HAVANA TIMES – In Italy, outrage is mounting after a judge cleared a school employee of groping a 17-year-old student, arguing the assault didn’t constitute a crime because it lasted less than 10 seconds. The student from a Rome high school reported the 66-year-old employee after the incident last year. He admitted to touching the student without consent, but claimed it was a “joke.” Social media users have responded by posting videos in which they grope themselves for 10 seconds, accompanied by hashtags which translate to #10seconds and #briefgroping.
