So, some kids in the tony suburb of Fishers called their parents yesterday and told them that a man had pulled up to their bus stop and asked them to get in his car.
The chain of events gets fuddled from there, but apparently the parents called the school, and the school called the po-po, and by the time the heat showed up at the bus stop, the alleged perv was long gone.
Naturally this has triggered something of a hooraw, and the police have issued a statement that kids should keep an eye out for the bad man today and call 911 before calling their parents, and lor' bless 'em for any extra work they've brought on themselves this morning, but the cherry on the icing of the cake of the whole thing is that the only description given was "A white man in a red car".
Who was the first concerned parent interviewed?
That's right, completely tone-deaf to irony, the reporter did his concerned parent interview with a white dude sitting in a red car. I was laughing too hard to yell at the TeeWee screen "That's the guy! Right there! Ask the little girl in the passenger seat if she's there willingly!"
I'm glad I'm not a Hamilton County 911 dispatcher this morning, I can tell you that. Or a white dude in a red car that has to drive past a school bus stop to get to work.
