theepochtimes: A boy was picked up by police at a freeway entrance after being beaten and abandoned by his mother. When the police asked him what happened, the boy said that his score on a math test was too low, according to the Luoyang Evening News.
Police came and found the boy after people reported seeing him on the street on Feb. 22 in Henan Province, China.
In a video posted on China’s Weibo, the country’s equivalent of Twitter, the child could be seen sitting in the back of a police vehicle while the officer knelt to ask him what had happened. “Was it your mother who hit you?” the officer enquired.
The boy affirmed and sniffled, “I didn’t do well on my test.
“I didn’t get a 95 on my math test. She said I wasn’t working hard.”
In the video, the officer could be seen calling the mother on speaker phone in front of several on-lookers. He announced that he was with the police, and proceeded to tell her that she should educate her son despite any mistakes he makes.
“You can’t just toss him on the side of the road and not care about him,” the officer said.
“Well, that’s just how I do it,” the mother responded. “Anyway, I don’t want him.”
“If you really don’t want him, then you’ll have to be sued, and you’ll be jailed for more than five years,” the officer replied.
“Then please sue me!” the mother said.
“Your attitude about being a mother isn’t quite right,” the officer responded.
“I’m not being responsible for him, so just sue me,” she finally said.
Meanwhile, the boy could be seen crying while sitting in the back seat of the police car. The cameraman tries to comforts him, telling him to not cry.
The police had no choice but to take the boy to the station where the boy’s uncle was contacted. The uncle later came to pick the boy up.
