Is it any wonder that no one approached this child to make sure everything was ok?
According to the rag it is a damnation of all of us, and that a vigilant taxi-driver put all our world right.
Fact is, any concerned adult nowadays, would be fearful of being seen to approach a vulnerable child in such circumstances.
The world is in a really sorry state when genuinely concerned folk have to just carry on walking for fear of being accused of nasty stuff.
Wouldn,t be surprised to hear that the taxi driver is now under investigation for ,"Noticing", a young,obviously vulnerable child on the street.
Can just picture the scene:
Plod: ,"You have the right to remain silent.............blah, blah.....etc.
Taxi driver: "I just saw this little kid wandering around on his own................"
Plod: "What first brought your attention to this child. Were you out looking for children, and how did you know he was on his own"?
Taxi driver,(Or any other human being): "Feck off Plod. Thats the last time I even think of doing a good deed ever again".
