<i>Girls Beware</i>

3
00:00:13,600 --> 00:00:17,400
Produced with the cooperation of the Inglewood Police Department

4
00:00:17,600 --> 00:00:21,400
and the Inglewood Unified School District.

5
00:00:28,000 --> 00:00:31,400
"Norma Neufner   Policewoman" [Nametag]

6
00:00:36,000 --> 00:00:37,800
I'm Norma Neufner, policewoman, 

7
00:00:37,800 --> 00:00:40,400
attached to the Juvenile Division.

8
00:00:40,600 --> 00:00:42,400
I'm on a call from a very worried mother

9
00:00:42,600 --> 00:00:44,400
whose daughter is missing.

10
00:00:44,600 --> 00:00:47,400
Her daughter's name is Judy Miller.

11
00:00:55,600 --> 00:00:57,400
Judy enjoys babysitting but there weren't

12
00:00:57,600 --> 00:00:59,400
enough jobs among the people she knew, so

13
00:00:59,600 --> 00:01:02,400
she decided to advertise at the supermarket for extra work.

14
00:01:11,600 --> 00:01:13,400
Late the following afternoon the phone rang

15
00:01:13,600 --> 00:01:15,400
and Judy was offered a job for that evening

16
00:01:15,600 --> 00:01:17,400
The man told her he and his wife were going out to dinner

17
00:01:17,600 --> 00:01:20,400
and their regular sitter couldn't pick her up in 15 minutes.

18
00:01:32,600 --> 00:01:34,400
Judy's mother hadn't returned when it was time to go,

19
00:01:34,600 --> 00:01:37,400
so she left a message by the telephone.

20
00:01:50,600 --> 00:01:52,400
When her mother came home, she found Judy's note

21
00:01:52,600 --> 00:01:57,400
and called the number to let Judy know

22
00:01:54,600 --> 00:01:57,400
that she was home in case she wanted anything.

23
00:02:06,600 --> 00:02:08,400
A woman answered but she didn't know anything about Judy

24
00:02:08,600 --> 00:02:11,400
and told Mrs. Miller that she must have the wrong number.

25
00:02:29,600 --> 00:02:31,400
By midnight Mrs. Miller was really worried.

26
00:02:31,600 --> 00:02:34,400
She phoned the police and was transferred to Juvenile.

27
00:02:35,600 --> 00:02:37,400
I took the necessary information and assured her

28
00:02:37,600 --> 00:02:39,400
we'd do everything we could.

29
00:02:39,600 --> 00:02:41,400
She'd have to try to be patient and wait.

30
00:02:41,600 --> 00:02:43,400
The waiting list was almost a week.

31
00:02:45,600 --> 00:02:47,400
Then the report came in.

32
00:02:47,600 --> 00:02:49,400
Judy's [dead] body had been found on a lonely desert road.

33
00:02:53,600 --> 00:02:55,400
The most difficult part of my job is

34
00:02:55,600 --> 00:02:58,400
bringing bad news to parents.

35
00:03:01,600 --> 00:03:03,400
You can never find the right words to tell

36
00:03:03,600 --> 00:03:05,400
a mother [that] her daughter has been murdered.

37
00:03:05,600 --> 00:03:07,400
Judy hadn't done anything wrong.

38
00:03:07,600 --> 00:03:09,400
She'd only been careless...

39
00:03:09,600 --> 00:03:11,400
Careless about whom she trusted.

40
00:03:11,600 --> 00:03:13,400
In itself there had been nothing wrong about

41
00:03:13,600 --> 00:03:15,400
avdertising for a job, but it lead her

42
00:03:15,600 --> 00:03:17,400
to trusting a person she knew nothing about.

43
00:03:17,600 --> 00:03:19,400
A mentally sick person who used her innocent ad[vertisement]

44
00:03:19,600 --> 00:03:21,400
as an introduction to his act of violence.

45
00:03:27,600 --> 00:03:29,400
Being safe is often no more than 

46
00:03:29,600 --> 00:03:31,400
applying good judgment in everyday life.

47
00:03:32,000 --> 00:03:34,400
One night while Barbara was babysitting the doorbell rang

48
00:03:35,600 --> 00:03:38,400
She didn't open the door but called and asked who it was

49
00:03:39,600 --> 00:03:41,400
A stranger said his car had broken down

50
00:03:41,600 --> 00:03:43,400
and could'a(?) use the phone

51
00:03:43,600 --> 00:03:45,400
Barbara was very polite but she told him she was babysitting

52
00:03:45,600 --> 00:03:47,400
and was expecting a call from her parents.

