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:
• 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.
