Robot Jockeys and Child Abuse……

I read an article about United Arab Emirates where they are planning to use robot jockeys for camel races. They used to use real boys (under 18 years old), but that has recently become outlawed. The story states "many children, mainly from poor Asian countries, had been abducted or sold by their families and that the boys were kept in prison-like conditions and underfed to keep them light so the camels run faster."

May I state here Thank Gawd children jockeys have been outlawed! I have to wonder about a culture that would use children, some of them even stolen, is such an abhorrent manner. Really, the treatment of women and children in the Middle East frightens me. I can't help saying so!