53
00:03:47,600 --> 00:03:50,400
However she was sure the next door neighbors were home

54
00:03:50,600 --> 00:03:52,400
and perhaps he could use their phone.

55
00:03:52,600 --> 00:03:54,400
The stranger thanked her and left.

56
00:03:55,600 --> 00:03:57,400
Now Barbara had been polite and helpful 

57
00:03:57,600 --> 00:03:59,400
but she hadn't taken any chances.

58
00:03:59,600 --> 00:04:01,400
And when her father called, she was safe.

59
00:04:19,600 --> 00:04:22,400
Friday night was movie time for Sally and Elizabeth.

60
00:04:22,600 --> 00:04:25,400
Their parents alternated weeks taking them and picking them up.

61
00:04:27,600 --> 00:04:29,400
Friendships are easily made in a crowded theater

62
00:04:29,600 --> 00:04:31,400
and when two older boys struck up a conversation

63
00:04:31,600 --> 00:04:34,400
and moved next to them, they were secretly pleased.

64
00:04:45,600 --> 00:04:47,400
At intermission Sally found it flattering to have her friend

65
00:04:47,600 --> 00:04:49,400
see her in the company of older boys.

66
00:04:49,600 --> 00:04:51,400
And when they asked if they could take the girls home

67
00:04:51,600 --> 00:04:53,400
She was all for it.

66
00:04:53,600 --> 00:04:55,400
She asked Elizabeth to call her folks and tell them

68
00:04:55,600 --> 00:04:57,400
that they could ride with their friends' parents.

69
00:04:57,600 --> 00:05:00,400
Elizabeth was tempted but decided it wouldn't be right.

70
00:05:01,600 --> 00:05:03,400
Sally was disappointed.

71
00:05:15,600 --> 00:05:17,400
When the show was over and they were leaving,

72
00:05:17,600 --> 00:05:19,400
the boys suggested that if Elizabeth couldn't go with them,

73
00:05:19,600 --> 00:05:21,400
why didn't Sally come?

74
00:05:21,600 --> 00:05:23,400
Sally thought it was a great idea

75
00:05:23,600 --> 00:05:25,400
and asked Elizabeth to tell her folks that

76
00:05:25,600 --> 00:05:27,400
her parents had picked her up.

77
00:05:27,600 --> 00:05:30,400
Elizabeth didn't like the idea but Sally insisted.

80
00:05:33,600 --> 00:05:36,400
So, Elizabeth left alone. 

81
00:05:40,600 --> 00:05:42,400
Not any of the boys she went with had a car,

82
00:05:42,600 --> 00:05:45,400
so it was fun riding with the older fellows.

83
00:05:48,600 --> 00:05:50,400
But when they drove right past her house 

84
00:05:50,600 --> 00:05:53,400
she became concerned.

83
00:05:58,600 --> 00:06:01,400
When they arrived at Lookout Peak she was frightened.

84
00:06:01,600 --> 00:06:03,400
She tried to convince herself that there was nothing to worry about,

85
00:06:03,600 --> 00:06:05,400
but when they parked off the road she knew

86
00:06:05,600 --> 00:06:08,400
she had gotten herself into something she couldn't handle.

87
00:06:11,600 --> 00:06:14,400
At midnight her parents became alarmed and called the Nelsons.

88
00:06:14,600 --> 00:06:17,400
Yes, Elizabeth was home. Hadn't they picked up Sally?

89
00:06:17,600 --> 00:06:19,400
No. Over an hour ago?

90
00:06:19,600 --> 00:06:21,400
Of course she can talk to Elizabeth.

91
00:06:21,600 --> 00:06:24,400
Between guilty tears Elizabeth told what had happened.

92
00:06:27,600 --> 00:06:31,400
Sally had been found dazedly walking down the road from Lookout Peak.

93
00:06:31,600 --> 00:06:34,400
It was a night they'll long remember.

94
00:06:34,600 --> 00:06:37,400
In fact, Sally may never be able to forget it. [She had been raped]

95
00:06:38,600 --> 00:06:40,400
Often seemingly innocent places can turn out to be 

96
00:06:40,600 --> 00:06:43,400
just where wrong associations are made.

