icLiverpool - Police quiz boy, 10, for calling schoolfriend 'gay': "A father criticised a police force today for launching an investigation after his ten-year-old son allegedly called a schoolfriend “gay” in an email.

Company director Alan Rawlinson said he was astounded after two police officers arrived at his home in Bold Heath, Cheshire, to speak to his son George.

The officers were called earlier this month after a parent complained that George had called her son a “gay boy” in an email."

I guess things have changed in some ways. Once upon a time the cops would have turned up at the OTHER kid's place - "We have good reason to believe your son is a sexual prevert, ma'm"
I guess that's progress, of sorts.

Well, it's a change if not progress.
