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. After 2-4 days will inform you were to deliver the Mony. We warn you for making anydying public or for notify the Polise the child is in gute care. Indication for all letters are signature and 3 holds” (The Kidnapping)
As the investigation led by Colonel H. Norman Schwarzkopf continued to finding baby Charlie, within the next two months the Lindbergh family had received over fifteen ransom notes. These notes were analyzed and the fingerprints from the envelope in which they were written with misspelled words and sentencing construction of Germanic language. Unfortunately, the fingerprints were too smudged to be used as evidence. The window had been pried open from the outside due to findings of chisel gouges on the outer window…...

...1) Introduction a. The “Babies” video showed us three different children. There was Ponijao from Namibia, Bayarjargal from Mongolia, and Mari from Tokyo. b. We meet the easygoing Ponijao, her mother and other members of her Himba tribe outside her family's dirt hut in Namibia. Curious Bayarjargal lives with his parents and siblings and a herd of cattle on their farm in remote Mongolia. Mari has a toy-filled existence in a small apartment with her parents in Tokyo. c. I was expecting more differences, because of the different cultural systems they were raised in, but I was struck by how similar their development was chronologically. This is, like, I think the theme is much more about the similarities than the differences.

Kidnapping

...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......

Gone, Baby, Gone

...Assignment: Kant’s Categorical Imperative (Deontology) Movie: Gone, Baby, Gone The categorical imperative is something we are fundamentally required to do irrespective of how we feel about doing it, and even if others around us are telling us to do something completely different. In other words, we must always do this. The categorical imperative is also a priority, which means it will always be and have always been morally good. As such, we have a duty to recognize, and accept, its moral validity and finality. This means that the categorical imperative is not good on the basis of any effects or consequences it might produce, or even because someone or something else tell us it is good to do it. It is simply good in itself. Immanuel Kant developed a set of ethics to guide our decisions and help us judge whether certain actions are morally correct.  According to Kant, the morality of every action must be carefully thought out beforehand.  Thinking about all aspects of an action, or moral testing, can help to determine if an act should be performed at all.  Kant introduced logical, objective methods to serve as a basis for distinguishing between what is right and what is wrong.  He holds a common theme throughout his Kantian moral philosophy, that every act should be an accurate representation of a universal maxim.

...There. Good. Maybe I should stop now. No? You want me to go on? Are you sure, boy? All right. Where was I? Ah yes. There followed a forty-day mourning period. Every day, neighbours cooked meals for the family and kept vigil with them. People brought over what offerings they could—tea, candy, bread, almonds—and they brought as well their condolences and sympathies. Baba Ayub could hardly bring himself to say so much as a word of thanks. He sat in a corner, weeping, and streams of tears pouring from both eyes as though he meant to end the village’s streak of droughts with them. You wouldn’t wish his torment and suffering on the vilest of men. Several years passed. The droughts continued, and Maidan Sabz fell into even worse poverty. Several babies died of thirst in their cribs. The wells ran even lower and the river dried, unlike Baba Ayub’s anguish, a river that swelled and swelled with each passing day. He was of no use to his family any longer. He didn’t work, didn’t pray, and hardly ate. His wife and children pleaded with him, but it was no good. His remaining sons had to take over his work, for every day Baba Ayub did nothing but sit at the edge of his field, a lone, wretched figure gazing toward the mountains. He stopped speaking to the villagers, for he believed they muttered things behind his back. They said he was a coward for willingly giving away his son. That he was an unfit father. A real father would have fought the div. He would have died defending his......

...Aleida Calderon Mrs. Merrell Gross ENC1101 5 November 2013 Word Count: 1364 Babies Having Babies Although the rate of teen pregnancies in the United States has declined in recent years, it remains the highest of any developed country. According to an article in cdc.gov, “In 2011, a total of 329,797 babies were born to women aged 15-19 years, for a live birth rate of 31.3 per 1,000 women in this age group. This is a record low for U.S. teens in this age group, and a drop of 8% from 2010” (“About Teen Pregnancy”). While the rates have declined, the stigma that surrounds the problem has not. Researchers have not been able to provide an explanation as to why the rate has dropped. Many parents, politicians, and researchers disagree about the significance and the effects of this issue. Some believe teen pregnancy is a small indicator of society’s prominent predicaments; others argue that it maintains those crises. Teen pregnancy has a significant short-term and long-term impact on the American economy and not only affects teens, but also the nation. Teen pregnancies have financial ramifications that affect the whole country. An article in Public Health Reports states, “Giving birth in the teen years can limit one’s social and financial well-being” (Penman-Aguilar). Many believe that a link exists between the high teen pregnancy rates and poverty in the U.S. The United States spends billions every year on sex education programs and on helping the majority of teen mothers by...

