New Hanover County Sheriff’s spokesman Sgt. Jerry Brewer says the crimes, involving two 12-year-old boys, happened sometime between Friday and Sunday.

Brewer says Timothy Grant Shaw II, 17, is charged with second-degree sexual exploitation of a minor, third-degree sexual exploitation of a minor, second-degree sex offense of a child, disseminate obscene material and nine counts of first-degree sexual offense of a child.

The immediate connection between sexual offense and homosexuality is a gross misconception. Clearly, this comment is riddled with ignorance and will do much harm. Regardless of the numerous grammatical errors showing obvious lack of education, the comment regarding BSA ‘caving to liberals’ should be removed for its inappropriate content.

It is not WWAY’s fault that this young man has been accused. It is not their responsibility to spare his feelings or those of his schoolmates. And they certainly cannot help the timing of this story.
