I asked this quetion because it must be hard for the street children to face them.From ELLA!
That was a very good question you asked and I hope Peter answered you adequately.
The children are afraid of the police because they catch them and put them into a Govt. Children Centre which is quite harsh and they try to escape.
He didnt answer your question about the publics attitude towards St. Kids.
The do not like them as they find them dirty and smelly. Also they harrass them for money andpick their pockets.
Have a good day . Sue
