As we all know, young teens have no capacity to give consent, so they bear no responsibility in any activity involving an adult. Of course, if they shoot up a few of their classmates, they are instantly transformed into adults for purposes of prosecution.
In the youtube video below a girl who claims to be 15 is chatting with an older guy on Chatroulette, where the guy, within minutes, attempts to get the girl to open her blouse (after she asks, “what do you want to see?”). The guy claims to be from Turkey where the age of consent is 18 which is among the highest in Europe. In any case, the only person that seems to be facing any threat in this video is the guy. NOTE: You will probably have to view it full screen to read the chat text.
It may be worth considering that a girl who is smart enough to intentionally snare someone for the purposes of creating a viral youtube video, might also be smart enough to avoid being victimized by such people people in the first place.
If the video were used to show a need for legislation, I would have to disagree. If, on the other hand, the video shows the need for adult supervision of teens, then I think it makes a good case. Assuming the girl really is only 15, would her parents appreciate her doing this on her own? And if the parents are in on it, I question whether they are acting responsibly by publishing a video of their daughter doing something that might invite retribution. Even cops don’t identify the people they have posing as children on line.
I would classify this as vigilantism (if not “cyberbullying”). In a matter of minutes she has potentially jeopardized this guy’s future and that of his family and walked away without any responsibility. Even sensationalistic sleazy journalism as practiced on programs like “To Catch a Predator” at least involve the police department and the justice system.
