A Memory Man Production
It is 1940's Britain; you are magistrate and a respected pillar of your community. You are strict with your almost 11yo son Kevin whom you spank whenever he is naughty or his behaviour falls short of that expected from the son of a man of your stature. So far it has always been your hand to his bare bottom.
Today the local bobby has brought Kevin home to you after catching him red handed in an act of wanton vandalism, the magnitude of which; had he been some kid arraigned before you in the Juvenile Court, even as a first offender, would have caused you little hesitation before awarding him four, perhaps even six, strokes of the birch.
Fortunately the constable has brought Kevin to you instead of the station after apprehending him. No other kids were involved but there were one or two passers by who saw the incident.
What will you do?
