How far would you go to teach a child to be responsible? It is indeed important to do so since the children of today is the ones who will mold the future. But it seems that a man from Russia went too far to make a young boy learn a lesson. An unbelievable video of a Russian driver ramming into a shocked boy and then making him stay on his knees on the icy road until the police arrived emerged and went viral on the internet this week. The netizens all over the globe were debating on how shocking this video is.
The shocking incident took place in Priozyorsk, near St. Petersburg in northern Russia. At the beginning of the video, two boys can be seen playing with a toy gun by the road, when a black 4x4 takes a sharp turn and heads directly for the children and apparently targeting them for pointing the toy at the car. As the boys tries to escape, the driver named Vladimir Belsky targets the older-looking boy and eventually gets to hit him, sending the boy off the sidewalk and onto the road. Next thing we knew, the driver is seen getting out of the car and dragging the boy to his vehicle, before forcing him to kneel down and wait for the cops to arrive.
