    This mornings news on the freedom found by the missing people located as a result on one of them escaping and calling 911 is a good feel, but at the same time gives a chill when you think about all the missing people in this country and the world. The three brothers identifed, for the moment, as "persons of interest", will most likely be charged in a criminal indictment abducting and holding these people. Best justice for these three brothers if found guilty, send them to general population in this countries worst prison. Nothing else should need said, but justice was served.

    I looked at some web sites this morning and found the FBI.gov lists a report on 12/31/11 that 85, 158 missing, where 37, 371 are under the age of 18 and 9,832 are between 18-22 years of age. On Trutv.com it states 2300/day as a rate of missing people. A 1999 study identified as NISMART-2 by the Dept. of Justice on ncjrs.gov details 1,315,600 missing children. I've been scratchin my head trying to make sense of these numbers and nothing seems to make a accurate account of what is going on with this reporting. I realize that any number of 1 or more is nothing that a parent or loved one would want to endue the emotions of someone lost, but these numbers are horric as any war could show as loss of life.

    I went to missingkids.com, which is the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children and found this below:

    "MISSING CHILDREN:
    • From 1984 through March 2012 NCMEC has assisted law enforcement with more than 187,800 missing-child cases resulting in the recovery of more than 175,200 children.
    • In that same time frame NCMEC’s toll-free national Hotline 1-800-THE-LOST® (1-800-843-5678) has received more than 3.5 million telephone calls.
    The U.S. Department of Justice reports
    • 797,500 children younger than 18 were reported missing in a one-year period of time studied resulting in an average of 2,185 children being reported missing each day.
    • 203,900 children were the victims of family abductions.
    • 58,200 children were the victims of nonfamily abductions.
    • 115 children were the victims of “stereotypical” kidnapping. These crimes involve someone the child does not know or a slight acquaintance who holds the child overnight, transports the child 50 miles or more, kills the child, demands ransom, or intends to keep the child permanently. "

    If you have ever traveled across the country and you notice dilapidated buildings, shacks, abandoned trucks and trailors, and RV's you can wonder if there is anybody living or held against their will in these locations. These possible lodgings don't even count the places that you can't see or those areas that may be under ground. I'm not painting a picture for a scary movie, this can be very real. That strange neighbor you may have or even the good neighbor could be harboring people against their will. Maybe we all need to be alittle nosy of these locations and trespass at will, eavesdrop as necessary and ferret out any potential locations that are doing deviant desires and imprisoning people against their will. We discuss freedom many times, but their is never freedom for someone held against their will.

    Does anybody reflect what is meant to be held captive and live in your own small cell, eat (whatever), live and sleep in your own feces and urine, and fear the door being unlocked for your captors to do whatever they want to you. Think about you as a child trying to survive this inhumane nightmare treatment. A 12 year old or younger being molested by someone 30 years or older than you. Having a child by this monster and watching years go by and the same things happening to your child while now the both of you are in captivity.

    For the life of me, I know that Satan lives and this is as close to Satan as I can think of what is happening to our friends, family and children as these people (animals, I will call) perform at will on any unexpected human being they find. These scumbags that abducted and mistreated the three women and possibly more are typical of many neighbors we think are geniune model citizens. Few knew that something was horrible going on. There was one report where I think the Police did not properly investigate.

    I realize that citizens must comply with the law, but I now believe in open season on everybodys property. Where are these over 1 million missing? All citizens should just be as nosy with all property neighbors as possibly. Let's find all the skeletons and chained imprisonment of people. Look in RV's in back yards and driveways, barns and old buildings, basement windows, houses and anything that appears as underground. I bet we can find some of those 1 million missing. Thousands of bodies may be located and will burden our police authorities. While they investigate the bodies, we use up many of their resources and we look for more. It's time for citizens united to start looking for the missing. The authorites are overwhelmed and handicapped with looking for the missing, it's up to a citizens united effort.

    Amc I'm not sure that we need to be ..."Look(ing) in RV's in back yards and driveways, barns and old buildings, basement windows, houses and anything that appears as underground"...

    That sounds like encouraging people to tresspass on other peoples property.

    If we see something that looks suspicious WITHOUT tresspassing on someone elses property then hell yes call the cops, but no I won't be going into someones backyard and driveways looking in RV's or windows.

    We all know that there are many people who shoot first and ask questions later.

    These types of crimes when discovered makes one wonder just how many runaways are really runaways, I realize that the police have limited resources to track older kids, 14 years and older, because of the so-called runaway factor,but there must be a way to better ascertain who is an abducted person rather than someone wanting to be not found.

    I am very much in favor in favor of strong penalties.

    Penalties are for after the fact, I think that maybe if the civil libertarians would relent on suspected child abusers questioning and registration perhaps some of these horrible acts could be prevented, just a thought.

    I'm for drones hovering over neighborhoods. I'm for police authority doing their jobs investigating instead of pay lip service because they are over-worked. I'm for a society to get over their fears on police and FBI investigations. I'm for the public to inform the authorities whenever something is questionable. We the public are our own enemy because of mistrust and fear we allow the criminal element to kill our love ones, abduct our children and steal our property. Why? Is it because most are afraid to say anything that place them in the gun sights of a criminal? I think much of it is a lack of common sense knowing our place in life and showing respect for life. This is a country of greedy and care for nobody but themselves character.

    I'm just sick of all these missing people and they are not missing because they don't want to be found. Tell that to the children that are stolen from their parents. Did they just run away? No! Not the ones 12 years and younger! It is absurb to even try to say they wanted to run away. I can believe maybe 1%. When we have thousands abducted, something is wrong.

    On the news in my area is where a Kansas Police authority refused to place a Amber alert for missing 18 month old girl. It's been days and just now tonight Kansas suffering from public response is now putting an Amber Alert on public TV, radio and bill boards. What happen? There seems to be a careless attitude on missing people. You go missing, you are on your own to escape, nobodys coming for you. Try telling that to the 18 month old. Our society is sick. No wonder we have hundreds of thousands missing to as much as 1.6 million. Sure some may be found dead long ago, but of that number many are alive and are held captive. I can agree some are running and don't want to be found and for that reason, why? Abuse, fear, mentally challenged, what? America treats the missing people as throw aways. Not my problem! Well someday you will be faced with a close friend or family loved one or maybe yourself under these tragic events of abduction. Will you feel the same after that? I don't think so.

    If you could ever get a truthful vote across the nation on how men in America view women, you would see where women have a lot of road to cover to get out of the second class category as human beings. A majority of these missing are women, girls and female children, get the picture? You have recent news of an AF officer that is about to get convicted first in civil court and than the military UCMJ will have him after the local authorites are through with him. Why is it that women are treated as such? Women are not paid at the same level as men across labor. Women are subjected to harassment by their male management. Women are beat up on the streets and police turn a deaf ear or conspire to cover up details that would aid an investigation. What's wrong with these male stero-types that win dominance over women?

    I am just beginning to see possibly a turn in these men vs women ego trips. Women are making successes, but it is slow. To see success women often have to ovecome great odds against them, some dehumanizing and painful. To see those three women that were abducted in Cleveland most cannot imagine the horror that was inflicted on them. To make matters worst is that there are men who will say they deserved it. They are not men in my vocabulary.

    So why there is little response to this post is not surprising. There's no excuse, just some women and children that get caught up in some criminal demise. So what if they are missing and are found in a shallow grave. This is typical of the mindset of those who have little to say about life and an ability to ignore changes for the better.

    Go about your simple lives and just let more women and children go about missing.
