    "... Probably were sentenced to church one too many times." Or quite possibly, one time too few. It's a matter of perspective.

    We are not defined by our thoughts, but our actions. It takes personal strength, conviction and morality to do what we know is right. It also takes a sense of responsiblity and accountability, something some are lacking and not able to take upon themselves. Unfortunately our society as a whole leans toward letting others be reponsible for us. The weak minded believe they are not in control or use their urges as an excuse for their actions. Given this weakness and lack of repercussions harsh enough to deter these actions, we have this.

    Would be less sexist.

    Not all men ar unable to control themselves, just as not all women "are" able to control themselves.

    Oh, so young. But he made a choice to assault someone and now he should have to pay the price of consequences. He knows right from wrong. Some good time in prison might be the way to go here.
