These two boys bring great shame on their families and on wider society. As a society we must all take some responsibility for their deplorable actions.
To punch an elderly man, Ekram Haque, for no reason in front of his three year granddaughter Marian can only be described as despicable. Mr Haque, died from his injuries.
Furthermore, although it’s difficult to prove, one suspects that he was targeted because of his race. Violent racist whoever they are must be condemned.
All of us must instill [in our young] that the ‘Happy slapping’ culture is totally unacceptable.
Moreover, we must all redouble our efforts, particularly within our extended families and circles of friends. to instill good manners and respect.
Right now our thoughts go out to the Haque family.
