Some actions have serious consequences

I am sick of people who get into trouble of their own making and then are portrayed as victims.

Take the case of Genarlow Wilson, a former Douglas County student who is doing ten years in prison for having oral sex with an underage girl in a hotel at a wild New Year's Eve party in 2003, which he and his fellow geniuses had videotaped. This was after having sex earlier with a 17-year-old.

Harsh law? Maybe. Bad judgment on Wilson's part? Absolutely.
