I'd like to cut my ears off and feed 'em to a grizzley bear...

...because I even heard that Britney's 16 year old sister is knocked up by her 19 year old boyfriend. Like I even care. 'Course, no matter what radio station or tv channel ya have on, it's spewing forth like ca-ca from a busted sewer line. Jeeezus. Don't we have enough real news to report?

But when I read this little blurb in the local paper this morning, it made me wonder just what in the hell is the difference between the two stories? Jamie Spears' family is blathering on about what a helluva guy her boyfriend is, whereas this family...well...definitely isn't.

PEKIN - An East Peoria man is in jail for allegedly having sex with a 15-year-old girl he met through church.

Christopher B. McGrew, 21, of 304 Shady Lane faces one count of aggravated criminal sexual abuse in Tazewell County Circuit Court for allegedly having sex with the girl last month.

The girl's father contacted police after learning about an ongoing sexual relationship his daughter was having with McGrew, court records said.

Police said they interviewed the girl and McGrew and both said they had sex on several occasions and as recently as Nov. 10 when McGrew picked the girl up from her friend's house and drove her to East Peoria.

McGrew said he knew the girl through church and through working with her father, court records said.

Now as far as I'm concerned, any adult who takes sexual advantage of a child should be classified a pedophile. They should be jailed (ok, I really think they should be killed, but that's fodder for a whole 'nother post) and, once they're out, they should be monitored. They should be labeled. They should be ordered to register as a sex offender and/or sexual predator.

But I have a problem with situations like the one mentioned in the paper.

Maybe some legal-eagle-type can shed a little light on the subject. Why is it that Little Miss Binkie's boyfriend is A-OK...but this poor schmuck in EP is being charged with "sexual abuse"?

Is it considered "sexual abuse" only if someone kicks up a stink about it?
