I have just heard a snippet of news on the radio which, to me, is a very sad indictment on today’s society.

A grandmother has recently spent a night in a police cell for slapping a ten-year-old boy. She confronted a group of teenagers outside her house and asked them not to keep kicking a ball into her garden. She was met with a tirade of verbal abuse by several teenagers with pieces of wood in their hands.

She says that her reputation is in tatters, even though she was not eventually charged. My guess is that her night in the cells was far more traumatic for her than the slap was for the ten-year-old who probably deserved it!


About Mel Griffiths

I live and work in Nottingham, England and am blind. This blog is often centred around things that happen to me because of being blind. This is my space to write and sometimes people will disagree with what I write, but its the one place I have in which to be frank and honest. I also like to reflect on the funnier side of life from time to time.
