Letter: Rear-end touch not worth police involvement

Editor’s note: This letter is in response to an article written by Duffy Hayes of The Daily Sentinel: “Sam’s Club worker cited for groping near meat section.”

I do not know the young employee or the woman who turned him into the police because he touched her rear end at Sam’s Club. She could have talked to the manager, not go to the police. Lady, long after you’re gone that young man will have that on his record the rest of his life. I’m an old lady and have had a few hugs from employees. She could have said that’s a “no-no” to him or gone to the manager, not the police. That’s crazy. The manager would have taken care of it. The police should only be involved if you are robbed or threatened with a gun, not because someone touched you on the rear end. Shame on you, too.
