Should adults be held accountable for their unacceptable comments or behavior as teenagersr?

Yes, these actions/statements should be considered when assessing adults
No, things that happen as teenagers should be looked at as 'boys (or girls) will be boys'
I believe there is a middle ground, let me explain.

Last week Harvard rescinded the acceptance of a student from Parkland Hight School who had made extreme racist statements in a private group online.

This Harvard-bound young man was a pro-gun student and had made his views well known. Harvard knew of his pro-gun positions and accepted him into the school. However, when word came to them of his strong racist views, they said he was no longer welcome. Is he a racist who will not reform or is he a victim? What leads Harvard to rescind admission? Racism, plagiarism — and killing your mom. See story: http://snips.ly/78RKE9

Long ago, Patti Hearst was a teenager when abducted by the Symbionese Liberation Army. She was found guilty of bank robbery and given a 35 year sentence--which was later commuted and she was eventually pardoned. Her case is now a reference point for "Stockholm Syndrome". She was a teen. Was she a victim or a criminal or both?

Supreme court nominee, Brett M. Kavanaugh, was accused of attacking a young woman when he was a drunk teenager at a party and he and his best friend bragged about non-stop drunken episodes. Should this behavior be tolerated? Is it "boys will be boys" as Kavanaugh stated? Brett Kavanaugh and the Sexist Double Standard of Being Held Accountable for Your Actions http://snips.ly/YZ43

Companies are now warning potential hires that they will be looking at all their social media network to see if their are any warning flags about racism, sexism, homophobia or other intolerances.

What do you think?

  • Should teenagers be held responsible for their actions and words forever as adults?
  • Do you have a solution for this potentially serious problem?
  • Is there a balance?
  • Do you have other examples? Either way, please share.
  • What role do parents play?


Editor's Note: We welcome comments, posts, and informed debate from a wide range of perspectives. Personal attacks, insulting/ vulgar posts, or repetitious/ false tirades have no place and can result in moderation or banning.
Civility — Clear-minded criticism is welcome, but play the ball and not the person. This includes speculation about motives or what ‘sort of person’ someone is. Civility, gentle humor, and staying on topic are superior debating tools.
Relevance — Please maintain focus on the topic at hand. Do not attempt to solve big problems in a single comment or to offer as fact what simply are opinions.
Ponder before you post — It’s bad form to dominate a discussion either by multiple posts in a row or too many posts in a given forum.

They need to learn young that people, firms, colleges will look for discriminators too make and justify decisions to hire and fire. The military tolerates tattoo until they need a discriminator to pick who should be separated. Firms think performance is more important than education until they need a discriminator.
I have known young people who have juiced their Facebook page to impress their peers.
Not a good idea

If they committed a murder, yes.

If they were sexually aggressive (and did not commit rape or assault), No.

If they committed a racial slur or said something offensive, never - not at any age (beyond the impact to their personal reputation).

Correction: He was falsely accused.

No one is above the law, and no one is beneath the law as well

Harvard can pick and choose whoever they want, for any reason. It's a private institution, (although the eight Ivies collect more in Government grants than tuition each year), so I suppose it's public money

The young man is better off without Harvard, it's not the other way around.

I know you are desperate for a win. You have been so wrong. We are not at war yet, and the Straits are not closed yet. You need to pray that we remain that way.
