First of all, parents ought to give guidelines to their children. They should play their very important role to build up a family safety plan. Parents need to educate their kids to think logically, in order to do so, kids must be taught that questioning, reasoning, and criticizing are good requirement to stay safe. They have to stay aware of the surrounding issues and keep alert. For example, teach the kids about stranger and common lures used by kidnapper such as giving sweets to seduce them and many more. Other than that, parents should also listen to their kids’ problem. Ask if they have question, and listen carefully to their answer. Parents have to put themselves into their children’s shoes. Moreover, it is essential to know where the kids are going, who is with them and when they are suppose to return home. Parents can check on the location of their children if they keep a list of acquaintance’s phone numbers.
Besides that, an implantable chip touted is another effective solution for child kidnapping. The chip can be surgically planted under a child’s skin, putting it into the fabric of clothes or inserted under the skin by injection. With this chip, parents can easily detect their children’s situation, once they are out of the certain area the special alarms will send out a SOS signal. This is because it has an SOS button, which sends an SMS and position coordinates to a predefined mobile number if the child is in trouble. A…...

...Kidnapping for ransom is a common occurrence in various parts of the world today, and certain cities and countries are often described as the "Kidnapping Capital of the World." As of 2007, that title belongs to Iraq with possibly 1,500 foreigners kidnapped.[22][23] In 2004, it was Mexico,[24] and in 2001, it was Colombia.[25] Statistics are harder to come by. Reports suggest a world total of 12,500-25,500/year with 3,600/year in Colombia and 3,000/year in Mexico around the year 2000.[26] However by 2006, the number of kidnappings in Colombia had declined to 687 and it continues to decline.[27] Mexican numbers are hard to confirm because of fears of police involvement in kidnapping.[28] "Kidnapping seems to flourish particularly in fragile states and conflict countries, as politically motivated militias, organized crime and the drugs mafia fill the vacuum left by government."[21] In 2009, the Los Angeles Times named Phoenix, Arizona[29] as America's kidnapping capital, reporting that every year hundreds of ransom kidnappings occur there, virtually all within the underworld associated with human and drug smuggling from Mexico, and often done as a way of collecting unpaid debts. Other major U.S. cities that are hotbeds for kidnappings are Detroit, Atlanta, New Orleans, Houston, and Chicago.[29] Many of them are done by major street gangs near tourist attractions. During the year 1999 in the United States, 203,900 children were reported as the victims of family abductions and......

Case Law on Miranda Rights be interrogated. After Miranda had been questioned by two officers for over two hours he signed a written confession for both the kidnapping and rape charge. The confession also had a disclaimer that was signed that stated, “I do hereby swear that I make this statement voluntarily and of my own free will, with no threats, coercion, or promises of immunity, and with full knowledge of my legal rights, understanding any statement I make may be used against me." Miranda who never even finished ninth grade and had a history of mental illness and at no time during the arrest or the interrogation told of his right to counsel and he was not advised of his right to remain silent or his statements would be used against him. Later on in the case there were also allegations that the two officers told Miranda things such as if you confess to the rape charges we will drop the kidnapping charge and also said they would get him counseling for his obvious sexual deviancy. During the trial the prosecution’s case consisted solely on his confession. During the trial Miranda’s court appointed lawyer Alvin Moore, tried to get the confession thrown out when it was entered into evidence by the prosecution because the confession was not truly voluntary. The judge overruled because of his confession and Miranda was convicted on both the kidnapping and rape charges and was sentenced to twenty to thirty years in prison on each charge and each was to run concurrently. Miranda’s......

