It was incredibly creepy but this part was especially alarming

Torsten has knocked the table with his foot and caused it to teeter, to almost topple, before it rights itself. Immediately – like a reflex – Malcolm hits him in the face.

It is not a heavy blow, but it is a slap with the palm of his hand direct to his two-year-old son’s face that’s firm enough for me to hear on my voice recorder when I play it back later. And Malcolm has done it in the middle of a public place, in front of a journalist, who he knows is recording everything

Agreed.
The like a reflex thing the reporter notices.
Yikes.

I sure hope someone outside that family in a position to monitor the health and safety of those children, those very young children… ye gods.

I’ve really gotten into doing crossword puzzles the last few years, and a name I started seeing a lot was Sid Sivakumar. He’s a really interesting guy.
