To the young man with the colorful dew rag who was attempting to cut’ the line for the Paratrooper’ ride Saturday night (8/3/19), during Canalfest: What do you think you were teaching those three little girls?
They knew you were telling them to do something wrong, but you persisted.
In this age of people shooting and stabbing other people because they were ‘Disrespected.’ You just showed those little girls a good way to insure that, they will someday be able to become a victim of senseless violence!
I know that you are smart enough to understand what I’m saying! Because when you saw that being a “Thug” was not going to get you in front of me, you negotiated with me to allow you to get in back of me. When I asked you if you were going to make the same offer to everyone else in the line, those little girls looked at me, and I could see on their faces that they knew what you were doing was wrong.
Sir, please think about what you are teaching the children in your care the next time they are with you!
