    The boy may be difficult to distinguish from the million other kids that look like him but the barf bag suspected kidnapper should be easy enough to spot.

    I think the Amber Alert System is a great invention. Unrelated to this kidnapping I think we need to change some of the Amber Alerts to Brown Alert when the kidnapping is by one of the child’s parents after a custody dispute and no threat of physical violence to the child is suspected. The alert could remain in effect to find the child but not with the same intensity as an Amber Alert.

    A loving parent violating a court order by kidnapping his own child is different than some scumbag kidnapping, sexually abusing and eventually killing the child.

    After that guy's caught & thrown in prison he'll discover a whole new meaning to sexual abuse.

    Guys, I know this guy looks like a freak but I really don't find this all that funny.

    Somewhere out there he has this 11 year old boy and is doing who knows what to him.

    It makes me cringe just to think about it. Maybe having a child has made me soft but I really feel sad for Adam.

    in case it ever happens, re-read your quote when your ex-wife takes off with your child and then let us know how intensely you want others to search for your missing son / daughter that you may never get to see again.

    Sad thing is this scum was in jail for the same thing and that's where his dad met him. Idiot took him in and let him care for his kid? I'm not sure how you do it but maybe the moderators could put a tab up so we could let each other know if you have an alert in your area.

    in this case, the father is an idiot!!! [​IMG]

    who, in their right mind, would let a known sex offender take care of their kid.

    stupid...just stupid!

    Incidentally, this kidnapped boy only lives about an hour away from me. It's big news on the local station.


    I just saw on the local station that the dad and the suspect were in jail together where they met. The two became friends and roommates and the suspect helped the dad w/ his kid. The dad had no idea that the guy is a sex offender and despite the laws here, the suspect never registered as a sex offender. The dad even signed for the guy to pick his kid up from school as needed, because the guy never registered here as a sex offender the school or anyone else had no knowledge of his history. Because no body knew of this guy's history nobody stopped him.

    The father may not be bright but it's not his fault for not knowing the guy's history. I just saw the dad on the news and he's really worried.

    okay, if the dad didn't know the roomates history, then i semi-retract my post.

    but, considering where they met (in jail for crying out loud), i would still have put some modicum of sensibility on the dad to do a little research. the dude could have been a serial killer for all he knew.

    I agree with Ted. That's not the best place to get a new sitter. From what I have seen he still hasn't been found...[​IMG]

    Geez, so you're saying if the kid is found the first thing they should do is shoot his Dad? Should they do it right in front of him? Sounds a little harsh unless you're Pol Pot or Hitler.
    I agree, that the Dad messeed up big time but it sounds like he was manipulated by that dirtbag cellmate of his from the start. I hope this ends well, these Amber alerts have been very effective in my area. Makes you wonder why they didn't think of them before.

    From Post #6:


    If too many Amber Alerts are initiated due to a loving parent kidnapping his own child in violation of a court order then people driving down the highway responding to the alerts will feel less urgency to check license plates in search of the kidnapper. It would be like crying “Wolf!”

    I don’t know the statistics but I believe that most kidnappings by parents violating court orders in custody disputes eventually result in the return of the child to the rightful parent.

    Hopefully this means they are getting closer.

    The biggest thing is that the kids aren't in danger when taken by a parent. had a friend that happened to and the F.B.I. did treat it like a kidnapping and found the kid and mom.

    Also they have found him, The molester was also found.
    For once the law does something right for once. But I think if they waited much longer it would have been a different ending.

    I only hope that no abuse came to the kid. I know it's a stretch but just maybe....This fruit cake will be gone for a long time now hopefully. Please somebody bust out those nasty ass teeth.
