KIDS AREN'T ALL RIGHT, POLICE SAY
Police in Kandal province’s Kien Svay district rounded up 40 people they identified as “gangsters” from two communes. Authorities then called on the gangsters’ parents to listen to their sage advice. Police urged the parents not to cause problems that would rupture the fabric of society. Rather than being enraged, the parents listened to the advice and expressed disappointment at how difficult it had been to educate their children. Many of the children just don’t do as they’re told, they complained.
