Kidnap or Molest a Child, Go to Jail Forever; Kill a Child, Face Execution!El Observador (2007)
The Missouri kidnapping of Shawn Hornbeck, an eleven-year-old at the time of his abduction in 2002, and the subsequent kidnapping of Ben Ownby, age 13, one month ago by the same 41-year-old abductor must alert us all to the harsh reality of child abduction, child molest, and child murder. While most children live safely in their homes with their loving families, too many children do not reach adulthood without traumatic abuse and its lifelong consequences.
