Law and Order


One child was dragged, hit and choked
The forum of three kids (8,9 and 12yrs old) took up the case
They listened to all, called witnesses and solved the case amicably
They did what I would have done – ask questions, question their actions, advise them of safety and so on.
The only difference was that they did not feel the responsibility on their shoulders.
They took it as an experience and that’s all.
I would have taken as “safety issue” and that’s all
They questioned the violence as a mean of expressions to solve the issue
I would have also questioned but with emotions of anxiety.
Now that we have law and order miniseries, I took up the job of documenting the cases for the court.
