I need to vent and want your thoughts on this even if it is to tell me "mom, you are overreacting" lol The other day, my child's school sent out an email and the local PD sent out a notice about an attempted abduction or luring (as described by PD) that took place right near her school. Here is the exact notice from the PD sent out: So of course all parents were on high alert, reminding the kids of strangers, etc etc. Then, the next day the PD sent out a "clarification": ok. while I trust our local PD, something doesn't make sense to me nor a bunch of other parents whom I have discussed this with....I am in Colorado and Jessica is still fresh in our minds!! First of all, what normal adult man would ever just randomly approach a little boy and offer him food inside his van?????? Second, having no 'record' is not indicative of innocence. Sometimes people just haven't been caught. Third, and please do not take this as bragging but it is relevant to the issue.... I live in an upper middle/upper class area where there are no homeless (unless they are hitching along the state highway that goes through our town) and there are not even any shelters in my town. So why would this man park near a school in an upper middle/upper class area handing out "free food" that is intended for homeless people.......stop a young boy and offer him some food in his van???? the school is NOT near the state highway and it is tucked away inside the neighborhood w/ half million dollar + homes. And police find nothing suspicious about this and give him an "all is ok". I really really really hate to criticize law enforcement, especially in my town because they are an awesome dept.....but does any of that make sense to you? To me and other parents here it does not!