...more sustainable management. So far the most popular and successful of these activities has generally been private planting, because people are confident in this case that they will reap the benefits of their work. There is also a tradition of planting trees, particularly for fruit and fodder, on private land, whereas forest products from public land have traditionally been regarded as a "free good" in which no investment is necessary. If deforestation is to be reversed, or even slowed, this attitude will have to change. Any attempt at reforestation on the massive scale that is required will only succeed if there is commitment among local communities to invest their own time and labor in planting and protection of trees on community-owned land; and this will happen only if they believe that the benefits to them will be worth this investment. Management of common property resources is a complex business, and unlikely to succeed if imposed from outside; but to have any significant effect on the agricultural system as a whole there will have to be much more planting on public land than could be achieved by any project working in isolation. Communities will have to develop all sorts of rules governing protection, permissible livestock numbers, distribution of benefits and so on. In the past there have been many cases in Nepal of traditional management of existing communal forest, but many of these systems collapsed following the nationalization of all forest land in 1957.......

...DICTIONARY) the crime of kidnapping is labeled as abduction when the victim is a woman. In the modern usage kidnapping or abduction of a child is often called child stealing particularly when done not to collect a ransom, but to a child permanently (often in case where parents are divorced or legally separated, where upon the parent does not have a legal custody; will commit the act; then also known as ‘child napping’). The word ‘kidnapping’ was originally “kid-nabbing” in other words slang used for child stealing but it is no longer restricted to the case of a child victim.[1] Cases: 1. Lodged In Arthur Road Prison vs. Sewree Police Station on 8 September, 2008. 2. Amar Mishra vs. State Of Delhi on 23 September, 2011 Section 359 Kidnapping □ Under federal and state law, kidnapping is commonly defined as the taking of a person from one place to another against his will or her will, or the confining of a person to a controlled space. Some kidnapping laws require extortion or the facilitation of a crime. A parent without legal custody rights may be charged with kidnapping for taking his or her own child, in certain circumstances. In Badlu Shah vs. Emperor[2] it was held that Kidnapping and abduction do not include the offence of wrongful confinement or keeping, in confinement, a kidnapped......

Alcan Case

...Alcan Case There are many reasons that Alcan should or should not build a mine in Orissa State and each side has a valid argument. Alcan should abandon the idea of building this mine, but it’s not exactly simple. If Alcan goes through in building the mine then people will think they are only worried about profit and not about society. For a big company like Alcan it is important that they look good in the public eye, as it can help them in future ventures, so they should take the socioeconomic route and try to do more good than harm to the societies they’re working in. Creating the mine will displace thousands of people. These people are the Adivasis who are native to the land. Some of the Adivasis say that they would rather have the land that they already have than the jobs that this mine will offer. A company creating jobs for thousands of people is usually a good thing. In this case jobs aren’t as important. The local people that would be working these jobs won’t even know what to do with their money. If Alcan could offer the Adivasis new land to settle on that would almost benefit the people more than money. A company like Alcan probably gets protested on all their business ventures, it’s just the kind of business that they’re in. When the protests go so far that people are getting killed and kidnapped, it’s time to rethink the possibilities. Travis Engen should tell shareholders that the company is holding off working in Orissa, at least for now. The......

...As Michael Scholey shifted his weight across the canvas bags of carrots that filled the back seat of a battered car that was half way between the Armenian-Georgian border and his destination, Tbilisi (see Exhibit 1), he wondered whether his efforts to bring power to the city of Tbilisi for the millennium celebration would pay off. His uncomfortable journey from Yerevan, which was already three hours over its forecasted five-hour length and still incomplete, had turned into a symbol of the ordeals of his first year of efforts to bring electricity to the consumers of Tbilisi. ________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Professors Witold J.

