Today’s news, I quote from ARAB NEWS:
DAMMAM: A private van driver faces charges of criminal negligence following the death on Sunday of a five-year-old girl who was left unattended for five hours in the vehicle in the full glare of the sun outside the International Indian School in Dammam’s Al-Raka district.
Extremely sad news. Painful.
Let me tell you another story. Some years ago. A friend of mine told me of a friend of his who worked for the police. This man was leaving home dressed in civilian clothes to go to work when he noticed a driver sitting in a GMC SUBURBAN alone, looking a bit weird. Being a cop , he was vigilant. He got suspicious and went very quietly around the car, to peek inside. What he saw almost made him SHOOT this driver. The driver sat there abusing his employers child, sexually. The man opened the door, having caught the man red handed, and suffered patiently to take him to the station and take action.
Here is another story. I caught a housemaid slapping a little girl around, shouting at her in a hotel lift. Her parents were either waiting in the car for them or in the room. This child was alone with the maid. I stopped her right there and then. I told her that she is leaving to where ever the heck she came from that minute. This is NOT OK!.. the child was SCARED!.. the maid started to beg me not to tell her parents. Oh, Was I going to tell them. An undercover officer, a dear friend of mine, who was STATIONED at the hotel came and I told him what this was and what I had seen. He promised me that he will take care of this with the maids boss and requested I don’t talk to them. He did talk to the father. And I did hear that they were going to send her back or God knows what. But, WHY allow this to begin with? How could ANYONE leave their child unmonitored like this? HOW?
What the HECK IS GOING ON!!!
I will tell you what is going on. One man brings 500 people , males and females under his sponsorship NO BACKGROUND CHECKS – and lets them into the city to find work by hook or by crook. Anyone becomes anything on that level of work we call below the line, or lower category jobs. Housemaids that have run away from employers get jobs. Drivers that have run away from employers get jobs. They even buy private vans and take children to school. Privately sponsored.
I beg the government of Saudi Arabia to STOP THIS. Get aggressive with this. Please.
DO not allow people to bring in workers that cause troubles in this country. Do you have any idea how many kids have been abused here? And ARE abused daily by these UNKNOWN people? ALL labor, ALL DRIVERS .. in fact ALL expatriates should be sponsored by the government! With checks and approvals. With EYES OPEN!
In the case above, the people who should GO TO JAIL are the parents and the damn school itself. These parents just let their child ride ANY van? They did not make sure the kid is in class?? And that school! How much money do they raise every month?? How much do they charge for students? They could not have a monitor in every van they hire or at least count the kids and call parents if someone is missing? A school that has 16000 students! Do they just want to make money??
And where is the government in all this? Who are these damn private van drivers? Who issues them the license and authority to drive little kids around? What the HELL is a “PRIVATE VAN”.. who owns it? Who gives it permission to act as a public transport vehicle?? It has to be a Saudi owner. Because if it is now a Saudi Owner and any Tom , DIck and Harry can get a van and start this business, then HEY! I will close my company and buy 10 vans with camera security and make big bucks too.. ! COME ON NOW!..
A CHILD HAS DIED. A 5 YEAR OLD BEAUTIFUL, LOVELY, PLAYFUL LITTLE GIRL. MY TEARS CANNOT STOP THINKING ABOUT IT!.. SHE DIED SUFFERING FROM HEAT! SHE DIED BECAUSE EVERYONE IS IN A HURRY!.. SHE DIED BECAUSE WE DON’T CARE ENOUGH!…
CLOSE DOWN THIS SCHOOL!
I am totally shocked that wealth is in abundance but no one cares to spend on the most vital areas of life here!!!!..
I apologize for being so angry and disturbed.. but EVERY PERSON LIVING ON THIS LAND is responsible for the MURDER of this child by this STUPID driver who was granted permission to run a van business for students. This is the TRUTH!
