Why is the child in hands of beggar always sleeping !!!
I found this article on facebook:
WHY IS THE CHILD IN HANDS OF BEGGAR ALWAYS SLEEPING !!!
"Why is sleeping child in the hands of
beggars? Have you ever wondered ... "
This article I read a few months ago.
Who is the author of, I don't know.
""Near the metro station sits a woman
of uncertain age.
is confused and dirty, her head bowed
The woman sits on the dirty floor and
next to her lies a bag. In that bag
people throw money. On the hands of a
woman, asleep, is a two year old baby.
He's in a dirty hat and dirty clothes.
“Madonna with baby” - numerous
passers-by will donate money. The
people of our kind- we always feel
sorry for less fortunate. We are ready
to give unfortunate people the last
shirt, the last penny out of your pocket
and never think another issue.
Helping, seems like. “Good job
I walked past a beggar for a month.
Did not give any money, as I knew that
this is a gang operated scam and
money collected by the beggar will be
given to whoever controls beggars in
the area. Those people own numerous
luxury properties and cars.
Oh and beggar also gets something, of
course “ A bottle of vodka in the
evening and a döner kebab”.
A month later, walking past the
beggars, as shock, it suddenly
I'm staying at a busy crossing, stared
at the baby, dressed as always- dirty
track suit. I realized that it
seemed "wrong", finding a child in a
dirty underground station from
morning to evening.
The baby slept. Never sobbed or
screamed, always asleep, burying his
face in the knee of a woman who was
Do any of you, dear readers, have
children? Remember how often they
slept at the age of 1-2-3 years? Hour
two, maximum three (not consecutive)
afternoon nap, and again – movement.
For the whole month, every day of my
walking in the underground, I've never
seen a child awake! I looked
at the tiny little man, with his face
buried in the knee of his mother, then
at the beggar, and my
suspicion was gradually formed.
– Why he sleeps all the time? I asked,
staring at the baby.
The beggar pretended not to hear me.
She lowered her eyes and
hid her face in the collar of her shabby
jacket. I repeated the question. The
looked up. She looked somewhere
behind my back, tired with utter
irritation. Her look was similar to the
creatures from a different planet.
-F **k off ... her lips murmured.
-Why is he asleep?! I almost cried ...
Behind me someone put his hand on
my shoulder. I looked back. A some
old man was looking at me
– What do you want from her? Can’t
you see how hard she’s got it in her
life… Eh …
He gets some coins from his pocket
and throws them in the beggar’s bag.
Beggar made a hand wave of a cross,
portraying the face of humility and
grief. The guy removed his hand from
my shoulder and strolled out of the
I bet, at home, he will tell how he
defended poor, distraught woman from
a soulless man in a tube station.
Next day I called a friend. It was a
funny man with eyes like olives
Romanian nationality. He only
managed to complete three and a half
years of education. The complete lack
of education does not prevent him
from moving around the
City streets on very expensive foreign
cars and live in a “small” house with
countless number of windows and
balconies. From my friend I managed
to find out that this business, despite
spontaneity, clearly organized. Its
supervised by begging organized
crime rings. The children used are in
from families of alcoholics, or simply
I needed to get the answer to the
question – why is the baby sleeping?
And I received it. My friend Gypsy said
the phrase, completely ordinary with
calm voice that twisted me in shock,
just like he was talking about weather
-They are on heroin, or vodka ...
I was dumbfounded. "Who is on
heroin? Whom – under vodka?! "
-The Child, so he doesn’t scream. The
women will be sitting whole day with
him, imagine how he might get bored?
In order to make the baby slept the
whole day, it pumped up with vodka
or drugs. Of course, children's bodies
are not able to cope with such a
shock. And children often die. The
most terrible thing – sometimes
during the "working day". And
imaginary mother must hold another
dead child on her hands until the
evening. These are the rules. And the
by passers-by will throw some money
in the bag, and believe that they are
"mother alone" …
… The next day I was walking near the
same underground station. I stocked
up journalistic identity, and was ready
for a serious conversation. But the
conversation didn't work out. But
turned out the following ...
A woman was sitting on the floor and
in her hands she was holding a child. I
asked her a question about the
documents on the child, and, most
importantly, where was yesterday's
kid, which she simply ignored.
My questions were not ignored by
passers-by. I was told that I was out of
my mind screaming at poor beggar
with a child. All in all, I was escorted
out of the tube station in disgrace.
One thing remained was to call the
police. When police arrived, beggar
with the baby disappeared. I stood
with a full sense of - “I'm trying to
When you see in the subway, on the
street whether women with children,
begging, think before your hand climb
for money. Think about that, if it
wasn't for your hundreds of thousands
of handouts, the business like this
would have died. The business would
die and not the children-inflated with
drugs. Do not look at the sleeping
child with affection. See horror… Since
you're reading this article, you know
now- why the child is sleeping in
I never quite asked myself that question until now >_>
