Police allege that Michael Blackburn Jr., of the first block of Warrington Road, sent sexually explicit texts to a 15-year-old girl and had “indecent contact” with her May 31-June 1.The article did not include the man’s age.
However, by doing a search of the man’s name (Michael Blackburn, Jr.) we can get a decent idea that he probably is the same (Michael Blackburn, Jr.) mentioned in this story from 2012 where he is identified as 18. Furthermore, a commenter in the comment section of The Patriot-News article says that, “He will be 20 this year.”
Therefore, it is reasonable to assess that Blackburn was 19 when he allegedly corrupted the 15-year old minor.
Will a #FreeMichael narrative be generated and will there be an outpouring of support for Blackburn? If not, why not?
After all, a large amount of people have rallied behind #FreeKate and insisted that an 18-year-old woman is being “persecuted” for having sex with a 14-year-old girl.
So will a large number of people rally behind a 19-year-old man who allegedly sent “explicit texts” and had “indecent contact” with a 15-year-old girl?
