Child Calls Police To Report Being Forced To Do Housework

An 11-year-old German boy called a police emergency line to report a "forced labor" situation after his mother asked him to help clean the house. The mom says she just asked him to pick up some papers left on the floor, but he complained to police, "I have to work all day long. I haven't any free time." Sorry, kid. Considering that your parents are feeding and clothing you until you turn 18 and just want you to do a few chores, we'd say this is more of an indentured servitude situation.
