The matter was reported to the Police with select Officers being very cooperative while others were open with scaving remarks and one male officer demanded the boys leave the station.
However the “Professional officers” saw to it that the matter was dealt with and the victims left the station without fear. Thanks officers.
Thanks especially to a woman constable who shall remain nameless who has asked us to keep her abreast of the boys situation, she has left her personal cell number.
A special thank you to a former JFLAG Crisis Intervention Officer who has sheltered the boys in her own home and has promised to do so until they can fully get back on their feet. Of note JFLAG decided not to intervene in this matter as the boys were deemed trouble makers since they had problems in their relationship which sometimes led to fights. I was troubled by this decision however as I was of the opinion that the organization was to serve the community.
The broken legged victim has since had the cast removed and he has returned to his job as a landscaper, while the other is job hunting.
UPDATE: Oct 7, 2009 – both men have moved on and have separated but have found employment and housing with some help from friends and the above mentioned crisis intervention Officer.
