A popular 15-year-old student  has committed suicide after he reportedly faced expulsion and being placed on  the sex offenders’ register simply for streaking at a high school football  game.

Christian Adamek, from Huntsville, Alabama,  hanged himself on October 2, a week after he was arrested for running naked  across the Sparkman High football field during a game.

The teenager died two days later from his  injuries and on Wednesday, friends and family gathered at a memorial service as  they struggled to comprehend the beloved student’s death.

A video of Adamek streaking during a game  against a rival team was posted on YouTube hours after the event and students  took to Twitter to call him a ‘legend’.

‘Sparkman’s new slogan is gonna be “Welcome  to Sparkman High School, Home of Christian Adamek”,’ one student  wrote.

But school staff did not treat the situation  so lightly.

Sparkman High Principal Michael Campbell told  WHNT a day  before the suicide attempt that the teen could face major repercussions because  of his actions.

‘There’s the legal complications,’  Campbell  said. ‘Public lewdness and court consequences  outside of school with the legal  system, as well as the school  consequences that the school system has set  up.’

In Alabama, indecent exposure is linked to  the state’s sex offender laws, meaning that he could have found himself on the  sex offenders register due to the streaking.

Campbell added that that the incident was not  just a prank and needed to be treated seriously.

Sparkman High administrators even recommended  that Adamek face a hearing in the Madison County court system to  determine if  formal charges would be filed, WHNT reported.

Adamek had also been disciplined by the  school district but the details had not been made public.

The day before the suicide attempt, the  principal had confirmed that Adamek was not at school and the teenager’s sister  suggested on Twitter that Adamek faced expulsion, reported.

Campbell declined to comment on Adamek’s  death but the Madison County school district issued a statement saying it had  ‘received word that a Sparkman High School student has passed away’.

‘Our prayers and thoughts are with the family  during this time of bereavement,’ the statement read.

The messages on Twitter have now turned from  congratulatory to somber.

‘Praying for the Adamek family. Christian was  so funny and nice. He will be missed by so many,’ one girl wrote.

The family – Adamek leaves behind his mother,  Angela, and a sister and a brother – shared photos and memories online of the  fun-loving teen, who was pictured posing and grinning at the camera.

At Wednesday’s memorial service, his Boy  Scout Troop master, David Silvernail, said Adamek was a popular teenager who  always had a smile on his face.

‘There are two kinds of people in the world;  ones that brighten the room when they walk in and those that don’t,’ he  said.

‘He was one that brightened the room when he  walked in. That’s what I’ll always remember about Christian.’

His mother, Angela, thanked her son’s friends  and said they could learn from his life, reported.

‘Remember to smile, don’t be afraid to do  something goofy and remember the consequences of those actions, ask for help  when you need it, ask for help if you think your friends need it if you don’t  know what to do, be quirky, be happy, be smart,’ she said.

  1. At his age, playing a prank like this was childish, but the school district should not had treated this case in an All American Against Evil attitude. Teenagers are teenagers. They need guidance. Rebellious behaviors are nurtured over time, so are well behaved attitudes. High school is a stage of teenage growth, and teachers and counselors have the responsible to provide proper leadership, mentoring, and guidance to all students toward a bright future. Penalizing him with sex offender registration is non sense. It was not the best solution to guide him toward the right path. The school district needs to b penalize for his death. 3rd degree murder.


  2. This is a very sad story.. Someone so young and innocent died because of a prank which in no way did anyone get hurt from it…. I understand the school has rules and they must be followed, but that is just where this should of stayed is with in the school system. If people would stop posting everything on the internet the courts system might not of had to get involved… Just saying
    As far as for you Peter Nolan ( if your not lying about your name) just because one woman lies doesn’t mean we all do if that was the case we could say the samething about men… not every woman in AMERICA acts like the woman your trying to make us all out to be… I think you should grow up and not post all your drama for someone breaking your heart or taking your house…. Oh yeah why is it your house when you both lived there and paid the bills… Just asking… Get over it !!!!!!


    • Candy,

      “As far as for you Peter Nolan ( if your not lying about your name) just because one woman lies doesn’t mean we all do”

      And here is about the THIRD WOMAN to try the “ALL WOMEN” lie on ONE THREAD. Do you have ANY idea how much you western women ALL ACT THE SAME???

      You almost ALL try the SAME LIES. “Not all women are like that”,,,,well I never said they were. I said WESTERN WOMEN are liars and hypocrites in the 99.9% majority. And that is a FACT that we are telling the young men.

      “Oh yeah why is it your house when you both lived there and paid the bills… Just asking”

      Because I was the ONLY ONE PAYING ALL THE BILLS. Indeed, my wife said “just because I signed the mortgage does not mean I have to pay for the house.” Gee…how convenient.

      And also because she refused to work, against my wishes, for a sixteen years of an 18 year marriage…and also because she BEGGED ME to take her back in 2002 and she made a deal that she would take HER HALF OF THE HOUSE THEN AS CREDIT and then continued to refuse to labour to pay for herself for another five years consuming HER HALF OF THE HOUSE.

