Woodstock Ont abduction- 8 y.o. Tori Stafford

As seen on the news since Wednesday April 8th, 8 year old Victoria 'Tori' Stafford was abducted coming out of school, by an unknown woman caught on surveyance camera as seen near the end of this gripping video they've put together, featuring U2's "Mothers of the Disappeared". I hope she's found soon, safe and sound:

Strange similar incidents emerged within the same week, including an 8 year old girl murdered and disposed of in a suitcase by her friend's mom and Sunday school teacher in California... Then a Montreal girl who had been abducted by her mother when she was 8, escaped 2 years later (last week) and called 911 from out west in Vancouver, and is now being reunited back with her father...

It shows how our world is slowly decaying to a worrying/sick state.
Not in the US but every corner of this blue planet.

Maybe we are the only species that fcuks up it's own young ones.
Just read in the papers here, a one month old baby starved to death because his parents were drunk and allegedly forgot to feed him.

Sh..t and end of sermon.

I do not agree that "our world is slowly decaying to a worrying/sick state." I do understand where you are coming from though, as I agree that crimes like kidnapping, child sexual assault, etc are extremely sick and disturbing. But I don't think that just because they do happen, it necessarily means the world is heading in that direction in general.

I think that it's really important to remember that stuff like this is not THAT common (especially in Western countries where child slavery markets do not exist to the extent that they do in parts of Asia and Africa.) And the risk of it happening now is not much greater than it was in the past. It's just that now, for whatever reason, these types of stories are what sell newspapers.

It's kind of a double edged sword because publicizing stories like these make it easier for the public to recognize kidnapped children and possibly help reunite them with their families, while at the same time, they give a distorted picture of the world and make parents terrified to let their children out of the house.

Murder charges laid in Victoria Stafford case.

Michael Thomas C. S. Rafferty and Teri Lynn McClintic were charged Wednesday May 20th with the abduction and murder of Victoria Stafford. An extensive search for Victoria's remains continues by police.


Charged:
28-year-old Michael Rafferty
- First degree murder
- Kidnapping
- Sexual assault causing bodily injury.

18-year-old Terri-Lynn McClintic
- Kidnapping charges upgraded to First degree murder.

Pleaded guilty to 1st degree murder on April 30 2010. She was sentenced to life in prison.

The abduction was sexually motivated, according to sources. Both parties appeared at Woodstock Provincial Court on May 20, 2009, to answer to the charges and were remanded in custody until May 28. Rafferty broke down sobbing in court and said: "I didn't do it." He had a clean record. One of his last entries in Facebook a few hours before the crime: "Everything good is coming my way." CTV News video coverage
