Told my daughter the same thing. It is much better to be shot in a Wal-mart parking lot than on a dark dirt road 30 miles from town.
Also taught her what it meant to fight like a wildcat. Eyes, knees and nuts are all vulnerable.
When the news of the missing barista was first reported, the police released a security camera photo of the young lady and the kidnapper walking away.
Made me sick to think of her being intimidated so much that she wouldn't fight at that point for her life, knowing later that she was killed.
This kidnapper jumped the rail in a court room hearing earlier this year and was tased.
