  •  You have to wonder how many people... (10+ / 0-)

    ...are held like this and never escape, who disappear forever, remain captive for years and then get dumped at some point in a backyard grave. Glad these four did whatever they had to do to get free.

    Don't tell me what you believe, show me what you do and I will tell you what you believe.

      Possibly more than a million, globally. Or millions.
      Depends how we define "prisoner".

    •  I share that fear (0+ / 0-)

      These men abducted first one woman, and then a girl, and then another girl, apparently with the plan of imprisoning them indefinitely. But what did they think would happen if one of them fell ill or was injured: just let the woman die? And if there was a sick or injured child, let the child die? No medical care?  

      In the case in Austria, the 19-year-old woman who fell ill was the daughter (and granddaughter) of Josef F., who imprisoned her, her mother, and two other siblings. Josef F. dropped her at a hospital. Her life was saved--but that life of imprisonment was exposed.

      That photo of Amanda Berry with her sister and (I assume) her daughter in the hospital after her escape was just stunning. She looked radiant. I am so glad they all escaped.

      And so glad that those three men will never again harm anyone.