Case Study - Slavery in Chocolate

...Case Study - Slavery in Chocolate 1. What are the systemic, corporate, and individual ethical issues raised by this case? • Local and Global Laws are not enforced due to lack of resources or the desire to enforce the laws. • The number of farmers (1M) and the system makes it difficult to identify the source of the cocoa beans harvested using slavery. • Global decline in cocoa bean prices drove farmers to use slavery to lower labor cost. • Corporations are unable or unwilling to take action to improve the situation in harvesting the cocoa bean. • The fundamental demands of shareholder profits drives corporation to turn a blind eye to how cocoa is harvested. • Chocolate Consumers are kept so far removed from the Cocoa source that they are unaware or choose to be ignorant of the cost involved to create chocolate. 2) In your view is the kind of child slavery discussed in this case absolutely wrong no matter what or is it only relatively wrong i.e. if one happens to live in a society like ours that disapproves of Slavery. I believe that Slavery is wrong. Kidnapping is wrong. Forced labor for children is wrong. I would like to believe Slavery is absolutely wrong but this is coming from a Western perspective where we hold personal freedom as a right. We also don’t see the populations of poverty that some third world countries face. In countries where there is a high infant/child death rate due to poverty, and starvation, living as a slave could be seen as a......

The Lindbergh Kidnapping

...The Lindbergh Baby Kidnapping Jeff Harris 5/19/2015 There are three main parts that make up our criminal justice system in America, the police, courts, and corrections. The Lindbergh baby, Charles Lindbergh Jr., was kidnapped from his bed sometime between the hours of 7:30pm and 10pm on March 1, 1932. ( He was suffering from a cold and was left to drift off to sleep by his nanny, Betty Gow, with the window open. ( When his father came to check on him and found him gone, he found a note demanding a $50,000 ransom. Three days later, another ransom note was found demanding $70,000. March 9, 1932 a man named John F. Condon, a retired teacher, claimed to have made contact with the kidnappers. He placed an ad in the Bronx Home News offering to be an intermediary. Mr. Condon alleged to have met with the kidnapper in several graveyards. He used the alias “Jafsie” and he dubbed the kidnapper “Graveyard John.” ( The ransom was delivered on April 2, 1932 and the parents were told they could find the child on a boat off the Massachusetts coast called Nelly. The baby was not there. Finally, on May 12, 1932 the baby was found less than a mile from the New Jersey mansion. He had been dead from a fractured skull since the night he was taken. The case became a murder case at this point. Many people were involved in the investigation but few clues were found. Colonel H. Norman Schwarzkopf was the official lead investigator. The......

...It is near impossible to conceal a kidnapped child in the world today. There was a case where a child was taken by his father, from his home in the United States, to Iran. In this case his parents had recently divorced the mother was unable to get her child back, having gone through courts and biding by the law. It was only recently the U.S. courts demanded that the child be returned. The parent, or parents, that the child is taken from may feel that their lives are over. They go through many emotions ranging from sad to angry. First they have to deal with the fact that their child is now gone and then go through the stressful process of trying to find them and get them back. Ask any parent of an abducted child and they will say that the wait is the hardest. Not knowing whether or not their child is alive, waiting for that phone call that will decide the rest of their lives for them. That is a phone call many of the parents get. Most abducted children do not return home, having begun a new life, if it was a parent or relative abductor, or being abused and killed by an unfamiliar abductor. Here are a few facts about child abduction 1 child goes missing every 40 seconds -354,000 abductions occur within the family each year -over ½ of the abductors are men -49% of abductors have criminal records -4,600 stranger abductions occur each year -sexual assault is most common as a motive -75% of all abductions involve a weapon of some sort. After everything that happens to all parties...

Lindberg Baby Kidnapping

...Unit 1 Lindbergh Baby Kidnapping Naisha Whitmire Kaplan University CJ101 Lindbergh Baby Kidnapping On March 1, 1932, twenty-month-old baby Charles Augustus Lindbergh Jr was kidnapped from his nursery on the second floor of Lindbergh’s house in Hopewell, New Jersey. Baby Charlie was the son of Charles Lindbergh, a famous aviator, and Anne Morrow Lindbergh in which was “America’s Family”. When the child’s nurse, Betty Gow, went to check on Charlie around 10:00pm, he was gone but Lindbergh nor his wife had the child. An immense investigation was led by the New Jersey State police along with the New York City Police and the Federal Bureau of Investigation. There was substantial evidence which includes a ransom note and forensics information which led to the suspects. The Lindbergh case was so significant that it became the “Trial of the Century” and eventually the suspect was tried, convicted, and executed. Upon the discovery of missing baby Charlie, there was a ransom note in the nursery on the window sill found by Charles Lindbergh that read: “Dear Sir, Have 50,000$ redy 25000$ in 20$ bills 15000$ in 10$bills and 10000 in 5$ bills.

