115 out of 300 million is a speck.
Sure it's a tragedy that even one is kidnapped but what is all this paranoia about so low a number in a country this size? More MSM mind control?
LOL, yeah, I guess, unless the "speck" is one of yours.
BTW, according the NCIC, approximately 750,000 the disappearance of a child was serious enough that a parent called the police, the police took a report, and the police entered that report into NCIC (in 2001). Surely, most of those were probably runaways, or misunderstandings, or "family" abductions, but the author's 115 number sounds absurdly low.
Maybe she is citing resolved, prosecuted cases, but then there is the fact that many children simply disappear.
Traditionally, authorities have been slow to act in missing child cases. I, for one, am glad things are changing.
And how many were kidnapped while walking to school? We're probably talking in the neighborhood of a dozen, if that.
I've noticed this even in my small IL town. We homeschool and live across the street from the local elementary school. The drives there are crammed with parents picking up and dropping off their kids at the start and end of school, despite a good chunk of the town being within easy walking distance of the school.
I remember walking .6 miles just to get to the bus stop when I was growing up. In sub-zero (F) Michigan weather sometimes. And sometimes I'd walk/jog home 4 miles from school after track/CC practice w. books and all. We wonder why kids are getting obese?
