“Hang on, Ashley,” I said when the red and blue lights flashed in my rearview mirror. “There’s a cop behind me.” I moved towards the shoulder of Highway 13 to let him pass. He declined my offer.        “I have to hang up, Ash. This police officer wants to have a chat...

Well I stumbled across the scary video on how predators might be able to find out things about you and your children from pictures posted online.
