You Can Be Arrested For Annoying A Child?

Pasadena, CA

Apparently, yes, you can.

Russell Jackson, 46, of Pasadena, was arrested on suspicion of misdemeanor child annoying. You read that right. Child annoying.

Seems the law has a different idea of what annoys a child than I do. When I was a child being called names was annoyance enough and I never got to get anyone arrested. Of course, no one tried to ply me with alcohol, show me porn and get me naked, either.

You lived a sheltered life.

If you can be arrested for annoying a child and word of this gets out then every parent who ever told their kid to clean their room or eat their veggies will be under arrest.
