Does anyone recognize the angelic face of the child posted below?
Earlier today 2 people were arrest on 5th street, 8th ave to prospect park west for reasons unknown to me. They looked like junkies. Unfortunately, the police stormed off with the man and the woman and did not realize that the baby stroller left near the stoop quite possibly belonged to the woman. Perhaps they thought the baby belonged to me so when they arrested the parents they did not bother to check and see if the stroller belonged to them. The 2 people arrested looked quite high by the way. By the time we noticed the stroller was abandoned it was too late.
A call was placed to 911 for the police to return
for the child but they told me that a car would be sent shortly. 2 hours later there was no police car. Eventually I made it to the train station and headed home to Manhattan where I once again called 911. This time they gave me the number to the precinct and I called. Shockingly, the police officer told me that they could not send a car to pick the child up and that I basically had to return to Brooklyn with the baby. I sensed that the request was more like an order.
I decided to heed the policeman's advice and return to Brooklyn with the child but not before posting a picture of the lovely child and hope that someone recognized the small boy. As I type this thread I am waiting for the car service that will schlep me back to Brooklyn. I pray that they reimburse me for the cab ride and above all I pray that the child is returned to his family instead of being placed at a filthy city child service center. The police are notorious for this.
