    Unless they were 18, I'd make my kid come with me.

    What kind of charges could they file? She was still underage and under their care. Get real!

    Good lord! I am in VA and got that Amber Alert on my phone. Whew. Glad to know it was just a teenager being difficult!

    Regarding the charges, if the 'abductors' werent her parents then I suppose that the 'child' could press assault charges. But, if they were her parents, then its iffy because of her age. Each state has different rules on how they treat a child that age.

    IMHO its silly and that child should be punished for acting like an idiot and cause such a ruckus.

    I can't believe more people didn't call the police or try to follow the van. I agree that the parents had every right to take the girl but anytime a person is forced into a van with a struggle like that you SHOULD call the police and try to make sure the person is alright.

    Teen girls can be SO dramatic......[​IMG]

    Seriously though, if I witnessed that, it would scare the heck out of me and I would have definitely dialed 911. It bothers me that the lady with the bag walking by just veers out of their way a little and continues on.

    but if they moved and had not taken her because she refused to go they would get charged with abounding her, I don't understand why they would even say that there maybe charges filed. it makes no sense.
