No Prosecution but No Common Sense

Ok, so I appreciate that a lot of the world’s media attention is focused on the tragic plane crash in New York right now but one of the stories of note over here in my mind right now is this one: the 13 year old boy that became a father after knocking up his fifteen year old girlfriend.

Though at the time of conception they were only 12 and 14 years old respectively. Now what get’s me about this is that the current focus of the story is that the police aren’t going to prosecute…. Who?! Who would they be prosecuting exactly if they were going to? The boy for statutory rape? The girl for being a bloody idiot? The pair of them? The should be bloody well prosecuting and they should be prosecuting the parents for letting this happen!

I know that it’s not the 1950s but what kind of parents let their 12 and 14 year old kids become sexually active?! Am I the only one who thinks this is nuts?!!

What’s more nuts is that I’m actually in agreement with the government on this one: Iain Duncan Smith stated that “I don’t know about these particular families but too many dysfunctional families in Britain today have children growing up where anything goes.”

Damn bloody right it does! What the hell?!

What does the father have to say for himself? “I didn’t know what it would be like to be a dad. I will be good, though, and care for it.” Of course you didn’t! You’re 13! How are you going to care for it when you’re not old enough to care for yourself?!

Of course The Sun seem to think it’s a bloody miracle and made the pair of them front-page stars:

Am I the only one rubbing my eyes and staring in disbelief at all this??!! Where has all the common sense gone from the world…
