Pakistan drops murder charges against 9-month old baby

Really, Pakistan?

The government in a city in Pakistan charged a 9-month old baby, Musa Khan, with murder after this family was arrested while protesting conditions for the poor. During the scuffle, a sub-inspector complained that the infant’s family beat him up and hit him on his head. The inspector was trying to collect overdue bills.

The toddler appeared in court in the city of Lahore yesterday drinking out of a bottle while sitting on his grandfather’s lap. Out of mercy and perhaps being ridiculed by the world for being stupid, the judge dropped the charges against the baby.
