I am totally on you side, "Hey, Get a Clue" is an idiot. However, I must disagree with one point of yours. I definitely would not call a 13 year old boy, a young man. That is just a difference of opinion. I am not saying yours is wrong, but I tend to think that at 18 years old you are a young man. The early 20's your entering manhood. It all depends on the individual too. Boys are slow to mature, Girls mature quicker. Some boys never mature, even in there 50's. Anyhow, everyone is entitled to their own opinion. I'm sure we would get mixed feelings on that topic.
<quoted text>
I do agree also with what your saying, and yes boys mature (much) slower then girls, and I can see the theory with a 13 y/o being a teenager and 18 a young man. I can see it, but no personally I dont agree, partially because of what be careful was saying also. To me he is a young man, at 13 boys are growing, learning about themselves, first girlfriends, boundaries etc. We live in a dog eat dog world, and lord only knows what this world will be like in a few more years with war, gangs, violence and so on. As far as im concerned my son needs to be be ready for this not so friendly world so society doesnt chew him up and spit him out. He no longer has the luxury to be a "kid" anymore. Its unfortunate, but its real. So with that we try to teach him that he must be on point, responsible, ahead of the game. He will be a fine man by 18. I feel that if he is not we have failed as teachers, and failed to provide him with the knowledge he will need to make it.

She wasn't according to my wife's cousin that went to the same school. She wasn't hiding the fact either.

i think the problem is that everyone whos commenting either knows nothing about his history or has had a bad experience with the rapozas. i went to school with him and his brother and they seemed okay, but they were in special classes and you could tell they were kind of troubled, but knowing zach, he probably believed whatever that girl told him. not sure what he was thinking by going to queens, they probably wanted to run away or something. If she is lying about any sexual contact, she is taking a cheap shot.

The real problemo is a 20 year old was involved with a 13 year old. The court will eventually hear the evidence concerning the charges of second-degree rape, unlawful imprisonment and endangering the welfare of a minor and a jury will pass judgment on what crimes were or were not committed unless of course Zachary cops a plea. Then the whole discussion here is mute.

Haven't heard a thing concerning how this case is proceeding.

You are an annoying little punk who runs her mouth on the message board to get attention from a bad situation. Did your mom and dad not hug you enough growing up? And you're wrong I'm not a spoiled little brat I am an adult which I can see you are not. One minute your apologizing and feeling sorry the next your ready to string him up. Get a clue girlie and shut your trap. Karmas a bitch and you'll get yours for running your mouth.

Do me a favour guys. I just came across this website to try and find some help in dealing with being raped myself when I was thirteen. I am now 34 and am still trying to come to terms with the fact that I did something that caused me so much pain. Kids think they know it all, but they dont. I was in a bad situation which I shouldn't have been in, but I didn't deserve what happened to me. I didn't know what sex was all about and what it meant. The 21 year old guy who raped me must have known I didn't want it, but I can't recall anything about it. All I remember was that somehow I ended up in a room with this guy and was too scared to move. I remember the pain at the time, and it has effected me forever. Please don't blame this girl for being on My Space. She was just following what she sees in the media, tv, music videos. She wouldn't have seen it from an adult perspective and known the dangers. 13 year olds may act like adults but mentally they are still children. They cannot be held responsible for their actions.

I to know this kid and he is mentally handicap i dont think he knows the diffrence between right and wrong. He was never in main stream classes and graduated late. In my opinion what happend was wrong and there is no excuse for it but this kid does not have the mental capacity to know better.
