Eunice Chua 24/6

This article is about a police officer who visited a house to arrest a boy. However, his sister did not let him in and kept shouting vulgarities. She later scratched the police woman and kicked her in the knees and stomach. After she was handcuffed and taken to a police car, the girl swung her legs against a back door and kicked a rear window.

In my opinion, I felt that the actions of the sister reflect the love she has for her brother. It is understandable that she is just trying to protect her brother but she should not have attack the civil servant as this will bring more trouble to the family. I think that the only solution to this problem is that the sister should have talk the brother to admit hi own crimes, although it is easier said than done, this is always the right thing to do rather than attacking the police officer. If the brother were to admit to his own crimes, the sentence will be lightened too. This will most probably be the most effective way to help the brother in this situation. Although the actions of the sister may be wrong but this shows the love she has for her brother, how she wanted to protect him and this is the kind of relationship that is slowly fading in the society now.

  1. I agree with you that the sister's actions showed that she loved her brother. However, her brother had done something wrong, if she really love him and cared about his future, she should let the police arrest his brother and be punished for what he had done and he will change and be a better person in future.
