I am. It's very interesting. That case of the toddler who got out of the nursery still haunts me sad.

Gave me goose bumps.But I woldn't have approached the boy in the station-he didn't look "vunerable" to me or in need of help.
Probably would have spoken to the little girl though....she looked lost.

i work with children though and have found lots of younger blokes applying for the jobs so don't really agree with this bit

I saw the title in the TV guide and it made my teeth itch - 'PC Brigade' is right up there with 'health and safety' as a Pavlovian rallying cry for the hard-of-thinking, IMO.

Great programme but it isn't going to change the worl-PC or not,many people "just don't care" sad

So sad.

It was a wee bit contradictory - saying how bad it was that people didn't stop for the lost children yet critical of people who did report something they thaught was odd (the den-building granny). It's not a modern phenomenon either, at least one person saw Susan Maxwell being abducted all those years ago and didn't stop to help sad.
