Facebook Warning Posted For Elk County Residents Was A Case Of Misunderstanding

Facebook Warning Posted For Elk County Residents Was A Case Of Misunderstanding

 Elk County Online Garage Sale

ALERT!:: There is an African American man, approximately 30 years of age driving a silver colored Grand Am driving around the area. He is looking for a 4 year old caucasion female that he claims has been missing for 4 days. He also claims that he is reported her disappearance to the police. St. Marys City Police, Johnsonburg Police and Ridgway Police have CONFIRMED there is NO MISSING 4 YEAR OLD FEMALE CHILD. Watch your children!!

To whom it may concern the young lady was not told they were looking for a child, they were looking for a creme colored CHOW, which is a dog... It is a shame when Caucasian person can't understand an African American is a damn shame and then make false accusation is really messed up... The CHOW is 4 yrs. old and thanks to all my Facebook friends she has been found and home safely... Please miss get your story straight... And if you going to start a rumor get it right.....

The man was asking about a cream colored chow. Not a little girl. And the he did report it missing to the police

this was a false accusation, the man was looking for a 4 year old cream colored chow, the woman totally misunderstood him, I don't believe this post should have been posted unless something was issued by the police, it was only posted on here because of the woman posting it on Facebook, that is my opinion and I'm sticking to it, thankfully the dog has been found no thanks to all these false rumors

Jim - I agree with the person above. This should never have been posted unless it was a police report. It makes your site look very unprofessional!!

Solomon's words for the wise said...

I'm sure you are right 11:48, but I'd rather have the site be unprofessional than have something happen to a child.

I agree with Jim. Whether it comes out in the end that it is a false story or not, it is nice that people can use social media to alert others of something that is out of place. I would rather face the music after the fact that I spread a false rumor than not say anything and a child be abducted or worse. People need to realize that the same post would have been posted if it had been a WHITE male that claimed to be looking for a child around the area. People are blowing it out of proportion because it was a black man. Get real people. This woman was HELPING people to be aware. She was describing the person she saw. WOW. I hope that people start to become as vigilant as this woman. This may prevent a terrible tragedy someday. Don't worry about black and white. She was looking out for parents with CHILDREN!!!!

I deal with some Afro Americans all the time and a lot of them pronounce their words kind of not correct so if he said Chow it may have sounded like Chile to the person who heard it. Bottom line, he should have said a dog or Show dog. this would have made it clear. Not to sound like a bigot because there are a lot of white folks and Asian folks who can not pronounce words in a way they are understood also. In this case one should make it clear what they are saying. And AJim I agree what if this had have been a child? Bu tpeople are to willing to jump on this site to complain. You do a good Job Jim

I hope his kid doesn't go missing because then everybody will be looking for his dog!

So now that we have the story straight can we take it down as it still reads "there's a creeper in town" when there is not.

Maybe we should DEMAND that ENGLISH be the ONLY language spoken in the United States of America. And while we are at it, make students speak the English language correctly BEFORE they are allow to graduate.

Seriously, 11:14? He speaks English. If you talk to the Brits, we all butcher the language. It's not called "American." There are different dialects of English all over the world, and plenty of them right here in the USA. Have you every spoken to a white dude from Pittsburgh?? I can't understand a word they say, and it hasn't anything to do with the color of my skin. An English requirement would have done nothing for this situation. Maybe the girl needs a set of hearing aides.

No one should be permitted to post such a story anonymously. At least someone should have checked their facts a little more carefully before letting this get publicized. Remember the childhood game of GOSSIP where the facts always got distorted?
