Sarina Butcher: Teen soldier mom killed by Taliban bomb in Afghanistan

November 5, 2011

Private First Class Sarina Butcher, 19, of Checotah. she was assigned to the 700th Brigade Support Battalion, 45th Infantry Brigade Combat Team based in Tulsa.yes she had a child when she was 16 and she was well adjusted. Age of consent in OK is 16. Ms. Butcher had a 2 yo daughter, and was 19 when she died. With 9 mo gestation, and pre-existing relationship, that would make her under 16 when impregnated. Age of Consent laws are such a travesty! our disgust with young moms in the US of A is backwards. many women become more stable after giving birth to children. our feminist arrogance is wearing thin. this girl is a hero. I mean that proportionately. no one is saying to rape 12 year old girls either. I’m just saying that we really don’t understand women when we criticize young girls for childbirth. This girl was responsible and motivated… and we should honor her!

(dailymail.co.uk) Tragic loss: 19-year-old mother Sarina Butcher is the first female Oklahoma National Guard soldier to be killed during wartime and the youngest Oklahoma citizen-soldier to die in combat in Iraq or Afghanistan A 19-year-old mother serving with the National Guard has been killed in Afghanistan after the vehicle she was traveling in was hit by a Taliban roadside bomb.

Private First Class Sarina Butcher of the Oklahoma National Guard was off supporting her three-year-old daughter and career dreams when killed on Tuesday during a resupply mission in the country’s Paktia province.
A second soldier, Specialist Sergeant Christopher Gailey, 26, a father to a three-year-old girl, was also killed in the explosion.
The bodies of the two soldiers were flown back to Dover Air Force base, Delaware yesterday.
An aspiring nurse, Ms Butcher joined the national guard to help finance and pursue her career dreams while also helping to support her young daughter Zoey.
Her grandmother, Martha Wills, described her as a much-loved daughter, sister, granddaughter and mother.
‘My husband is so proud of her, actually we all are,’ Mrs Wills told Tulsa World of her husband who was also in the military.
‘My son, he’s so torn right now,’ she described the 19-year-old’s father.
In her mere 18 months of service with the Guard, Ms Butcher stood decorated with several ribbons and awards.

‘She was very proud to be in the military,’ family friend Patty Brown told Tulsa World of Ms Butcher’s service as an automated logistical specialist after joining the Guard in April of 2010.
‘She joined the military to follow in her grandfather’s and brother’s footsteps,’ Ms Brown said.

Close to Ms Butcher, Ms Brown said she took care of Zoey when her mother was away from home.
She says the last time she spoke with her daughter was on Sunday, asking her how she was doing after hearing news that her grandfather had died recently.
‘She was very thoughtful, someone you could always count on,’ Brown said.

Fourth District U.S. Representative Mike Ross, D-Ar., on hearing Ms Butcher’s death remarked, ‘Another American hero was tragically taken from us in the line of duty.

Statutory Rape Law Held Unconstitutionally Open to Selective Enforcement, As Applied to Sex Between Two Minors

June 10, 2011

what is good for the Goose is… uh good for the Goose… or um… What is good for the Gosling is good for the Gosling:

a 12-year-old boy, D.B., who had sex with an 11-year-old boy, M.G. D.B. was charged both with forcible rape of M.G. and with statutory rape, which criminalizes any sex with someone who “is less than thirteen years of age.” (A different statute makes it a crime for an over-18-year-old to have sex with a 13-to-16-year-old, so don’t think that the general age of consent in Ohio is 13.) The juvenile court judge convicted D.B. of the statutory rape, but not of the forcible rape, gave him probation and a suspended sentence, and ordered him “to attend counseling and group therapy.”
Of course, if there was no forcible rape, then M.G. as well as D.B. would be guilty of statutory rape, since M.G. also had sex with someone (D.B.) who was “less than thirteen years of age.” The prosecutor, though, prosecuted only D.B. In this case, that prosecutorial choice was basically mandated as to most of the sexual incidents by the prosecutor’s view that the sex was forced by D.B. (One of the nine counts of the indictment was for statutory rape alone, while the others were for forcible rape or statutory rape; but even there the prosecutor might well have thought the sex was forced, like he thought it was in the other eight incidents, but just thought the evidence was inconclusive on the subject.)

the Ohio Supreme Court basically held that this discretionary approach to statutory rape, under which two people would routinely be guilty but the prosecutor would choose which one to prosecute, violates the federal Due Process Clause and Equal Protection Clause: The statute is “unconstitutionally vague because the statute authorizes and encourages arbitrary and discriminatory enforcement.” And, “[b]ecause D.B. and M.G. were both under the age of 13 at the time the events in this case occurred, they were both members of the class protected by the statute, and both could have been charged under the offense,” so “[a]pplication of the statute in this case to a single party violates the Equal Protection Clause’s mandate that persons similarly circumstanced shall be treated alike.” (The opinion was unanimous on the first, Due Process Clause, theory, though one judge didn’t endorse the Equal Protection Clause theory.)

Girl, 13, charged as sex offender and victim

If this reasoning is accepted throughout the country, the results would be sweeping. First, many states outlaw all sex — without exceptions for people close in age — not just with under-13-year-olds, but with under-16-year-olds or, in the case of California, under-18-year-olds. (Sex among 15-to-17-year-olds is a misdemeanor, in theory for both parties.) All those statutory rape laws would be cast into doubt, when applied to sex among minors who are under the age of consent. via volokh.com  and image via best-of-web.com

this is completely stupid.  They are 12 years old!  You don’t prosecute children for their urges if the sex is consensual.  Sorry… the Sexual hysteria is really insane


Girl, 13, charged as sex offender and victim – The Denver Post

June 14, 2010

Salt Lake City – Utah Supreme Court justices acknowledged Tuesday that they were struggling to wrap their minds around the concept that a 13-year-old girl could be both an offender and a victim for the same act – in this case, having consensual sex with her 12-year-old boyfriend.
The Ogden, Utah, girl was put in this odd position because she was found guilty of violating a state law that prohibits sex with someone under age 14. She also was the victim in the case against her boyfriend, who was found guilty of the same violation by engaging in sexual activity with her.

lol Did she have her Bat Mitzvah yet?  

Volvo Soccer mom’s do not have the right to change the constitution.  You have a right to control your kids if they are a minor… if you don’t then they can sleep with whoever they want.

Check out this interesting answer on Yedda

Yedda – People. Sharing. Knowledge.What is this feeling? What do I do about it?

I’m Jewish.  13 is the age for marriage.

 

I did check the question.  You should check the rules of Yedda.  The THREAD isn’t over. 

 

You should get this girl’s parents permission of course, but it is perfectly legal and healthy for you to marry a girl if you really do love her.  People might tell you that you are too young, but the desexualizing of our youth has led to many social cancers in our society.  The fact is that sex is natural and would help ground you to a sense of responsibility.  

What has happened to our culture is that a tyrannical bunch of people came to power in the 70’s claiming that they knew better then five thousand years of cultural and religious experts like Rabbis and other clergy.  This is a mistake.  It is no wonder that these same doctors prescribed young men like yourself Prozac and other drugs when the simple fact of the matter was that Generation X was sexually repressed.  It is time to reject Blue State tyranny and help you accomplish real love.  It is attainable, but it isn’t politically correct with the Gloria Steinems who fear it.  It is going to be hard for you because you have to understand that sexuality is tantamount to power in our culture and some elders will fear you, but know that it is fear that is betraying them and you will be strong if you stand for the one you care for.
