ARE we so far gone that we are desensitised to a child running in-between cars all day long? As you come up the Third Avenue, Newton Park dip and you reach the robots that meet the William Moffet Expressway, there is a woman in a wheelchair, who parks herself in-between the lanes in the road and has who I assume to be her children run in-between cars begging for donations.
Surely this is a violation of numerous laws? Why has she not been arrested for reckless endangerment of her children? If something happens to her children, who would be liable – the motorist?
The mother? Or the government for failing to act in time?
Any person under the age of 18 who stands in the street should be arrested.
They should be placed in shelters and forced to attend school.
Every single child on the street is evidence that the government has given up on the very basic of laws.
