    The kid had good sense to make a complaint at the police station instead of murdering that sadist of a father!

    There is a Domestic violence Act in the country. One problem is Police not using the act and trying to reconcile the parties which usually lead to more serious consequences. Please do your duty correctly rather than sending videos to media.

    "Those children who are beaten will in turn give beatings, those who are intimidated will be intimidating, those who are humiliated will impose humiliation, and those whose souls are murdered will murder." Alice Miller, born as Alicija Englard, was a Swiss psychologist and psychoanalyst of Polish-Jewish origin, who is noted for her books on parental child abuse, translated into several languages.

    This boy's complaint to the Police is his and his mother's, other siblings' total helplessness at the hands of his father's cruelty to the family.
