Real Fear

I'm the parent of a mentally disabled white man.

We call him The Boy around here.

What happened in Chicago really strikes home because The Boy is apt to go walkabout and he's fairly trusting.

If anyone were to hurt him as those thugs hurt that man, denial of bail would have a different term, "protective custody".

I'd have to hurry to be the one who took vengeance too.

The Boy is very well loved by some very rough people.

Come to think on it, anyone who'd hurt him had better hope for real protective custody and solitary, because some of those rough people would happily get arrested for a chance.

  1. Considering just what happened to my mom, I can sympathize deeply.
