Hi Nicole —
Thanks for reading and for your feedback.
This was the first time I have ever contacted a police department, so I don’t think my reaction can be considered impulsive. My immediate impulse was to find resources that could help me understand exactly what I was dealing with. When I learned that simply having that video on my phone could lead to child pornography charges, my options became very limited.
If you have suggestions about how I could have handled it differently, I’m happy to hear them!
