The Criminalization of Everything

How did this guy get charged in the first place? A guy's driving down the road, a 14 year old girl walked in front of the car, he had to swerve to avoid hitting her. Then he got out of the car, grabbed her by the elbow, and lectured her about the danger of doing what she did.

He was charged with attempted kidnapping, child abduction [acquited], and unlawful restraint of a minor [guilty]. Now he has to register as a sex offender.

I give up.

Hat tip: A small victory.
