I suppose that depends on whether Fluffy consented. ("Bark once for yes...")
Nope it doesn't. If Fluffy is a purebread the guy will get into trouble for more than just the offense
Plus Fluffy was handed over to be looked after. Same situation in school, daycare etc. for children: The 12 year old might consent - it's still abuse.
So I agree with Lib that such a person should never be able to work in what ever enviroment he was caught abusing who/what ever. If he/she had the urge once the risk can not be taken again ever.

I'm surprised to read these things on EF lately. Doing nothing is definitely not the right thing to do so I agree, it should be reported. The expectation should not be punishment for the kids but help/correction.

According to art. 15, Waffengesetz (gun control law) using pepper spray is legal in Switzerland (which I think wasn't a while ago) but you can't just spray it around because people cycle by, it must be an attack or a threat of an attack! Also one should think well about using it, depending on the situation, as it can make an attacker even more furious = more dangerous! So it is actually only useful to gain time to get away.

This example is a far outlier, and does fall under RufusB's 'deeper issues' category.


And not to diminish the severity of the OP's situation, but a groping of the buttox is of a very different severity than abduction, torture, mutilation, and murder of an infant.
Not according to Taylor Swift:

Seeing he ran away I think he did know it was wrong.

Education is not the problem here but discipline and manners.

Thanks a lot everyone

I'm feeling a lot better and now i'm ready to report this to the police. Eventhough he won't get punished because he's maybe too young but it's the right thing to do better than doing nothing.
Being talked to by the police in front of his parents and having them show up at his house may be enough of a deterrent. If it isn't, then there's obviously something wrong with the parenting which may be picked up on.

It also makes the police aware of the issue - so if there are several reports, the issue can be escalated rather than just looking like a one-off.

There are other scenarios - maybe he's being abused and taking it out on others, you could actually be helping him by reporting it.

Re: Sexual Harassment from a minor?

Not sure how Taylor Swift is related to my comment, but I'm glad she's coming forward with this. It's a shame she didn't want to, and just forget about it, and only brought it to the spot light when he tried to sue her 2 years later. Who knows what that creep has been getting away with since---assuming of course, he's guilty.

Smack the crap out of him.

Then call the police.

This, batter him. Black eye, busted limp, broken wrist.

Yep, that's what I wondered about. Any such abuse should be made very obvious right on the spot. If someone tried that with me, he would be in for a very embarrassing moment that would keep him off trying it again anywhere for good! And the bigger and more official the event the better

One problem seems to be that some woman suffer from vicarious embarrassment. Name and shame and make the biggest possible deal out of it on the spot is what teaches them, I think.
