That was unnecessary. Now every low-brow racist will come out from under their rock.

What was unnecessary? A description of the attempted kidnapper? You're more concerned with racist comments than catching this guy? WTF is wrong with you?

Apparently, he believes sprinkling water on a terrorist's face in an attempt to save American lives is despicable, and being politically correct is more important than our children's safety. In other words, he has his head so far up his arse he can't get oxygen to his brain.

Even if this incident happened, we are relying on a description from an 11-year-old girl. The person could have been a tanned white guy.

Please just go to a mirror, look closely at the guy looking back at you, and slap him silly. Thanks.

The "men" in question went into the pizza shop. Guessing the cops talked with them. Just keep an eye out for a green mercedes with spray paint on it.

Sorry, Aimee, remember this is an 11-year-old girl. How does she know it was a green Mercedes? It could have easily been a purple Volkswagen! LOL

I don't know about your 11 year old, but there are some really smart kids out there. She might not have the exact model, but if she says mercedes, than its probably that or another high end car. And as for sparkly green,,,, guarenteed an 11 year old knows sparkly green when she sees it.

Of course I was kidding. I was poking fun at nitwit Joe's previous post casting doubt on the girl's credibility.

When you have incidents as described happening in certain communities, unfortunately racial profiling can come into play. According to The Intelligencer report the girl described the person as either Hispanic or Asian. I think the average person could give a more definite answer in regards to the person's race. Now depending on the time of day perhaps that wasn't possible because shadows from the sun can distort skin color. It could have been a tanned white person. The report also mentions the girl describing a "sparkly green Mercedes." Such a car would be very easy to find. The reported incident happened Sunday. Today is Tuesday. I'm sure police departments throughout Southeast Pennsylvania have been put on notice. But as of today, no "sparkly green Mercedes" has been found. There are holes in this case and we should not jump to conclusions.

In cases like this you should ALWAYS give the child the benefit of the doubt. Most 11-year-olds are fully capable of providing credible descriptions. You're going out of your way to enable a predator. I have to wonder why.

WTF is your problem?

The UBFP broke this story before the Unintell did on Facebook with the same description. Are you now calling Mr. Betz a racist as well for reporting the same thing?

Go crawl back under your rock.
