Arthur how can you saw that. They need to be prepared and have a plan they know will go smoothly. How would you like it if a kid was abducted and it was yours and b/c they did not try there plan out to see how effective it would be your kid never was found. You can never be to prepared. Although I dont pay taxes right now the day I do begin paying taxes I would be glad to see my tax dollars going towads training and public awarness. I am actualy a Volunteer Firefighter and we pratice just about every week. We have the trucks out once a week if not more. We pratice everything from operating the trucks, to how to properly hook up to a hydrant, to how the right way to preform a search of a building when you canot see but inches from in front of you, to keeping up on the diffrent types of construction and how building are being built diffrent.

If you had Neighborhood Watch members like Rod Scott, you'd be less worried about child abductions, home invasions and break ins

"You can never be to prepaExactly. Extinguishing a fire is not like child abduction. The drill isn't going to affect pedophiles from baiting children into private areas. There are no drills for armed robberies of convenience stores, banks or has stations. It is a very false sense of security to think this will either impact incidents of child abductions or to think they will even have the procedures in place to react to one. They spent two years on this to practice it once in a very specific scenario. You extinguish fires every week. Practice or not. Peace. red"

Since 98% of child abductions are by family members, this is a waste of time and money.

I applaud the Ontario County Sheriffs Department. Thank you for being a leader in this effort. And for those who want to be negative - go ahead - the police departments are used to those who judge from an uneducated position on the facts and figures. I find it humorous when people quote percentages (or present their opinions as though they were actual facts) like they've done some sort of "study" . Apparently they have information that the people who have dedicated their lives to protecting us don't have access to.

The drill was stupid. You don't need statistics or percentages or an education. I have my degree. What benefit will truly be the result because of that drill? How about two years researching prevention? Well prevention isn't really part of law enforcement's job duty is it? They don't get to play with their helicopters, guns and sirens. Law enforcement never looks laterally. They are not, in general, very good at looking outside the box. The way they set that drill up it could have very well been a parent disciplining their child. The parent could have been putting their child by force in the car to go home and do homework. Or whatever. A real abduction would not go down the way they had it in this STUPID drill. A real waste of money and time.

Again, spoken from a distance, by someone who wasn't there and wasn't involved - but is apparently VERY smart (in addition to having a pretty big chip on his shoulder concerning cops). If it was a waste of money, I'm glad mine was wasted.

They videotaped the abduction. You didn't need to be there. You didn't know I wasn't there until now. Stick to facts. There are people I realize that having law enforcement agencies conduct these drills are a good idea. I am not one of those people. You are. It is not a matter of one's educational level that sways one from thinking one way or the other. You cannot argue, for example, that we could not find a handful of people with doctorate degrees in several fields including criminal justice and police science who would think this drill was a waste of time and money. They are out there on both sides of this. Peace.

I never said having a degree of any kind was important. I said "those who judge from an uneducated position of the facts and figures" ( of this type of crime). Unless you are in law enforcement or with a community agency that deals with this problem, your understanding of how to deal with this is not at the same level because you could not possibly have all of the information that they have on it.
