Zero Tolerance for Child Sex

The young girl was found guilty of child molesting after she encouraged a boy of seven to touch himself sexually

Breda, The Netherlands

Het Parool, 25 March 2009

News reported today in Het Parool indicates that the country whose police so infamously embraced the popular Nazi[1] ideals under Hitler[2] apparently has found a new cause to believe in. With zero-tolerance for children who exhibit behavior inspired by ideas which they are exposed to daily in the media and in the culture around them, children who engage in sex play are now being prosecuted by some Dutch legal authorities.

A girl of thirteen has been sentenced to community service work and probation. The young girl was found guilty of child molesting after she encouraged a boy of seven to touch himself sexually at a time when other children could observe his action.

On the same day, a boy of thirteen was sentenced to incarceration in a juvenile facility, to be followed by probation and mandatory therapy. His offense? He placed his mouth on the penis of his younger brother, aged ten years. The boys' horrified mother reported them to the police.

Both cases illustrate childish offenses that are normally handled by competent parents and school authorities. Instead, the oldest youngsters involved have begun their lives believing themselves to be criminal sex offenders, and the youngest believing they are now infected with some horrible mental disease from which they may never recover.

The court apparently found it necessary to defend its choice of legal intervention by preaching about the grave harm that had been done to the young lads. As usual, the sermon was offered in lieu of asking the prosecution to provide evidence of exactly what that harm might be, or how it compares with the harm done by the legal actions taken in response.

One can only suppose that the same popular wisdom that had accepted Nazism is once again considered guidance enough for some in Dutch justice.

Notes:

  1. Nazi stands for the National Socialist Party, which was enthusiastic about regulating sex and other behavior it found immoral. Decades ahead of its time, the National Socialist party embraced zero-tolerance and imposed legal sanction on many popular issues of the day. It was among the first to try various smoking bans, impose an age of consent for sex set at 21 years, and outlaw a broader range of sexual acts:
    "The 1935 statute removed the previous qualifier (which prohibited anal sex, so that the law could be interpreted as applying) in a much broader sense simply as lewdness, leading to the possibility of punishment for acts as mild as kissing, fondling, or mutual masturbation that previously would not have been considered criminal." Paragraph 175
  2. "The Dutch police proved in the main to be willing helpers of the German occupation forces, secret police and SS in their hunt to track down and deport Dutch Jews." wsws.org by Elisabeth Zimmermann, in an article based on Nazi rule and Dutch collaboration, by Gerhard Hirschfeld.
