Never mind those ACT scores, Colorado’s children are smart. They watch TV and talk with their friends. They know police have a strong inclination to believe Sexual Assault on a Child allegations in Denver and Douglas County, C.R.S. 18-3-405. They know that prosecutors will believe them. What kid would lie about such a horrible thing, right?
After abandoning any moral right and wrong teaching in our schools, kids have no reason not to lie. If a girl or boy want revenge or want to get their new step-dad out of the house, it is a simple matter to allege sexual assault. This charge is magical. No physical proof is needed, and there is a strong tendency to “believe the children”. Kids know it when they have a great tool at their disposal, and they are using it in Colorado.
The government in Arapahoe, Jefferson and Adams County is on board too. From police to district attorneys, from judges to sex based probation officers, no one wants to take a chance on letting an accused sex offender have the presumption of innocence in Colorado. It is too dangerous. Careers can be lost in a moment if a person offends under their supervision, so government workers are quick to impose harsh restrictions on the accused. These “sex offender” restrictions include not living in the same house as a child – which is a gold mine for the child wanting to rid him or herself of a strict step-parent.
Sexual assault / sexual assault on a child allegations are easy to make and require no proof other than a teary eyed child. How can juries in Weld and Larimer County convict without evidence solely on the word of a child? There is a presumption that children are innocent and lack knowledge of sexual behaviors. There is a belief among morally based jurors that children would never lie about something so serious. I believe citizens are yet to learn the consequences of a generation taught that there is no right or wrong, that there is no God, and that there is nothing more important than “me”. We are yet to see the full implications of these morally bankrupt decisions.
So, here we are, where law makers, district attorneys and courts have put kids in control. Adults should fear children. Adults should run from programs like “Big Brothers,” “Big Sisters,” Sunday School teaching, or anything else involving contact with kids. Kids are dangerous. Kids are to be feared. And our government has made it this way.
