Guest Angie Austin, Host at Daybreak USA, talks to Mike Opelka about a police department having to cancel "High-Five Friday." Austin explains that this happened because some parents caught wind of it and believe it might upset children of color, those in the United States illegally, or those that have had a negative experience with law enforcement. She explains that if you're seven or eight you probably haven't had any negative experiences with police.

The police chief cancelled "High-Five Friday" from a few complaints to not make people who are illegal immigrants feel uncomfortable. Mike feels this makes this makes no sense, and wishes someone would raise their hand and explain that it makes no sense and we have to stop this.
