video of child smoking

India

first thing this morning, on opening my yahoo mail, i came across a news item which elaborated on a video, allegedly shot in Texas which shows two childred, aged 2yrs and 5/7yrs being forced to smoke marijauna by their uncle and his friend. the worst part was, the childrens' mother was vaguely seen in the background,and her muffled laughter was heard. the more i went into the news, the more i felt like throwing up. my heart went out to the children and i kept asking myself what had they done in such a tender age to get such treatment from their own parent!what kind of parents are these and how were they brought up? i just can't get over the trauma these children must have faced (and will face in future) and i still feel very very sick inside!

I also woke up to that same horrible video. the thoughts that the uncle and friend thought is was a joke was disgusting . I think that it seemed to be a normal occurence, not a first time event. the children held it like they were used to smoking. it is very heatbreaking. Women should definately have to be screened before having children, its ridiculous and not to mention it is videotaped so the children will never live it down. thankfully the faces of the participants were not disclosed.

yes, at least they had the good sense to blurr the child's face (maybe they wanted to avoid recognition, they knew what they were doing was illegal). i know, the children looked like they were enjoying it. but when i read that the 2yr old said "no more" and went to the kitchen with his shorts falling off on the way, i really felt like crying. how else can one think of torturing small children, who are like angels into our wretched lives?

Hi Sudipta That's a really shocking news .. thank God I have not received this type of email .. which will simply ruin up my day .. but again if I have not seen then that doesn't mean that this never happened .. It's just a great example of badness overruling many people and we just can't do anything about it.

That was pretty disgusting and the mother's laughter was being heard in the background? Both the mother and the uncle deserves to be hanged. Those were children who were suppose to be innocent. They should be the ones taking good care of them and not the ones who would damaged their bodies in such a very young age.

One horrible parents. They must be hunt down and put to jail. I don't what's happening to the society sometimes. The people we look up to for morals, and society standards are the ones starting a big scene. Morality is really going into the drains by the minute. I hope in my lifetime to see a revolution started to turn the society around post MTV, "bad" HipHop (not saying all are), and Paris Hilton era
