SandBox Comments: KREX 5 News "Safe2tell Program Takes Off"

Colorado kids rock.  These are awesome, amazing stats and we are very, very proud of you.

Let's hope the adults are learning from you that it is far better to have anonymity protections in place than it is to let harm to others or yourself go undetected.

On another note, 'SandBox Nanny' finds the KREX Hub comment from 'Yeah'   inappropriate and out of line.  The kind of person who falsely reports and lies to law enforcement certainly does exist on the western slope.  But they are the very small minority.  'SandBox Nanny' has faith in our kids that minority may be their parents but it is rare that the kids would follow that example.  Most of us have an instinctual reaction to trust our law enforcement. 

Congratulations to the Safe2Tell program on these great accomplishments.

Courtney Griffin:
"...Officials say since the first of this year, safe2tell received nearly 10,000 calls, texts and web reports. Preventing 28 school attacks, over 300 sexually-related crimes, around 500 threats of violence and nearly 650 cases of suicidal behavior and threats.
