There are uncountable cases on our side of the globe too ... Sevilla and Huelva in Spain; The Little British Girl who was kidnapped from her bed in Algarve, Portugal and the grown up young woman from Austria, who is now writing a book about her misfortunate and horrible ordeal.
The problem is that these kidnappers are MENTALLY ILL.
The best piece of advice to provide your grandchildren and children with is; NEVER TALK TO, NEVER GO WITH AND NEVER TAKE CANDY OR FOOD FROM STRANGERS ... This should be instilled and taught as part of the school programming.
The penal system in Spain particularly does not punish to fit the crime, and it is a revolving door ... However, thanks to the Sevillian couple, who had a daughter named Marta of 17 or so, who was killed by an ex boyfriend, his brother and a friend. Her body was dismantled and thrown either in the Famous Guadaquilvir River, or buried and only this one jailed terrible juvenile deliquent knows where ... The parents of the dead girl, went to the Office of the President asking that he be given a life sentence for what he had done ... The Judge and Jury followed with a life long sentence, the 1st in Spain in 35 years !!!
Well, this subject makes me extremely saddened, that there are pyschos on this planet who are capable of destroying the lives of others.
Barbara, and Colleague Members: thanks for all the posts.
