The six ways we talk about a teenage girl’s age - Salon.com
"Last week, Montana District Judge G. Todd Baugh declared a troubled, now dead, 16-year-old girl culpable for her own rape. (The girl was just 14 when the crime occurred.) While in the process of reducing her rapist’s 15-year sentence to 30 days, he explained that the victim was 'older than her chronological age,' and 'as much in control of the situation' as the 49-year-old teacher found guilty of raping her.
...
"This happens with dulling regularity, and has for years.
...
"An adolescent girl isn't allowed to be 'her age.' Indeed, she doesn't actually have one age but many that people assess and judge as she goes through her day. When it comes to sexual assault, consent and justice, and individual girl's 'age' is especially a matter of social construction.
...
"First, there's her chronological age.
Second, there's the age her body looks — which, for too many people in and out of the justice system, apparently makes a difference in rape.
Third, there's emotional age.
Fourth, there's commercially profitable age.
Fifth, there's media age.
Lastly, there's the age at which a girl is portrayed as 'fair game' for older men."

The Myth of the Teenage Temptress: Or Why A Young Girl Can Not Consent to Sex With An Adult Man | xoJane
"[O]n Monday, Stacey Rambold, a Senior High teacher convicted of raping 14-year-old Cherice Morales, who later committed suicide, was sentenced to spend just 30 days in jail. The judge justified his decision in part by saying he listened to recorded statements given by Morales before her death and believes that while she was a troubled youth, she was 'as much in control of the situation' as Rambold.

"The judge also said Morales was 'older than her chronological age.'

"Yep, you read that right. A 14-year-old 'troubled youth' who eventually committed suicide (as a direct result of the sexual assault and its aftermath, according to her mother) had 'control over the situation' with a 49-year-old rapist. But don't worry, this wasn't 'the kind of rape most people think about,' according to Judge G. Todd Baugh. 'It was not a violent, forcible, beat-the-victim rape, like you see in the movies.' He generously added that 'It was nonetheless a rape...and this should not have occurred.'"

Twitter Ordered to Release OWS Protester's Data or Be Fined for Contempt | Threat Level | Wired.com
"The court ordered Twitter to release the data or hand over its confidential earnings statements from the last two quarters so the court can determine how much of a fine to levy against the company.

"Twitter wrote that Harris’ tweets are protected by the Fourth Amendment “because the government admits that it cannot publicly access them, thus establishing that Defendant maintains a reasonable expectation of privacy in his communications.” The Twitter accounts in question have been closed and are no longer publicly available.

"But even if Harris’ tweets were publicly available, Twitter points out that the U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that “public information which would allow law enforcement to draw mere inferences about a citizen’s thoughts and associations are entitled to Constitutional protection, thus establishing that a citizen’s substantive communications are certainly entitled to the same protection.”"

The US schools with their own police | World News | the Guardian
"Such cases are not limited to Texas. In one notorious instance in California, a school security officer broke the arm of a girl he was arresting for failing to clear up crumbs after dropping cake in the school canteen. In another incident, University of Florida campus police tasered a student for pressing Senator John Kerry with an awkward question at a debate after he had been told to shut up."
