Those times are hard, really hard. Even 9-years old kids are dangerous criminals and threaten the well-being and perennity of our societies. The one featured in the following video made himself guilty of joyriding in local trains, such a major offence. Fortunately, courageous persons, such as this guard, show courage and abnegation and, notwithstanding the risk for their own lives, manage to neutralize those violent individuals with the appropriate means.
Seriously, what kind of threat could that kid possibly represent? Did an 90kg+ guard really need to sit on him, banging his head against a marmor floor, pressing his hand against the kid’s mouth? The worst part is that the police first made the on-the-spot decision not to start an inquiry in this matter, before backing pityfully against public uproar and pressure.
As far as I could read in the media, the kid and his friend are placed in a home for children who need special care, and were having unallowed time-off. Still, the violence this jerk displayed was totally out of proportion.
But enough of bad news for the time being. My next post will be on my recent readings.
