Grand mother mistaken for kidnapper

What manner of people are we breeding in this country? What manner of a country is this where a grand mum is not free to carry her daughter’s baby home from the hospital? What has happened to our respect for the aged? Why are people so animalistic and bloodthirsty that they won’t even spare the aged and the newborn from their depravity? 

I just read in the Punch the story of the poor woman who was taking her daughter’s newly-born baby home in Lagos when she was accosted by a mob who argued that she was too old to have a new born? Her explanations fell on deaf ears and they descended on her, beating and tearing her clothes.

The old woman held on to her grandchild and protected it as much as she could, but by the time the police rescued them, the poor baby was already bleeding!
Even if the woman was a kidnapper, does it make sense to beat the kidnapper together with the baby?

If you take part in mob justice, you may have attracted generational curses for your generations yet unborn. The blood of the innocent you shed in the belief that you are enforcing justice will cry to God for revenge.

Right now, I feel terrible for that poor old woman and her innocent grand-child.
