    Staggeringly blatant profiling, what's more a crime wasn't even committed!! I'm hoping assault/battery or other appropriate criminal charges are also pursued..

    The situation could have been handled more appropriately. Show the girl the phone and ask her to open it. If it doesn't work, open it for her then say gtfohwts

    Why bring up race with everything, it’s ridiculous, we are all human. You mess up there are consequences no matter if your black, brown, white, purple, orange, or blue

    Totally agree with the case. Money unfortunately speaks. Did the accuser go on Cnn and tell the world watching that she made a huge mistake? Accused a child of theft and physically attacked him. I can guarantee you if the child was a white boy and the father a white business man the hotel would have apprehended the women for touching the child. So angry. My grand babies are part Nigerian decent and if some women tackled my grandson she would receive my left hook. Now see because I am Scottish decent I wouldn't worry so much about getting shot by police if I laid my hands on her. She could charge me with assault but we could charge her back.

    You sir, you are a good man. You are raising a good man. Your wife is a good woman and this mess should not leave your son believing anything less. I am appalled once again.