97
00:06:43,600 --> 00:06:46,400
Mary met Robert at just such a place.

98
00:06:46,600 --> 00:06:48,400
Robert frequented the malt shop in his spare time

99
00:06:48,600 --> 00:06:51,400
which was considerable as he finished high school and didn't work.

100
00:06:52,600 --> 00:06:54,400
Here he sought out the company of younger teenagers

101
00:06:54,600 --> 00:06:57,400
because he wasn't accepted by those of his own age group.

102
00:06:58,600 --> 00:07:00,400
Mary and her girlfriend could always be found

103
00:07:00,600 --> 00:07:03,400
at the malt shop after school.

104
00:07:08,600 --> 00:07:10,400
Mary had seen Robert before

105
00:07:10,600 --> 00:07:12,400
and thought he was very good-looking.

106
00:07:12,600 --> 00:07:14,400
So she was naturally flattered when he

107
00:07:14,600 --> 00:07:17,400
singled her out and struck up a friendly conversation.

108
00:07:17,600 --> 00:07:19,400
He was fun to talk to and they discussed

109
00:07:19,600 --> 00:07:21,400
everything from cars to movie stars.

110
00:07:21,600 --> 00:07:23,400
When he offered her a ride home

111
00:07:23,600 --> 00:07:25,400
she was only too happy to accept.

112
00:07:54,600 --> 00:07:56,400
They drove around for awhile and talked.

113
00:07:56,600 --> 00:07:58,400
Mary was a good listener and Bob [nickname of Robert] enjoyed 

114
00:07:58,600 --> 00:08:00,400
nothing more than talking about himself.

115
00:08:04,600 --> 00:08:06,400
Mary knew her mother would be upset if she 

116
00:08:06,600 --> 00:08:08,400
came home with an older boy, so Bob

117
00:08:08,600 --> 00:08:10,400
dropped her at the corner.

118
00:08:20,600 --> 00:08:23,400
After that they saw a good deal of each other.

119
00:08:23,600 --> 00:08:25,400
At first Bob was willing to see her at the malt shop.

120
00:08:25,600 --> 00:08:28,400
But as time went on he became jealous of her friends.

121
00:08:28,600 --> 00:08:31,400
and insisted on their spending more time alone.

122
00:08:52,600 --> 00:08:54,400
They began to go to secluded places

123
00:08:54,600 --> 00:08:56,400
and their relationship became more intimate.

124
00:08:56,600 --> 00:08:58,400
Mary knew things were getting out of hand 

125
00:08:58,600 --> 00:09:00,400
because Bob became more and more demanding.

126
00:09:00,600 --> 00:09:02,400
But not wishing to lose his friendship

127
00:09:02,600 --> 00:09:04,400
or the prestige she enjoyed from her friends

128
00:09:04,600 --> 00:09:06,400
for having an older boyfriend,

129
00:09:06,600 --> 00:09:08,400
she complied with his desire.

130
00:09:14,600 --> 00:09:17,400
Then Mary found she was in trouble [euphemism for pregnant used at the time] and had to tell her parents.

131
00:09:17,600 --> 00:09:19,400
But now it was too late for advice and

132
00:09:19,600 --> 00:09:21,400
Mary had to be taken out of school and

133
00:09:21,600 --> 00:09:24,400
placed in the guidance of juvenile authorities.

134
00:09:24,600 --> 00:09:27,400
Unfortunately, Mary's story is not an unusual one.

135
00:09:27,600 --> 00:09:30,400
Too many young girls are flattered by the attention of older boys

136
00:09:30,600 --> 00:09:33,400
and don't realize until too late that these boys

137
00:09:33,600 --> 00:09:36,400
who cannot compete in their own age group,

138
00:09:36,600 --> 00:09:38,400
are often not well-adjusted and demand too much

139
00:09:38,600 --> 00:09:41,400
in a relationship with a younger girl.

140
00:09:41,600 --> 00:09:43,400
You see, it's often the things that are done without

141
00:09:43,600 --> 00:09:46,400
thinking that get young people into trouble.

142
00:09:46,600 --> 00:09:48,400
Trying to move too quickly into a world of grownups

143
00:09:48,600 --> 00:09:50,400
with a young person's fate often causes heartache

144
00:09:50,600 --> 00:09:53,400
and disaster.

145
00:09:56,600 --> 00:10:00,400
