Robbed at gun point

One day my son called me and said that he was robbed at gun point. He said that they took his money, cell phone, miscellaneous stuff and his car keys. I should have told him to come home. I should have him to leave the school and come home but I didn’t. What was I possibly thinking. He called the police and reported the robbery. The lady detective who took the case was young, and inexperienced. She hadn’t been a detective at that time for more than a year. She was cute, quiet speaking and appeared to have a genuine interest in my son. He would call me and say that she was trying to get his possessions back. He would say that they are meeting to discuss the case. They talked several times on the cell phone. He was very elated that he had her cell phone number. She road him in her police car. He thought he had an ally. He thought he had a friend. I did not know that he had also reported guns stolen because I did not know that he had guns. He did not know that he was being conned by the pretty detective. He did not know that she was looking at him for something else. He didn’t know that he was being conned.
What was I thinking to allow him to stay at the school? What was I thinking? A reasonable mom would have said, ‘enough is enough’. Son, you are coming home. A reasonable mom would have done that. I didn’t. My only defense this time, although a very small defense was that he did not ask to come home. Then again, even though he didn’t ask, I should have told him to come home but I didn’t. I guess he was manning up.
