Yep, the world is going friggin' insane!  What is next?  Toddlers who touch themselves or someone else?


CONSTANTINE – A southwest Michigan teacher was not in her classroom today, as police investigate an alleged sex crime involving 5-year-olds.

Parents at East Side Middle School in Constantine, which is in St. Joseph County, say they received a letter informing them that police were investigating a “sexual crime” that happened between 5-year-old boys.

The letter explains the act happened in a kindergarten classroom but did not say exactly what happened.

The school says one other child may have been involved.

Some parents are hesitant to send their kids back to school.

(My son) begs for me not to send him to school,” said parent Jamie Russell. “He doesn’t want to go to nap time or recess.”

I think she’s a great teacher,” said Melissa Stevenson, another parent. “It is not her fault at all. I’m upset with the parents of the kids. I think stuff like that starts at home.

The teacher of that class was removed from the classroom, which is a school district policy.

The school says she is not involved in what happened between the kids. but further investigation is needed before she could return to school.

This is not the first time nor will be the last that our laws jump up and bite the ones that they say they are trying to protect. If it saves just one child it will all be worth it. How many children lives will be ruined trying to save that one child? the school is trying to protect it's collective butt as the law is so broad they required to report and investigate everything that involves a perceived sexual element and a child. Doesn't mater if the alleged offender is also child. We must eradicate all perceived acts of pedophilia to protect the children. Sounds tough doesn't it. Tough on crime. tough on the five year old pedophiles? Well parents hang on as this could happen to you and your child. We don't know what our little ones might try and they don't know either. so keep them at home at all times until they are 18. You just about need to as the liability they represent to you and themselves. You never know what kind of trouble is waiting as more and more laws are created and levied on babies. Have we gone to far yet?

Perhaps it's just me but I'm failing to see in this article exactly what happened...
Something about being afraid of nap time? Perhaps some kind o "sexual" act took place?
If something happened, why aren't they reporting it? If the teacher was removed, there must be some evidence? What up?!
