    ... on the shore) that he was a policeman, Dad asked him for identification, and he provided it! Humbled, Jordan and I backtracked to shore. This man, who we learned was named Murray, is a legitimate policeman who's job it is to protect white tourists like us from falling prey to illegal tour guides like the man who tried to guide us across the water.
