Criminalization of children – Harry Kopyto to address the public in Newmarket about criminal issues concerning children
This Saturday, March 1, 2014 at 6pm, Harry Kopyto will deliver a lecture in Newmarket to an audience of concerned parents and children.
The Canadian Maltese Charitable Service Trust is hosting a public event where Harry Kopyto will speak about the grave conditions children are facing in a society that is increasingly criminalizing them, according to a number of organizations such as A Voice For Men, Canada Court Watch and National Coalition for Men. Children, usually boys, are facing difficulties at school where children as young as 5 are criminalized for normal behaviour, according to Dean Esmay, operational manager of A Voice For Men.
Vernon Beck of Canada Court Watch has been documenting numerous abuses against children over a 20 year period and says it has been getting worse year by year. Dr. Miles Groth, Professor of psychology at Wagner College in New York, says, “The most important thing is public awareness, especially about how boys are treated in school. I see them when they have gotten to college, and more and more are withdrawn and distant.”
Harry Kopyto will dilate on the serious conditions facing the public, particularly boys, who are criminalized at a very young age. Recently, a boy, barely 12 years old was charged criminally for non criminal behaviour at Notre Dame Catholic School in Newmarket. In Colorado Springs, 6 year old Hunter Yelton was suspended from school for kissing his girlfriend’s hand. The action was noted as sexual harassment on Hunter’s school record.
Kopyto delivered his first speech at the age of ten. He began advocating for the rights of his fellow students in High School. Kopyto’s legal career spans 40 years advocating for the rights of his fellow man, adhering according to his admirers to strict morals and principals. Harry remains steadfast in his life long ambition to advocate and fight for the underdog, the weak, the oppressed, the old, children, the disabled, the minority, the underprivileged, the poor and anyone who was subject to discrimination in any and every way..
