If Agnelo's 'thing of passe' was funny, this one's gross... And this one's a Guilherme Almeida special. Thing is... no sub in the Herald, dare edit his stories... Not that he's flawless, but he positions himself as a demigod, who reports from a region which is at the heart of Herald's circulation, Margao -- Salcete. Other than that, he is quite thick with the deputy news editor Joel Afonso, the news editor Sergio Almeida is virtually scared of his tantrums and so on. Ok we've gone about quite a bit now... Let's expose you to one hell of a blooper from Herald's Margao dateline... Puritan hearted folk please do not read beyond this, others just check out the word in bold.

Boy held for molestation

MARGAO, AUG 24 — The Colva police on Friday arrested a 19-year-old boy for allegedly molesting a 13-year boy at Carmona.
The alleged incident is believed to have occurred a month ago, when the accused had called the victim boy to his house and fiddled with his private parts.
The incident came to light three days ago, when the boy narrated the matter to his mother, who later lodged a complaint with the Colva police.
The accused boy was arrested under the Goa Children’s Act, the Colva police said.

Wasn't that really sick? Half knowledge not only dangerous, its also repulsive in cases like this. The sub who cleared this copy must be asked about this... Someone ought to 'fiddle' him between his ears for gods sake.
