Full Monty

Post by gardengirl »

I have to wonder about the wisdom of making this a "news" story.
I would think this person may have mental health issues, perhaps dementia. He probably needs help.
I don't think it is appropriate to post it for all to see.

I agree the story could have been handled differently but people in the area can be on the lookout now. Parents are aware and if he is spotted again hopefully someone will ask if he needs help.

After reading the article and looking at the picture it is pretty obvious he wanted to be seen. I wonder if this is the same guy that used to flash me when I was a kid walking to the bus stop every morning. :135:

This individual would have needed assist to use the chair. I suspect he made an escape from a secure location.

I don't believe there is a school at Dilworth and Springfield.

He could have avoided all this criticism by simply attaching a rainbow flag to his mobility scooter.
