In my opinion the incident certainly warrants investigation by Social Welfare workers. Teaching such a young child to emulate self harm is very alarming. However at this stage I think arrest is overkill. Was this a temporary lapse of judgment? Is the child happy and healthy on days other than the one in question? If he is maybe the parents just need a compulsory seminar on child welfare. However if this kind of thing is found to be habitual after investigation, then they should be arrested for child neglect and abuse. If this is an isolated incident then what's the difference between this and Halloween? People allow their kids to dress up and killers and monsters but no one questions that.
