"We are assured that there was, and is, no risk to any of the pupils from this man."

So, a non-story then. Now, if it were someone on the register, THAT would be a story.... *sigh*

Wish I'd known someone was handing out free lollies, I'd have taken my grandsons over there and we all could have enjoyed a nice free ice-cream!

Seriously though, what a non story.

Is this another go at the police,is it wrong to be safe and for them to treat a call seriously,or has everyone forgotten April Jones.

It just goes to show that we cannot help children these days.

For example, a few years a go a young girl about 8 or 9 years of age was walking towards me with a pedal cycle and crying her eyes out. The chain had come off of her bike.
.
I stopped her and said "can I help" and offered to put her chain back on for her.
.
She recoiled and walked away. Fair enough she had obviously been tought not to talk to strangers. That is fine.
.
But the point is, what sort of society have we created where one sensible adult cannot come to the aid of a small child with out being labelled a'kiddie-fiddler' or some other crass description.
.
The mind boggles. !!!

80% of attacks or abductions of children are by close relatives. Should there be scare stories about parents, especially fathers, meeting their children? Let's not demonise adults being kind to kids.
A few months ago a T.V. station over here did a, typical, beat up story about men ignoring, apparently, lost children, (they were set up in a mall). How awful they cried. Women much more sensitive. Stories like this one explain why men generally have to be hard-hearted when children are near, many are terrified of being branded. It's a real shame.
