A well-groomed man was seen beating the life out of a small child with an electric stick. Every time the man strikes the child, the stick electrocutes him with a 10000 volts shock. The man was detained by the police and questioned. He said: “I am only protecting myself. The little boy’s father has been throwing little stones at the front glass of my shop. So I’m trying to stop him”. The police were convinced and quite impressed by his moral reasoning, they released the man, and brought the child back to him to continue his beating.
It is not the shop-owner’s fault that the child is being beaten, it is his father’s.
