First-grader is accused of “sexual assault”
A 6-year-old San Francisco boy was accused of “sexual assault” for touching his best friend’s groin while roughhousing. A school principal made the charge in suspending the first-grader. His mother threatened to sue and had his record cleared. Child psychiatrist Stuart Lustig said schools often overreact in such situations “because of the legal environment.”
Clarifying the meaning of destroy
A British tourist was handcuffed and barred from entering the U.S. because he had tweeted that he planned to “destroy America.” Leigh Van Bryan, 26, says he tried explaining to special agents in Los Angeles that “destroy,” in current slang, simply means to “party quite hard in,” but his clarification fell on deaf ears. “They just told me, ‘You’ve really f---ed up with that tweet, boy,’” said Van Bryan.
