From our People Today Are Smarter Than Ever Dept.:
A tribe of idiots in Missouri are in big trouble for arranging for a 6-year-old boy to be kidnapped and threatened with death “to teach him a lesson” about talking to strangers ( http://fox2now.com/2015/02/05/police-family-plots-to-teach-child-a-lesson-with-fake-kidnapping/ ).
The child’s mother, aunt, and grandmother were behind the bizarre scheme, with the kidnapping actually carried out by one of the aunt’s co-workers. After tying up the boy and threatening to kill him, the man locked up the child in his basement for several hours. According to police, the man was in cell phone contact with the child’s family the whole time.
It was just to teach the lad a lesson, insisted the idiots, who also insisted they’d done nothing wrong. Maybe it taught him not to talk to family members.
No mention of a father being in the picture. But now that we’re smarter than ever, we’ve made fatherless families all the rage.
You can bet your bottom dollar that every one of these apes was educated in public school and trained by our popular culture.
Imagine that poor little boy all alone in that nest of harpies.
