Historically both adults and juveniles were tried in the same courts and if convicted they both served out their sentences in the very same facilities.
Media When the story of Luke Heimlich broke a few days ago, I patted the Oregonian on the back and said job well done. Reporting sexual assault of a star jock, going up against a powerful institution, and talking about a prevalent yet taboo subject all seemed like noble moves on the surface.
My opinion changed decisively on Friday, when John Canzano wrote this piece. Canzano telling Heimlich, an adult who has no pending criminal charges, and by all accounts an adult who has been a model student since arriving on campus, what is best for his future.
If Canzano was simply upset and felt the original punishment was too lenient, then writing a piece saying so would have been appropriate. But I do know what Heimlich should do today. It was at this moment I sensed we had a virtue-signaling, self-aggrandizing, self-righteous, high-horse hit piece on our hands.
For what active crime? As widely reported, Heimlich pleaded to certain charges and served the punishment that the courts, not John Canzano, deemed appropriate.
My advice for anyone upset with a verdict, yet not a direct party in said verdict: Become a true advocate through meaningful causes that enact change. How many of their victims has John reached out to for stories? The State of Oregon as a whole has 28, registered sex offenders.
Again, how many of these victims has he reached out to? There is strong evidence, from psychologists acknowledged by the Oregonian themselves, and also strengthened via anecdotes shared by my readers, which I will post at the end of this articlethat suggest making victims relive the experience is actually worse for them.
So what does John do? He supports the publication of this story on the eve Heimlich is set to pitch the biggest game of his life. The story, of course, would be picked up by National papers, placing National attention on Luke, but more importantly, on the victim Canzano claims to care about most.
In fact, his words ring hollow, and the self-righteous nature of the piece screams of a man reacting emotionally in a way that just happens to benefit his newspaper. On top of that, the entire world would know I was molested.
Canzano never explains how this helps the victim he claims to care about so much. One would think a sincere, caring individual would follow up and ask how much his article has helped. Yet, as of today, there is no article where the mother is quoted saying how this story has helped her daughter.
Even to the point he contradicts himself continuously. Canzano opens himself up to examples of contradiction via the firm stance he took on the issue.
A football team in Oregon no less.
If you read the article, he seems to view it as an uplifting redemption story. In the same article, he is open to giving LeGarrette Blount a second chance as well.
Well, because John is being contrarian to sell newspapers, and stories of redemption sell. Later, John writes this piecewhich is a feel good story about how Blount made the most of his second chance.
Again, this from the man who wrote: Yet, when Oregon basketball coach Dana Altman did the same with a alleged rape case, Canzano called for his head. A deeply religious man. You could say Canzano got more information and changed his mind.
Some days, being contrarian and bashing a coach gets the most attention, and some days writing a feelgood story sells the most papers. It leads to wildly inconsistent viewpoints and just exposes the man: It is truly sickening.
Virtue Signaling is defined as: One more piece of brilliant yellow journalism must be discussed.
Fans who were actually at the game confirm what was being cheered were general introductions. John compares the situation to Baylor or Penn State, two places where the institution was actively covering up ongoing criminal activity. So on that note, on to Danny Moran.
But the question with Moran is how he found those facts. He claims it was during a routine background check. But journalists must always follow the story where the facts lead us.JUVENILE ADULT COURT 2 Juvenile and Adult Courts: A Comparative Analysis “The criminal justice system is an interrelated set of agencies and organizations designed to control criminal behavior, to detect crime, and to apprehend, process, prosecute, punish, or rehabilitate criminal offenders” (Champion, , p.
