Tonight on: TALKING POINT

A six-year-old boy was thrown five floors from the 10th floor of the Tate Modern art gallery in central London, police said.

He landed on a fifth floor roof and was taken to hospital by air ambulance after he fell at about 14:45 BST on Sunday.

The boy's condition is described as critical.

A 17-year-old boy has been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder, the Met Police said.

They said the six-year-old was thrown from a viewing platform.

But our question this evening: Might this have been done for a positive reason?

Maybe the child was really annoying.  So we have to keep an open mind.

He was just helping the child add to his wellspring of experience. I never had a multi storey fall when I was young and I've always regretted not having the perspective of being a bag of bone shards and agony.

This is the second time I have read about children being thrown off balconies in one day. Maybe the thrower had been rejected by women, as this man had:

This happened months ago and the kid has only just come out of intensive care. Really hope both of them pull through.

Jackson Pollock's ghost is a bit of a cunt.

Maybe the child was suicidal and the boy was helping him end his life. I feel like we should respect children's decisions to end their own life.

That's a bit harsh, he's one of my favourite posters.

We’re forgetting that it used to be perfectly normal for parents to leave their children locked in a car while they went into a pub for a pint and a piss.


In other words what seems extreme now might not always seem so bad.

If you ever see a child and don't start looking for the nearest precipice you can hurl them off or blunt object to can use to open their worthless skull like a fucking coconut then you need to take a good long look at yourself.

Hi TALKING POINT! Love the show.
Maybe the 'child' was a midget paedophile?
Better safe than sorry I always say.

What if this six year old was an infant Spider-Man that would lose its powers unless they were utilised as soon as possible?

And I'm just going to say it and I don't care what anyone thinks: kids are the last taboo, yeah? No one likes humans, and humans who are tiny and can't speak and are content to spend their days stepped in their own piss and shit are objectively the worst humans, so what are parents thinking?

Only thing that can stop a crazed teenager with a high viewing platform is a sane teenager with a high viewing platform!

You are prepared to cheat, to forge, to blackmail, to corrupt the minds of children, to distribute habit-forming drugs, to encourage prostitution, to disseminate venereal diseases—to do anything which is likely to cause demoralization and weaken the power of the Party? If, for example, it would somehow serve our interests to throw a small child from an art gallery —are you prepared to do that?

Maybe the kid was about to throw the teenager off of the same place. Self-defence, preemptive strike, shock and awe.


Also, ewww. Grim thread.

you have had a really terrible experience of children which, unfortunately, spells the end for your own blood-line. so you'd've helped this deranged bloke chuck the tot, yes?