Kidnapping

...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......

Baby

..."You are going to have a baby" seven words that changed my life. On April 14th, I woke up and didn't want to go to school because I wasn't feeling well. My mom came into my room and asked me if I was going to get out of bed and go to school. I told her that I needed to go to the doctor. "Why, are you sick?" she asked. "No, I think I'm pregnant." We both just sat there and cried together. I knew then what I should not have done that night. A baby would take up all my time, the time that I needed to grow up myself. I got up, dressed myself, and didn't bother putting any make-up on because I knew I would probably be crying. We went into the doctor's office and found out that I was a little over three months pregnant. When the nurse said those seven words, I started to cry. I looked over at my mom and she had tears in her eyes. I didn't know what to think. I wanted it to be a dream, that I would wake up from and everything would be okay. We then listened to the heartbeat, which was really fast. It was really neat and it made us cry some more. The nurses asked me a whole bunch of questions, gave me on some prenatal pills to sample, and then told me to schedule an appointment to come back sometime next week. They acted like it was no big deal. Well, it was, didn't they realize that I was only seventeen years old, a senior, and not even out of high school yet. I could no longer be the carefree cheerleader, who had fun with her friends every weekend, and played beach......

...and similarities of four babies’ childhood from four different locations. Among these four babies, two babies are from urban area, Mari from Tokoyo, Japan and Hattie from San Francisco. Where other two babies are from rural area, Ponijao is from Opuwo, Namibia and baby boy Bayar is from Bayanchandmani, Mongolia. This assignment will presents below four main differences between rural and urban area babies experiences in their childhood: sanitation and safety, feeding and bathing, toys and play and family structure. Firstly, one of main concern between all these four babies is about sanitation and safety. Ponijao and Bayar were growing up within an uneducated society, where Safety and security is less concern and children play with animals and insects. Babies from rural area usually feed with unhealthy food; they don’t have stronger medication system to improve babies’ health conditions. The main goal of babies in rural area is to join their society and do same work their family do, nothing extra. On other side, Mari and Hattie both were grown up in urban cities and regularly checked by doctors and stronger medication system. Society in urban area always more concern about safety and security of babies in terms of foods, medical system. Secondly, food is a main part of everyone’s life and it is essential for everyone’s health. New born babies get their food directly from their mother and it is very important to consider their mother’s health for babies’ feeding because many......

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. (www.History.com). He was suffering from a cold and was left to drift off to sleep by his nanny, Betty Gow, with the window open. (www.clickamericana.com). 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.” (www.pbs.org). 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......

Babies

...beautiful babies: Ponijao from Namibia, Mari from Tokyo, Bayar from Mongolia and Hattie from San Francisco. All four babies are surrounded by different macrosystems but display similar developmental patterns regardless of their upbringing. All these children still must go through the same developmental milestones. In the first year of life babies undergo dramatic changes, many of these are observed in this film. All four babies are living in their own microsystems, each very different from one another. Ponijao has a big family consisting of several siblings, Bayar lives with his parents and a brother, and Mari and Hattie are the only children for their parents, which is a typical situation in developed countries. We see the babies going through the Sensorimotor Stages as soon as they were born, they all were breastfed, which is a sign that they had sucking reflexes that are connected with rooting reflex and breastfeeding. There was an episode where Babinski reflex shown: Mari was sitting in her highchair and a family cat playing with baby’s feet. I noticed that Mari had all possible toys to help her to develop mentally and physically, but she also can be seen playing with CDs and cellphones. On the other hand Ponijao was happy to play with sticks, stones beads and a plastic bottle. I saw Bayar unrolling toilet paper and feeling very happy when he finally got to its base, which he immediately put in his mouth (Oral Stage of Sigmund Freud’s Theory). Watching these babies......

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......
