Six-Year-Old Disciplined --- for Sexual Harassment

In South Carolina, a six-year-old was disciplined for offensive and suggestive remarks he made about his teacher. Still worse, his father is a pastor.

Charlene and Malory Pinkney, of Greer, S.C. said their son, Malory Pinkney II, came home from Skyland Elementary in tears on Tuesday. Malory was apparently given a referral because a teacher filed a complaint about remarks that Malory had made about her to another kindergarten teacher.

The Pinkneys were told that Malory's remarks included saying the teacher was "a hottie," asking if teachers “sleep together,” and saying that a classmate of his liked looking at the teacher's "butt."

Malory Sr. said:
"Why are they trying to implicate my son as being a sexual pervert? If he says anything between now and the end of the school year, this thing will scar him for the rest of his life. We live a structured lifestyle. The things that I'm hearing don't happen in my household. I want to know why no one told us about these comments before. If the teacher was so offended, why didn't she call us earlier?"
Personally, I'm not sure what to think of this story, but I'm sure the Pinkneys want to get the whole thing behind them.

OK, a 6 year old....why don't the parents apologize, punish the child, and move on? Making a child's disobedience headlines seems absurd. Once more, my fellow Americans, no one's at fault, but we're all victims.
