Java owners discuss incident

http://cdapress.com/news/local_news/article_6d926fa9-1900-50eb-b07e-56694cde7d0b.html

From all I gather, social media was alerting people to watch out for a white van that was targeting children. The guy who owns the Java on Sherman coffee house (if you want to Google Maps it, search for "Zips Drive Inn, East Sherman Avenue, Coeur d'Alene, ID" because asking for Java on Sherman shows you their old location at 4th and Sherman) saw such a white van in his parking lot when he arrived at work a few mornings ago. There are families with children living across the street from his lot, so he called the cops and reported it. The cops came over, blew away this guy's dog for reasons as of yet unknown, confiscated the body, put a note on the windshield, told the owner of Java he needed to call a towing company to have the van removed, and left.

And now people are attacking the business owner for doing what he thought was the right thing.

Y'know, it would be nice to live in a town that makes the national news when GOOD things happen...
