ntwaagae When i read some of the comments i pity some ppl without brains. The article CLEARLY states why this man went to buy milk nd where. This piece of police shit rubbish just wants to act like a puss because his black nd feels important. No pills for stupidity for some humans ntwaagae What was the child eating over the past 2 days? So is the shops at the hospital allowed to operate after 8pm?

Lies

ntwaagae Those police must be charged with child abuse. ntwaagae Read the entire story. He was on the way to the HOSPITAL for formula! This is disgusting especially after they determined he DID have a 2 day old at home, to make the post partum mother walk is inhumane. They should be fired!! Try arrest murderers!

If he had milk and receipt common sense should have prevailed. ntwaagae Don't like them. ntwaagae Finish the fuckers. Take them for millions. ntwaagae Police must always remember that we didn't ask for this virus or curfew, it's new to everyone including them. All they must do is use common sense
