I may be way off base by raising this topic but here goes; I spent the first 24 years of my life in Armley [Leeds 12]. Since 1957 I've lived in USA. I've such great memories of the row houses, cobbled streets, and strong neighborhood ties. As a child I don't recall hearing warnings about weirdoes and avoiding strangers. We assumed that police men were to be respected as were our school teachers and for that matter all adults. Where did we go wrong ?.
