Boy, 3, found wandering the street naked, covered in faeces, and pleading “Can I come with you? I need help”

A naked, faeces covered little boy was found wandering the streets in Derbyshire town, UK, pleading for help from passersby.

He looked very skinny and pale and was soon approached by a woman who was with her own child.
He said to the woman: “Can I come with you? I need help”. The woman then asked where his mother was and he replied that " she always goes to sleep".
The concerned woman then called the police.

The boy’s mother later came out to find him and took him home. When police and social services got to the boy’s home, they found him asleep, lying next to a box of vomit. They also came across diarrhea (probably the little boy’s excrement) on the landing of the house.

The mother was tried at Derby Crown Court. She pleaded guilty to one count of child neglect and was jailed for six months.

Before the sentencing, the Judge, Jonathan Bennett said to the boy's mother:
 "The incident itself is a harrowing one. The woman was with her own little boy when she then meets your little boy that is covered in faeces. He was completely lost, had no clothing on whatsoever and appeared to her to have no road sense. The little boy said to her 'can I come with you? I need help and she sensed the boy was in danger. She had to help him, he was in a dreadful state and was exposed to tremendous danger.

"I accept that you were in an abusive relationship at the time and that you had your hands full but the duty of the court is to protect the most vulnerable people in our society and this little boy was particularly vulnerable."

Why get pregnant if you can't take care of the child. This is so painful to read. Poor boy.

Some mothers shouldn't be called mothers. God's ways r really not our ways. Those looking for the blessing of a child might never get while those who didnt suffer to bring one into the world mess up their chances.

Long live LIB
