Halloween no treat after police complaint

AS Halloween gains popularity amongst the local kids, some friend of mine always make sure they have a few treats for the tricksters that come to their door every year.

Well imagine their surprise this year when, after commenting how cute one little girl looked, all in the presence of her mother, that three hours later they should also be visited by local law enforcement after the mother of the little girl lodged a complaint about said comment.

As a mother myself, I understand the need to protect our children, but WAKE UP!!

If you are going to traipse around the Valley knocking on strangers doors asking for lollies you are potentially putting your children at risk.

After investigation of the matter, which took up valuable police resources, my friends were found unquestionably innocent of any wrong doing.

Shocked and shaken they will probably not be participating in an otherwise American tradition next year.
