A mother left her six year old son with a complete stranger on board a bus which was stopped by police so they could arrest her for shoplifting items from the local pharmacy. The mother was seen boarding the bus with two children but only had one child with her when she was arrested.
The police and the mother both failed in their duty to protect both children by allowing her six year son to be handed over to a complete stranger on board the bus therefore endangering the child's safety and welfare, who knows what the complete stranger would have done with him. Both mother and the police should be condemned for their actions or lack of them.
It was a happy ending though because the mother gave the complete stranger her son's mates address and asked that he be dropped off there. He was dropped off at his mates place to relief of his mother and police when they went to pick him up, he was unharmed, very lucky indeed.
