Today, two aggressive police officers appeared at my door informing me that a complaint was filed about my 18 year-old son having "inappropriate relations" with a 16 year-old. We live in England. I had to Google the law to prove to them this was legal. FML

I wondered who filed this report, because it's a wonder they were even smart enough to write it from the start. And file a report about the cops, that's not legal of them to do.

Wait pedophiles are legal in England?

@38 A pedophile is someone who is sexually attracted to prepubescent children. What you're thinking of is an ephebophile or hebephile: someone who's attracted to adolescents, generally between the ages of 15-19, and even then that's not what this is because they were both within that age range.

Yep, I'd definitely report this incident right away. It's frightening that the people meant to uphold the law don't know the law. Best to make sure that higher authorities are aware.

I doubt anything would happen unless OP's girlfriend and her mom decided to charge him with rape and the girlfriend also communicated discomfort with the situation (IE she felt compelled to have sex).

You'd really think that it would be REQUIRED that the individuals enforcing the laws in any country would be educated regarding said laws while in the police academy, but here in America that's not the case, at least it didn't used to be. Physical agility training, yes - weapons training, yes - confrontation training, yes - actual study of the laws - no. ????

File a report. They should know the law before they harass people like that. It's good you've been home, maybe it could've gone worse if your son was alone.

That has to suck

You really copped them on that!

It was swell of you to take the time to educate two under privileged folk on the errors of their chosen profession. You should have suggested to them that they write all these rules down someplace so if they have any future questions they can look them up.

This pretty much sums up England in a post. ?
