Did school bureaucrats go too far? Did the system treat Christian Adamek, 15, unfairly?
The story can be summed up as follows. Christian played a streaking prank at school. (Where you run around naked). That got him put on the national sex offender registry. And he later took his own life.
A popular 15-year-old student has committed suicide after he reportedly faced expulsion and could have been placed on the sex offenders’ register simply for streaking at a high school football game.
Christian Adamek, from Huntsville, Alabama, hanged himself on October 2, a week after he was arrested for running naked across the Sparkman High football field during a game.
The teenager died two days later from his injuries and on Wednesday, friends and family gathered at a memorial service as they struggled to comprehend the beloved student’s death.
A video of Adamek streaking during a game against a rival team was posted on YouTube hours after the event and students took to Twitter to call him a ‘legend’.