Lindbergh Baby Case

...The Lindbergh baby case was a big case for its time, and I’m going to be discussing how the three core components of the criminal justice system played into the case. The three core components are police, courts and corrections. I will also discuss how other things were applied to this case like sentencing and the preliminary hearing. The Lindbergh baby case was a case that was open for 2 years, during that time police and Federal law enforcement were trying their hardest to find the missing Lindbergh baby, and punish the kidnapper. On the initial night of the kidnapping in March of 1932, there was a ransom note found in the baby’s crib, asking for money and indicating the baby was in good hands. With how times were back then, the police did what they could with the resources they had, though it wasn’t enough as the baby’s body was found only 2 months after the investigation started, with evidence pointing to that the baby was murdered the night of the kidnapping. For the next 2 years police used their expertise in narrowing down suspects, when finally they received a bunch of hits on the ransom money. The dedication of the police force finally prevailed in the arresting of Bruno Richard Hauptman. Hauptman was indicted in September 1934, on charges for extortion, and again in October 1934 for murder. The courts took over and his trial began January 3rd, 1935 and lasted five weeks. The case was built on circumstantial evidence such as handwritten ransom notes found, and......

Kidnapping in Colombia

...Case Study-Kidnapped In Colombia 1. The company made a number of mistakes in preparing Melissa and Dan for their trip to Columbia. First off the company should have never let the couple go into such a hostile territory uninsured. Kidnappings were a frequent happening in Colombia; therefore, the company should have provided some sort of ransom insurance in case something was to ever happen. Granted the couple were warned about the political troubles and violence in Colombia, they were never really safeguarded against potential crimes. In addition, the company didn’t prepare the couple for the language barrier in Colombia. Purchasing everyday merchandise or communicating with the locals on a day to day basis was really hard. The company should have either provided a translator who could be at the couple’s service whenever needed, or the couple should have taken some sort of introductory course to help them learn the basics of the language. And lastly, the organization should have provided better protection for the couple as a whole. Did the company make its best effort to put them in the safest possible region in the country? As a valued member of the organization, Dan should have received the best possible protection from the company. 2. Dan and Melissa also made a lot of blunders in preparation for this trip. For one they didn’t prepare themselves. They should have conducted more research on the country and understood the cultural similarities and differences. They......

Kidnapping Cases in Malaysia

...This has been all over Twitter and Facebook but just in case you haven’t heard about it yet… Chin Xin-Ci was abducted at the Curve last Sunday evening and she managed to escape, thanks to her wits. I can only pray that other girls (that includes myself) can be as swift in action and thought. I don’t usually share stories like this (or the ones that go around on emails a lot) but this was just too close to home. Please read her full account below, and SHARE it on FB. ///////////////////////// As I sit here writing this, I am just so grateful to be alive. To think that 30 hours ago I had a knife to my throat, face to face with the threat of being kidnapped and raped. It was a Sunday, at 5.22PM. I was alone, walking towards my boyfriend’s car in level B2 of The Curve, Mutiara Damansara. He was not in town, and I was running errands with his car. Just as I was putting my shopping bags in the rear seat, the rear car door was slammed against my back, and a meat cleaver was pressed against my throat. A man covered my mouth with his hand, and whispered not to scream. He then shoved me onto the floor of the backseat of the car and waved the cleaver at me, reminding me not to scream. He was skinny, wearing a baggy turqoise blue t-shirt, had a thick moustache and short curly hair, approx 5’8″, mid-30s, and of Indian descent. At this moment, second man appeared. He was also in his mid-30s. He was wearing a red t-shirt, had a crewcut, and was of Malay descent. He grabbed my car......
