I am a retired probation officer who supervised child molestors, rapists, and the worst of child abusers in my judicial circuit. You have got to be out of your mind for letting your 8 year old child traverse that store alone. That is exactly what child molestors look for and many lurk in bookstore for that reason. you owe the Barnes and Nobles clerk a debt of gratitude for caring. Besides, she may have known a customer in the store was a sex offender and was not allowed to acknowledge that. i checked my local book stores religiously before I retired and when I found an offender in the store, I introduced them to the store management so they would know what obstacle they were up against.
Your child may be a customer of Barnes and Noble, but he was also protected by the Barnes and Noble staff!
Cudos to Barnes and Nobles' for their employee's action(s)!!!!!!
