Turkey: Get them while they're young

That Turkey's newly enthroned President is not that keen on criticism has become abundantly clear by now (what with the purging of the police and judiciary, the arresting of journalists and such), though now we learn that his wrath for anyone insolent enough to badmouth him extends even to high-schools. A 16 year old student was recently arrested for offending him in a speech he made.

Also on the news: A 10 year old was sentenced to one year of community service for defiling a poster of Erdogan with a permanent marker; a 5 year old preschooler was locked in juvy for allegedly calling him doodoo and a 6 month infant was heavily fined for wailing when listening to one of his speeches (in Ottoman).
