There is? What was untruthful?

Why would she have to be supervising her grandchildren at all?

If she was not supervising her own grandchildren, who was supervising them? If no one else was - and by Hulsey's statements, he was the only responsible adult on the beach while the children splashed in the water - then why did Miley not see that as a problem and get herself out on the beach pronto - where she could ensure their safety?

Rather than having her daughter call the police the next day to report "creepiness", she should have thanked Hulsey for caring enough about her grandchildren to get involved.

If one of those children began to drown, who would have been there, at that moment, to save the child's life? Apparently, only Hulsey.

As a non-part of the political or "political elite" of Madison, i.e. just a populi, I find the ballistics of the shots fired in this thread very illuminating. Keep'r up!

Let me be the first one here to state the obvious...

Thank you Brett Hulsey for being a hero!

The July 4 incident was first investigated by police officer Stephen Mackesey after the department received a call from the mother of the 9-year-old.

According to Mackesey's July 5 police report, the mother reported becoming concerned when she saw a man she didn’t know, later identified as Hulsey, swim up to her son and tip over his inner tube. The mother said Hulsey appeared to be then "wrestling or splashing" her son.

When Hulsey started taking pictures from the shore, the boy's father asked him what he was doing, according to the police report. Hulsey reportedly said it was "okay," noting that he knew the boy's grandparents, who live in a house adjacent to the beach.

Mackesey's report notes that the mother stated she had an obligation to report the incident because she was "worried if this individual may have done this before or may do more in the future."

Mackesey also interviewed the boy's father, grandfather and grandmother, who works for the city of Madison. All reported that the interaction with Hulsey left them feeling "uncomfortable."
