  1. I can’t believe this, so because of cell phone you truncated the destiny of this poor boy, you should have been sentenced to death. Rot in jail wicked man.

  2. This Sharia law mentality and brutality. He has been subjected to a lifetime of begging to survive, in a country where there are no amenities and rehabilitation for people with disabilities. Very sad indeed.
