I Say- The Later! Who is the guardian? Who is “taking good care for the “well-being” of this child? Surely, NO ONE!
What does the innocent, unknowing child have to secure himself in the event that anything other than a smooth, straight, closed road (fences to control animals, cars, other vehicles, people to keep away from the motorcycle)?
— A bump in the road causes the bike and riders to move around?
— A “critter”, person or vehicle or even the wind blowing a tree branch or a falling one into the path of the motorcycle?
—- As the bike “must lean” (Note: not the rider lean – if he “really knows how to ride – which obviously is doubtful to begin with) which causes the child to lose balance and secure “footing” —- WHOOPS- HE HAS NO FOOTING!
—- the motorcycle must suddenly swear, slow, or stop for any hundreds of reasons?
Where does the poor kid go if anything other than perfect conditions exist?
ANSWER: He goes flying through the air – NOT with the greatest of ease”. Very likely, THE KID IS NOW EITHER DEAD or SERIOUSLY (and likely PERMANENTLY) INJURED!
You can’t “Undo DEAD”! You can’t “Undo MANY THINGS .You Can’t Go Back In Time and Change things afterwards! Forever is a long time!
The rider is Committing a CRIME! RECKLESS ENDANGERMENT at the least! Many more charges I would throw at the guy! Parent – Guardian – Grown Up —- ALL NOT!!!
Who pays the price for “stupid”? The KID — You & Me! Talk healthcare costs, insurance costs, Services Needed, and TEARS, TEARS, TEARS! —- All UnCalled For! All That SHOULD NOT HAVE HAPPENED in the first place!
Suggest— If you see Bad Things That Are Happening – Call the Proper Authorities! Get involved! You just might save a life. You just might make the world a better place! — and YES – it is YOUR BUSINESS! (In spite of what this guy will tell you – He knows nothing).
