Gyrfalcon: RightWingWacko: TuteTibiImperes: So 4,600 kids are abducted by strangers every year? That's more than I expected. It's almost half as many as are shot by guns every year.Citation Please:1,337 - The number of American kids under age 18 who died from gunshot wounds in 2010(Otherwise known as over twice as many)
Skr: It was a dumb prank but the parent that said "My daughter is still terrified," Barnett told The Daily Mail. "She's like, 'What if they take me?'" doesn't truly appreciate the lesson their child just learned.Kids should be scared of getting taken, walking in traffic, touching hot stoves etc./alternate life lesson of 'don't be a dumbass' added at no extra charge.
ThatGuyFromTheInternet: netringer: Pribar: They are lucky it didn't turn into a video about how to treat multiple gunshot trauma....My thought, too. We now have concealed carry in Illinois.Might I recommend against shooting at a person carrying a child? Beat the shiat out of him though.
gingerjet: payattention: Ahh, the old 'stranger danger' thing. Thanks to this little tidbit of fear mongering, most people under the age of 25 are terrified of everyone on the planet except their mom and dad. Of course, most child abuse/abduction is from a family member, but why stop a good cash cow/scare tactic/advertisement in the name of facts?I think its worse than that. Thanks to this fak'n fear mongering just talking to a child can get you thrown in jail. I'm still pissed off when some asshole came up to me and asked me how I knew the kid I was with (which was my fark'n nephew I was taking to the childrens theatre) and then preceded to ask the kid if he was frightened (of course he was - some batshiat crazy women he didn't know was yelling at us). I told the woman to go fark off (trust me - his father uses worse language) who then ran off somewhere.
WhoopAssWayne: In my neck of the woods, that will get you shot. It just doesn't happen. I mean, damn.
BradleyUffner: dilettantegrrl: These two idiots were filming a prank, just like all their other videos, and when they got busted they started calling it an "awareness video". Complete bullshiat. If they had two brain cells to rub together they'd be ashamed. If they had tried that bs in Texas or any other heavily armed state, they'd be dead. And our gene pool would be better for it.Nope, they called it in to police to warn them BEFORE filming and said it was a documentary. They didn't give enough notice, but they did NOT change their story after getting caught.