      So no matter HOW you slice or dice it…my ex lied, lied, lied, lied, and lied again. She refused to work. She refused to make her best efforts for her children. She committed the crimes of perjury, kidnapping, extortion, theft and child abuse. She was also a prostitute while she had PLENTY of money to live on. She abused her children physically, emotionally and pshycologically. And STILL you women PROMOTE AND SUPPORT THIS BEHAVIOR BASED OB FEMALE IDOLATRY WHILE ATTACKING THE HONEST MAN OF HONOUR AND INTEGRITY.

      I tell young men today “5% is the new 50% if you are a man”.

      I tell young men today “NEVER, EVER TRUST ANYTHING A WOMAN TELLS YOU”

      I tell young men women are users and abusers in the west. They HATE YOU. They DESPISE YOU. They will do whatever they can to DESTROY YOU. And they will have absolutely no qualms about it and the VAST MAJORITY of the other women will join in.

      And then I give them my second book The Truth Be Told that PROVES what I just said..and they thank me profusely for doing so.

      You women were well advised to listen to me when I invited you to the table to talk.

      By the way. A good example? A man hating bitch got a man fired from his job for making a joke about domestic violence this week. I denounced her on my YT channel peternolan1109. So now feminist bitches have had my YT channel closed down.

      Yeah….you feminist bitches REALLY believe in rights…..except when it is a mans right to denounce a bitch who got an innocent man fired from his job…THEN you want to get out YT channels closed down…and all you other MAN-HATING BITCHES think it is just fine to violate mens right to freedom of expression…just like you think it is fine to violate our right to live in our houses, to raise our children, to run our businesses.

      You western women are the most disgusting, despicable, man hating bitches on the face of this planet. And I am so glad I live in Germany where I do not have to interact with man hating bitches….here in Germany? Women are just lovely.

      So go ahead….get out YT channels shut down. We are creating man-tube. Go ahead…get our facebooks shut down…we are creating man-book….go ahead…..destroy our lives, steal our children, lie about us, slander us, hate on us….we can take it.

      Now…can YOU take the fact we are going to wage a WAR OF RETURN until you beg for your offer of unconditional surrender to be accepted? Are you willing to FIGHT AND DIE for your privilege of committing crimes against us? Because I can assure you that MANY MEN are willing to fight and KILL to defend their life, their liberty and property.

      We asked you just to LEAVE US ALONE….and you can’t even do that…fine…so WAR it is. And you man hating western bitches are going to rue the day you ever provoked men into a WAR OF RETURN against you. You really are.


    • “Critical Theory” can be applied to the ideology of feminism; Peter has done so and left little recourse for argument. A lack of power can be an advantage.

      Feminism certainly is an ideology – have you really never taken a ‘womyns studies’ course and heard the party line?

      The bias in family courts against men is also long-standing and well-documented.

      He admitted women have done wrong, so it’s not clear how your ‘blame the victim’ response is anything but proof of his criticism.


  3. Getting into trouble for something like this is one thing, but being expelled,,and put on a sex offender list is more than a little harsh.Now this poor kids dead all because of how were all supposed to conform to what they say is acceptable and whats not..Well who really to say whats acceptable and whats not.It”s OK to have open gay relationships on TV and same sex marriage throughout or country but this isn’t. I think all of these so called Americans don”t even know why this country was established in the first place. We really need to step back and look at what we’ve let this country become and then we might think a little differently next time.My heart and prayers go out to this kid parents and I hope these ass holes on the school board there will think twice next time.


  4. Well first off RIP you poor young soul and deepest sympathy to the family and friends that are left behind. What a complete and tragic over-reaction on many parts.
    @Peter Nolan: Dude, seriously sthu …you sound hysterical. I’m fairly certain most women don’t hate men. I’m thinking that it is just You they may not care for. I sincerely suggest that you consider therapy before your ballistic behavior surpasses internet rants.


    • Yendi,
      “I’m fairly certain most women don’t hate men”.

      I am certain of that too. For example I live in Germany and women who live here are just fine. It is only WESTERN WOMEN who think that they should be able to commit crimes with impunity against men. And they are a small minority of all women that we can well do without.

      Check it out. You can not name ONE WOMAN OF NOTE in the entire western english speaking world who has written a paper or made a presentation saying women should be held accountable for their crimes on an equal before the law basis to men AND is willing to sit on an all womens jury in an all womens court to make it so.

      If you think you can find such a woman? Please…by all means NAME HER.

      I have searched for FIVE YEARS…and I can not find one. What does that tell you? It tells you western women HATE MEN in the VAST MAJORITY because to take the position you should be able to CRIMINALLY VICTIMISE MEN with complete impunity is hatred.

      Now…if you find the TRUTH sounds “hysterical”? That is YOUR problem.

      But you can rest assured there is not even ONE such woman in the ENTIRE western english speaking world….so much for wanting “equal rights” eh?
