Can someone explain this one to me?



I was wondering the same thing. That was a widespread amber alert too. My family in Tampa of course got it, and were posting it on FB, people in Louisiana had the info because of the ties to Slidell. We were in Gatlinburg and got the Amber text for it. Then every sign from Knoxville to Tuscaloosa had that trucks infor on it.

"Black GMC, FL plate U59kt"

Have it in memory now. lol

Something like this going on in Tampa right now. Grandmother had custody of two young boys, biological parents broke into the home, tied up the grandmother and kidnapped their children. Now they are on a sailboat the parents bought sailing towards Mexico.


I was wondering what happened there. Seriously the Amber system is really cool how widespread it is.

I am concerned if a child is abducted by a stranger. But a parent going against a judge and taking their own kid does not concern me. I would not respond to a amber alert even if I did see them. That is unless there were other concerns. May easily be a dad that was shafted by the courts that wants to see his kids.

What if the dad was abusing his own kids while the mom watched as the reason the parents lost custody? Would you still not be worried.

ETA: I just looked up why they lost custody because I didn't know. Link below.

quote:

The department sent out a press release saying Slidell police officers responded to a hotel in that city following a disturbance call.

When they arrived, they discovered Joshua and Sharyn Hakken acting in a "bizarre manner. "

Investigators say they made comments to the responding officers about "completing their ultimate journey," and that they were traveling across the country to "take a journey to the Armageddon."

Detectives say the two small children were in the hotel room at the time. They also say they discovered drugs and firearms in that room.

Authorities notified the Louisiana Office of Child Services (OCS), similar to Florida's Department of Children and Families, who then put the boys in a foster home.

If the parents abused the kid and lost custody and then took the kid: kidnapping.

Legally kidnapping regardless of the reason custody was taken. That is why it does not bother me. If the kids are in danger then I am concerned,regardless who has custody.

Just bc you are a parent doesn't mean you have legal custody.

re: How is it kidnapping if the parents take the child?


It's kidnapping because the parents aren't supposed to have the kid without supervision. The court deemed them unfit to care for their kids. Most of the time when the parents "kidnap" these kids, it's not because they really want them back. They feel wronged by what has happened and it's them taking control of the situation with little or no consideration for the children's welfare.

So not really an ideal situation for the kid, and I have no problem calling it kidnapping because that's exactly what it is.

The courts always get everything right?

You can do what you want, but I do not equate that with a stranger taking a child with evil intentions. It may be a crime, and it may be wrong, but I cannot consider that the same.

Well shame on you if the kids are killed by crazy parents.

But you wouldn't respond to an Ambert Alert for these kids.

If all I knew was that they were with their parents, probably not. If the word was out that parents were a threat to the kids, that would be a different story.

But just because a judge says mommy gets the kids does not mean that daddy is a threat to the kid.
