No, they mean "people who won't beat my son to a pulp in order to take his
lunch money," and they mean, "people who won't grope my daughter in the
hallways just for the thrill of it," and they mean "people who won't threaten
my children with physical harm if they report a plan to bash the face of the
teacher in with a hammer."
Yeah, "people just like us;" people taught to respect our elders, to help
children, to open doors for women, to obey lawful authority.
