Words Of Wisdom
A squirrel trying to cross the road decided to dart across between the cars. Part way, one of the cars tires clipped off a little piece of his tail. Reaching the other side he looked back at the little piece of tail and decided to run back and get it. He just couldn't leave the little piece of tail alone. So with his sights set on getting it back and without looking for traffic he darted back across the road when a car ran over his head.
Moral of the story, don't lose your head over a little piece of tail.
I read in the news today of the mother of three from the states who went to Canada and had sex with a sixteen year old Canadian kid. The police found them at a motel and they had already done the deed but the age of consent in Canada is sixteen. The boy had run away to be with this woman so the police took him back home. They couldn't arrest the woman but they notified Police in her stste who arrested her when she got off the plane.
But the legal (Not moral) question is this, how can the US arrest her for something that is not a crime in another country. So actually she has not commited a crime but she has been arrested, lost her job because of the arrest and could face up to ten years in prison.
In Germany the legal drinking age is sixteen for beer and wine. If my son who is sixteen goes to Germany to visit his uncle and they visit a pub to drink beer together, would my brother be subject to arrest here in the states? Well I just bet there are thousands of parents in the states who have traveled to Germany on vacation and had a beer with their sixteen year old kids there. So, should they also be subject to arrest?
My point being, has any law actually been broken?
