Twenty or thirty years ago this kid would have had a crowd round him to help him. Somebody would have given him bus fare and put him on a bus, or they would have had a whip round for a taxi.!!
Nowadays, if you even smile at a child sitting alone, all you hear are black helicopters and SWAT Teams arriving to arrest you!!! So is it any wonder that the kid was left alone, being as dangerous as an unexploded bomb????
