Police Raids

Here's an attitude we want to avoid in this country! We all know that Central Methodist Mission was raided by police a couple of weeks ago. This prompted our minister and congregation to collect clothes for the mission. I was asked to drive to Central yesterday with the stuff collected. No hassle.

When I fetched my 9 year old son at lunchtime I asked him about his morning. Then he asked me how my trip to Central went. I casually answered that it had been fine. And then, out of the blue, as far as I was concerned, "Oh good," he said. "I was afraid that there would be another raid and that you would be shot."

Are we raising another generation with a fear of police brutality?
