So sad this video shows the possible fear of helping.

I saw this. Yeah, men are vilified, these days if they help and if they don't help. And, in the world, they have to put race into everything too.
"these men didn't help because they're white and middle class"

Something over 40 years ago, there was a little blonde haired girl in a K-mart store, standing there crying.  I asked her what is wrong and she said her mommy was lost.  I told her to follow me and I walked to the front of the store as the girl followed.  I went to the customer service area and told them the girl had lost her mother.  They said they would take care of her.  As I walked away, the little girl started following me again.  Then I told her that she could stay with those people and they would help her find her mother.  It was after all this that I realized that some pervert could have gotten her to follow him right out of the store and that was frightening.  The thing is my own blonde-haired daughter was in kindergarten and was not much older than this girl.  I made sure that I did not pick up the girl and tote her to the front of the store because I thought, if her mother was nearby, she might have gotten the wrong idea.


On another occasion, about 10 years ago I got off work around midnight, after working the late shift. I stopped to pump gas.  There was a woman pumping gas at the next pump. She went in to pay for her gas, leaving an infant in one of those carriers in the front seat of her car.  When I finished pumping gas, I stood next to the woman's car until I saw her coming out after paying for her gas.  She was almost running out of the door.  I started walking toward the store and she stopped moving so fast because I guess she realized her child was safe.  I was not going to move away from the car until I knew the child was safe myself.
