Authorities on high-alert following close-call abduction

Rockland, Mass. Police On High Alert After Unusual Abduction


Authorities in Rockland, Mass., are on high alert after a 9-year-old boy was first abducted and then let go.

according to CBS Local News, "at about 2:15 p.m. Tuesday, police say the boy "was guided to a vehicle" by a man whom he thought was a friend of his family."

The man reportedly then drove around for 25 minutes before letting the boy free.

Fortunately, the boy didn't suffer any abuse, but police are worried the man might strike again.



Rockland County Police Chief told KMBC news, "My concerns it that this may have been sort of a dry run for someone who was considering an abduction."

Authorities says another possibility is that the abductor got 20-25 minutes into the ordeal and decided he couldn't go through with it.

Police are stepping up patrol in the area and an investigation is ongoing.

A friend of mine was out having a run, well into his teens, in the 70's, when a van pulled up and someone said something to him. He stopped running and got closer to the van to hear them better. The people in the van grabbed him and tried to drag him into the van. Fortunately, he was also a wrestler, broke the hold and got away.
This is not a new thing, nor does it just happen to small children.

Giving a ten year old a knife and telling him to kill a pedophile or pederast is a suicide mission. If attacked from behind a well placed stomp to the attackers upper foot will stop him; if followed by a well placed knee or foot to the groin it will do the trick. A rolled up magazine, newspaper or school book to the area just below the cavity of the ribs; the solar area will drop any pedophile or pederast and will not put the child at risk. Giving a child a knife only adds to the arsenal the pedophile or pederast has, these are very dangerous people who have nothing to loose; while your child has everything to loose.
Protect your children with love and common sense, not with weapons that can be used against then by attackers or law enforcement.

First of all how does a school allow a stranger to take a child? There are rules and guidelines in taking a child out of school, even picking up at the end of the day. My kids would know immediately that something was not right. I spoke to my youngest and told him to tell the principle or office staff to call me if that ever happened. The school is totally responsible. Totally!,,

Sadly, kids are parent-napped from schools often. Many custody orders are ignored are children allowed to leave with non-authorized strangers due to forged notes and illegal schemes by an abusive non-custodial parent, and naïve, uninformed staff. Teachers don't keep track of students every hour of the day. I dealt with this problem for 15 years. Noncustodial dad learned where security stood and would sneak into school and remove our son from lunch or recess. If seen, dad would just smile and wave like he was supposed to be there. Sometimes he would even sign in, flirting with front desk ladies and they believed his sob story story - no matter I was the only legal parent permitted to get my son. There are sharp observant staff, but also careless and oblivious don't follow court orders because they don't realize the child is in danger. When dad had his drunk girlfriend pose as a relative - despite my son insisting it was a lie, They failed to call me and my son was missing for days.

Your son should have been taught after the first time to yell loudly "I AM NOT SUPPOSED TO GO WITH YOU, as well as to run straight for the office or a teacher, repeat that he isn't supposed to go with them and then have school call you. SOMETIMES it's the responsibility of the family (custodial) to have that piece in place. You are responsible for one while schools are in charge of hundreds or more.
