Court records indicate that the teenager allegedly put his hands down the pants of his 14-year-old girlfriend while they were kissing. Because the alleged incidents occurred less than two months after Joshua turned 18, he has been charged with a fourth degree felony.
The girl’s father pleaded guilty earlier this year to trying to choke Joshua.
Mark Lunsford has been quoted as saying that his son’s arrest doesn’t compare with the pedophiles whom he has helped to put in prison. “We’re talking about Romeo and Juliet here, not some 36-year-old pervert following around a 10-year-old”, Lunsford told a Florida newspaper. He is not the boy’s custodial parent and the boy does not live with him.
When asked how he felt about his son being labeled a sex offender if he was convicted, Lunsford said that “we have to learn to distinguish between Romeo and Juliet and a predator. We need to redefine the term ‘sex offender’, not ‘predator’”.
I brought this up not to debate that issue. I want you to compare that to the comments AZU mmber Petra Luna made on 20/20 back on March 14, 2008 (The corrupted- justice link is a transcript of the segment):
http://www.abcnews.go.com/2020/Stossel (go to videos, look for "Vigilante Justice")
Stossel-- Arent some people on the registries kids who at age 16 had sex with another kid?
Peta Luna-- [rolls eyes] Yeah [sighs and shifts in chair] but that's not very likely, but it does happen and yes it-it-you know kids do end up you know one is right on the edge of the age and one is right on the edge of the age yes it does happen
Stossel-- They get put on the registry with 40 year old rapists
Petra Luna-- yeah but what are you gonna do? I mean its too bad that they have those things going on but its a necessary evil
Then, of course, AZU offers up this little gem:
"Watch for someone who defends an 18 year old for having sex with a 14 year old, then when asked the question "Would you have done it if she had been 12?" the response being "Oh NO, absolutely not, there must be a 'line' somewhere" Completely overlooking the fact that there WAS a line and it was crossed.
All those things are known as spin. Those are things you need to watch out for. Spin is an unethical manipulation of factual information to make something appear to mean something that in reality it does not mean.Spin is evil.Spin is enabling behavior.The Antis won't stand for it."
So AZU recognizes that the 18 year old having sexual contact with his 14 year old girlfriend on the 20/20 show was crossing a line. You have to watch for someone who defends this behavior. But yet, Mark Lunsford just did the same thing, stating his 18 year old son french kissing and fondling a 14 year old, and AZU is amazingly quiet about the issue.
"Hasn't the Lundsford family been through enough?" Daydreamer of Oz
So let me get this straight. You CONDEMNED Patty Wetterling, who has NEVER received closure for a kidnapped son, claiming she has a sex offender son. But Mark Lunsford has "suffered enough." If you goggle Patty Wetterling, you find no scandals attached to her name. However, if you google Mark Lunsfords name, a number of controversies will come up:
- Child Porn on his computer
- Questionable use of funds and gifts to the Jessica Marie Lunsford Foundation
- His recent lawsuit diected at the sheriff
- And don't forget the defense of his son after charged with a sex offense
Yet, they lambaste someone for questioning Lunsford's motives:
******* is a complete Sociopath and her recent actions illustrate just how "reformed" she is.What a sick example of psychology she is, attacking the parents of children who were murdered and sexually abused; harassing, threatening and libeling innocent people with allegations of child pornography and child molestation. Someone so senseless and devoid of boundaries belongs in either a prison or a mental hospital.jacey
Petra Luna's chief space cadet denounces anti-Lunsford sites, and states its perfectly okay to be involved in controversy.
"I don’t know anyone named Josh Junsford. But if you’re talking about Josh Lunsford he’s a perfect example of how very few people are put on the sex offender registry for having teenaged sex."
Well VigilantAnti, do you know him or not? Its not like it wasn't mentioned in every true crime, RSO, and curent events blog in the country
So why is it Lunsford hasn't been dragged through the ringer like they have done to so many others? Maybe this is the reason:
WASP "Women Against Sexual Predators" A new and vibrant proactive subcommittee called WASP has been added to the Jessica Marie Lunsford Foundation.For more information.Please contact Penny Verde at email@example.com or call 1.888.4jmllaw
Yep. Tracy Golden (WASP Ohio) is connected to Lunsford, Tracy is also connected to AZU. AZU is connected to PJ and Wikisposure. WASP Ohio contributes to both places. Xavier Von Erck posts comments at AZ. The sites link to one another very intimately, refer to each other, etc.
AZU warns us about people who defend 18 year olds who mess with 14 year olds, but they stand by their man Lunsford. Sounds a bit like hypocrisy to me. Either you CONDEMN an action or you DENOUNCE an action. Will AZU continue to stand by Mark Lunsford?
Hypocrisy is evil.
Hypocrisy is enabling behavior.
The anti-antis won't stand for it!
