[Updated] Baby charged with Attempted Murder

20 posts in this topic

A nine-month-old boy has appeared in court in Pakistan on charges of planning a murder, threatening police and interfering in state affairs, it appears.

Baby Muhammad Mosa Khan is one of more than 30 people facing charges after a police raid to catch suspected gas thieves in the city of Lahore, The News website reports. Police say the suspects tried to murder security officers by pelting them with stones. But the Times of India newspaper quotes the infant's father as saying the group was protesting an electricity shortage.

If true, and I haven't investigated the story, then I have no words to describe the ineptitude of the relevant authorities... this will have to suffice...

Well at least the Superintendent that filed the charges has been suspended - you gotta wonder how far he really thought that line of prosecution was gonna be able to fly before it came back and hit him square in the face.

The baby doesn't look too bothered and neither does his father or the guy sitting next to them.

Obviously there has been a mistake, even the chief minister has seen this.

Chances are with all the hussle and bustle while arresting 30 people, the father just happened to bring the child along.

I considered this before posting the thread. The source is fairly reputable, but that does not grant immunity to playing a prank on it's readers. However, I suspect the case is genuine, and the infant was simply gathered up with the rest of the protestors and included in the charge before hot-heads had a chance to cool down.

ftr,

While the story does not provide all the details, my assumption would be the infant was with the mother/father when stones were thrown at the security people. It's possible the parent also gave the infant a stone to throw.

If the story is true..

I was thinking along the lines of the bolded as well. It might have been just all names collected on the spot, then later sort it out in court sort of affair.

I was thinking the italics could be possible.. I also had the notion that perhaps the parents could have given the infants name in the hopes of exactly this sort of ruse and media coverage that has been brought to UM.

Best to stop criminals early. Clearly, this nine month old is a hazard to the community and should be dealt with now before he does something worse. :no:

It's a good thing the Pakistani government is cracking down on those evil babies. You don't want to wait until it gets to this point:

From the article I read, the police officer said the ENTIRE family attacked him. So, the entire family was charged.

So, while the rest of the family have to take the rap, the ringleader walks (or crawls) free. <_< Is that justice, I ask???
