What Have We Come To?
He's going to have to spend four days in juvenile detention for refusing to write a letter explaining himself after twisting the nipple of another boy while they were standing on line at a deli.I almost hate to say it but the other boy's parents may be raising the biggest wimp west of the Mississippi.
Thumler was convicted of offensive physical touching in July 2005. The victim's parents had complained to Gold Hill police.
The Gold Hill, Ore., boy has already served three days of community service emptying trash cans, mowing lawns and shoveling gravel, along with paying a $67 fine for the offense. But he refused to write the letter holding himself accountable, which would have spared him the time in juvee.Why is the AP using terms like "juvee"? Is this some sort of "let's be cool" game?
I applaud Thumler's fortitude. When I was in high school back in the "day" (late 1960's), we did this sort of thing all the time. Grab another guy's nipple, twist it and tell him to whistle. It was pretty funny to watch him try. After being twisted a few times myself, I learned to whistle very quickly. We called it "Titty Twister." It's just a stupid adolescent activity but not criminal.
I wonder if the victim still breast feeds.
Good luck with everything... I think you are right on with a lot of your commentary.
