I was walking through the mall and I heard all these terrible cries from a child. I would think anyone can tell when a child is in distress and not just fussing. however I was the only one who reacted to the childs cries. turns out, they have this little girl about 5 or 6 up in the cheap jewelry store and the salesclerk was jabbing something at her ear to pierce it. the child was miserable and the stupid mother was holding the child down. straight out of the dark ages. I stopped them from jabbing the child and cussed them all out on the child's behalf. they called mall security who tryed to take me away but I refused to leave that child there. by then some people in the crowd came to my defense and we had a stand off with the security. so security called the regular police, but since 911 is such a joke I was able to walk away before the police showed up. it saddened me that a black mother is so out of touch that she can not tell when her child is in true distress.
