Poll: Should he still be punished?

 Pages 1 2 3 4 NEXT
 

Here´s the scenario:

A 13-year old is caught looking at child porn. Nothing sick like torture or even sex, just nude girls in his age. Should he still be punished? Should the punishment be less severe?

Me? I dunno. There´s a gray and gray morality thing going on here.

Explain to him its dangerous to browse nude girls below 18, because of the laws and etc, that you can go to jail for it or get in lots of trouble with the law.

No need for punishment.

But he should know the law.

EDIT: illegal to brose nude girls below age of 18

No need for punishment.

I swear its 18 0_o

Umm...nude girls his age? That, would technically still be child porn, yes. And yeah, he should be punished, and also explained to him exactly the kind of trouble he could get into simply possessing such material, regardless of intent.

yea i was thinking about legal age for sex with consent, sorry.

Yes it's definitely a grey area. I don't think he should be punished, but he should be warned of the consequences, and punished if he does it again.

GothmogII:
Umm...nude girls his age? That, would technically still be child porn, and I'd have to wonder where in the hells he got a magazine. For the argument, you could have just said porn.

He didn't say anything about a magazine.

OT: I think he should be aware that what he's doing is illegal, but I don't think it's particularly wrong.

No. He should not be punished. Sure, he's going to be on every government watch list until his decayed remains have been decayed once more, and he should be warned to not go looking for 'em, but other than that? What's the harm?

edit: I prefer my second post disregard this one.(my internet went screwy)

Harshest thing they could do is try him as a minor and that's if they see it as a crime, which I doubt they will. Otherwise, knocking a teen under the age of 18 up would be illegal and a good portion of my school would have a criminal charge.

I noticed that, call it a kneejerk response on my part. ;)

i don't think he should be punished from a moral point of view (i don't know what the legal situation would be, considering his age and all)
i guess it depends on if they were underage but his age or maybe older than him (which i guess would be natural for a 13 year old) or very, very underage (which i guess wouldn't)

Well, I would kinda consider this statatory rape seeing as how if two 17 YO's had sex, both consenting, would be ok with me but not with the law. So I say it wouldn't hurt to look at women a little older than you are, but he shouldn't be punished for it. Now if he did it again, or has a folder of it, that would be a little differnent.

Not really, since he probably didn't understand.
Explaining the problem and giving him a warning is probably as far as you should go with that.

Damn, I love pancakes!

I think he should receive a small punishment; even though I am quite fond of pancakes.

He's a thirteen year old paedophile!

...
This doesn't make that much sense.

Anyway, yeah. Someone should EXPLAIN to him instead of "UPP! UPPPP!!! GET IN THE CORNER!"

The fuck would he be punished for? That's like calling him a pedophile for have sex with girls his own age.

It should be explained that viewing porn like that is illegal and could get people in trouble, but punished is going too far for a kid's natural curiosity and ignorance of the laws. If he continues to do it, then yeah sure punish him, but other than that no.

He should be punished.

1. You are not allowed to browse nude girls under the age of 18
2.You aren't allowed to view adult content of any kind under the age of 18 (certain states may have variations on this law)

He should be punished regardless of his age, although it just means he wont have as large a sentence as someone over the age of 18 or even 16.

Because ite explotive and they are not yet of age to understand the legal rights and the consequences of their actions illegaly, it is taking advatage of youth.

This is a very hard moral choice for me. I say he shouldn't be punished... But I just finished eating pancakes. I wish to remain anonymous

Something you would like to confess OP?

Tell him not to look at the pictures and have sex instead.

What should happen:-
Explained that this is a crime and he should not browse such images, possibly some time with a shrink.

What will happen:-
OMG! PAEDO! CHARGE HIM AS AN ADULT! ITS AN ADULT CRIME!
Much as people tend to do when 2 consenting 15yo have sex the male gets statutory rape and sentenced as an adult.

No, he shouldn't be punished. It's perfectly normal to want to see the opposite gender of your age nude.

Next time, let's punish boys playing doctor games with girls for being child molesters. Wait, stuff like that already happened.

So he looked at nude girls his age? If the girls were forced to pose nude then punish them but punishing a 13 year old boy for looking at a 13 year old girl is just stupid. They're his age and he's obviously attracted to them as puberty tends to start at 12-13. If the buy is going to be punished then by that same logic you have to punish every single underaged teenager that looks at girls/boys his/her age.

Im not sure if you made your point clear here. Are you saying its wrong to explain to him that its illegal to browse 13 year old girls?

Is this the thing when the kid was reading manga that had underage girls naked? Cause if its that than I dont see a problem...

He should be given a light punishment, Nothing to severe mind you. Perhaps just an hour or two of Council work or Psychiatric care perhaps.

Novskij:
snip

Why should it be illegal for a 13 year old boy to look at nude 13 year old girls? Like I've said in my previous post, punish the ones that forced the girls to pose nude if there are any. If not, then there's really no problem here.

WINDOWCLEAN2:

Psychiatric care?! Are you actually suggesting you send a 13 year old boy going through puberty to a shrink because he looked at girls HIS age?! I guess we should now send teenagers under the age of 18 that had sex to a shrink as well because well fuck me, there's obviously something wrong with them since they disobeyed the law. They're pre-teens. They're going through puberty. Of course they're going to look at naked women. So because this one decided to look at naked girls HIS age he should be punished? By your logic, any 13 year old who thinks of other 13 year olds in a sexual manner is fucking mentally ill. That makes absolutely no sense.

Yes he should. Thats child pornography

I love them pancakes...

What? Oh! Right... Hm, from a moral, boring kind of viewpoint - yes. From a logical viewpoint - no. He wasn't doing anything wrong he was just being curious. So, I don't see the big deal. The kid's aiming low, if you know what I mean ;d

wasalp:
I'm pretty sure you can't get sentenced for such a thing at that age(under 18) where I live(Canada).

Pro Tip: To save any on your hard drive, cache that shit.

Is the tip from many years of prison gruel and fun friday nights?

Also, tell him the consequences but don't punish him, he would have seen it sooner our later cause of high-school.

He should be punished in full. Because its still illegal because hes under age to be viewing porn none the less.

But yeah i do tottally agree its a very gray area.
