  I will find them for him, cant be that hard to track them down in this day and age


  As a male in this increasingly anti-male society I would have to be very careful. Men have been given such a bad name that any man, particularly if wearing a dog-collar, (I don't) seen with a child who is not his own and if that child is crying he would immediately be accused of molesting that child. I would ask another couple (M&F) to stay with the child until I could find a Female Police officer accompanied by a Male officer. That is the sad part about Australia today, thanks to a relatively few evil monsters every male is immediately suspect - just remember the next time you go to church (I don't) that if the congregation is, say, 300 - it is estimated that, at least 30 of those adult men & women are "Kiddie fiddlers" (Paedophiles currently molesting their own children or others.


  I have been in this predicament when I was awaiting a bus to get home. A little 4 yr old boy (6 yrs ago now) was wandering the footpath in Dee Why NSW and it distressed me that he was alone. So I asked him if he was ok and where his parent was. She was in a shop...but not exactly the closest to where he or I were. So I just waited near to where he was until she came back. There is no way I would catch the bus if he was not able to be with her again.


  This happened to me. I came across a sixteen year old girl sitting on the floor of a phone box crying and distressed. I stopped and asked if she was alright and she said no her parents had thrown her out of the house after an argument. She had called a friend who was driving to her to pick her up. It would take about 30 minutes and it was getting dark and cold. This was next to a main road. She didn't want to go home so I said I would wait with her until her friend arrived which I did. I gave her my coat from the car but thought it best not to ask her to sit in the car. We waited together and talked generally until her friend arrived, I gave her my phone number, $10 and told her to call me if she needed. She kept the coat and drove off with her friend. I didn't hear from her and just hoped she was alright. She only gave me her Christian name so couldn't follow up.


  Always ask what is wrong first
