year-old … we’re talking about someone that’s in kindergarten, first grade. They don’t understand the process, they don’t understand what’s going on, they probably don’t even know their address. The earlier that you introduce a child to the criminal justice system, the higher the chances are that they will remain in the criminal justice system.”

The boy’s attorney said that his attention span was too short to even follow with the proceedings so she asked him to color a picture instead.

The sad thing about this is that this was all perfectly legal in North Carolina thanks to some outdated laws.

When man is free to many any laws that he wants, this will inevitably be the outcome. That’s not to say that some laws aren’t good and just laws, but people are flawed and they allow stupid laws to exist such as these.

One hobby of mine when I was a teenager was to fill my head with useless facts like laws that existed such as not being able to carry an ice cream cone in your back pocket on Sundays or prohibitions against keeping a donkey in a bathtub. Maybe these served some obscure purpose back then, but keep the codes current.

  • As a 45 year veteran of American policing and presently an adjunct professor of criminal justice I find it necessary to comment on this. Most who read this article will say the police officer used poor judgment in taking the child into custody. I have some serious issues about the officer’s decision as well. However, before we condemn the police officer we should take the totality of the situation into consideration. For example, if the city has a “zero-tolerance” policy about this issue or the officer is under pressure to enforce all laws because local community activists have stripped the police of discretionary authority. Perhaps we should point fingers of blame not at the police officer, but rather the governing body (like city council) for not removing archaic laws from the books.

    • I believe you are correct but still find it disgusting the police officer did not warn the child instead of arresting him. That should have satisfied the law because when a driver is stopped for a traffic infraction the police officer has the discretion to make an arrest, write a citation or give a written or oral warning. Furthermore the prosecutor has the discretion whether or not to prosecute and he or she should be the one apologizing for their misuse of the law and voters should throw the bum out over their callousness and waste of taxpayers’ money by prosecuting this case.

  • POLICE STATE WARNING!

    Ultimately everything man does in violation of his Creator’s laws ranges from dumb to insane. Case in point: The biblically seditious Constitution.

    “For My people have committed two evils: They have forsaken Me, The fountain of living waters, To hew for themselves cisterns, Broken cisterns, That can hold no water.” (Jeremiah 2:13)

    “For My people are foolish, They know Me not; They are stupid children, And they have no understanding. They are shrewd to do evil, But to do good they do not know.” (Jeremiah 4:22)

    Today’s police-state is one more consequence of the whirlwind today’s America is reaping thanks to the wind sown by the constitutional framers when they replaced the Bible’s immutable/unchanging moral law with their own capricious man-made traditions, aka the biblically abominable Constitution:

    “[B]ecause they have … trespassed against my law … they have sown the wind, and they shall reap the whirlwind….” (Hosea 8:1, 7)

    Today’s America is reaping the inevitable ever-intensifying whirlwind resulting from the wind sown by the constitutional framers and fanned by today’s hoodwinked Christians and patriots who have been bamboozled into believing today’s whirlwind can be dissipated by appealing to the wind responsible for spawning the whirlwind.

    Matters will only worsen until Christians and patriots become courageous to identify and address the genesis of all of America’s national woes.

  • What is the story here? What did the child actually do that got him arrested? This story makes no sense to me. Give me the facts first, not just the outrage and commentary. My high-school journalism teacher would have thrown this back in my face with “5W” scrawled across it.
