Wendy revealed she’s particularly concerned about the safety of her son, Kevin Hunter Jr. "When my kid goes out to walk the dog, every time, make sure your cell phone's on. See something, say something, keep your hands out of your pockets, walk straight," she said. "Why are we still dealing with this? Every day. I still am very fearful. My husband would definitely confront...me, I'd call the cops."
