Many parents decide to teach their kids about Stranger Danger. The importance of being vigilante, that when a stranger approaches you that you do not know, to yell "No" and go to your parent or teacher.
But some parents take education too far. These parents definitely did but organizing a kidnapping in order to teach the child that strangers are dangerous.
The family, from Missouri has now been arrested after arranging the kidnapping of a 6 year old boy. The boy's aunt, Denise Kroutil, 38, asked her co-worker, 23-year-old Nathan Wynn Firoved, to do the kidnapping because " our [child] is too nice, he’s too open, he’s too polite." The boy's mother, Elizabeth Hupp 25, and grandmother, Rose Brewer 58, were also in on the plan.
After getting off the bus on Monday, the boy was kidnapped by 23 year old Nathan when Nathan showed him a fun and said "you will never see your mommy again" and " you will be nailed to the wall of a shed." The boy was then driven around, bound by his hands and feet and a jacket over his eyes. He was then blindfolded and brought to his home and to the basement where he was undressed and told he would be sold into sex slavery. the family kept in touch with the procedure via phone along the way.
After an hour, the boy was told to go upstairs where his family was waiting for him to discuss "Stranger Danger" The boy was said to be terrorized but the family insiste they have done nothing wrong. All four people were charged yesterday for kidnapping and child abuse and are held on $250,000 bail.
