Re: Hell Hath No Fury Like A Woman Scorned: Threads About Women In Aikido

The comment about most child kidnappings being by known people, and actually mostly as part of child custody "issues," is pretty accurate. My mother, both an attorney and a psychologist, worked as a court-appointed guardian-ad-litem (the child's representative/agent in a custody battle) for decades, and such abductions were common. She once had to trace a guy to Italy, and another to Saudi Arabia (among many such abductions), to get children back to the mothers who had received legal physical custody. And many times, sadly, the children were never seen or heard from again.
