You’re dammed if you do and dammed if you don’t

I think I would prefer a person to err on the side of caution than be politically correct. I think this family should thank the woman for bringing her suspicions to the authority than let it sit with her. What if the man was indeed a kidnapper? What then? We would hear how it didn’t matter because these were black children? Come on people stop being so petty about things. We need all eyes on our children – the more the better. People are trying to be good, give them encouragement or tips on how to do better next time don’t just fly the red flag of racism and chastise a good Samaritan.
