Five minutes back I was waiting for an auto at the nearby signal.There was a small boy aged around 7-8 years crossing the road.He was wearing an oversized football jersey.He looked all tensed and in hurry when he saw a police patrol car parked some 10 meters next to where I was standing.
When he realized that the policemen were staring at him,he tried to hide something which was there in his trousers’ right pocket.I thought he stole something from somewhere.So I walked behind him to see whether he gets caught by the police or not.He tried to run when the policemen again stared at him and they caught him.
I didn’t know what to do so just stood next to them.The boy didn’t take his hands from the firmly covered pocket.The policemen asked him whether he stole something but he tried to run away from their hands.After grabbing him back they took THE thing from his pocket.It was a bottle of brandy.Upon asking he told that his father and friends were waiting for him to start their Sunday boozing.It was his father who gave money and sent him to the alcohol shop.WHAT THE #%&*?
Isn’t there any law to punish these people?
More than punishing the parents,I worry about the kid.Imagine the impact he had when caught by police and surrounded by people?Wouldn’t that stay deep inside his heart for long?
