As crime in the United States of America continues to grow; what may be some solutions to this problem? We as Americans have been facing horrendous criminal issues such as murders which falls into a variety of categories like vehicular homicide,killings of our children and murders that can involve offenses of a sexual nature; robberies which include simple robberies to grand larceny, carjackings, domestic violence, corporate crimes, and identity theft. The list can go on and on but can stricter rules and regulations diminish some of these problems? Another plan that may assist is the expansion of our security measures such as an increase in our police personnel. There are numerous thoughts,questions and courses of action that we as Americans can adopt. This subject should create some qualitative and quantitative responses.
Crimes about Abduction
There are thousands of people being abducted worldwide and we’ll never know what happened to them. A few years back, I heard of the most shocking abduction story about a father who kept his daughter in the basement for many years – His name is Joseph Frizl. He kidnapped his own daughter, Elizabeth at the age of 14 years old “to teach her a lesson”. Kept her in the basement and physically and sexually assaulted her until she bore 7 children; she was kept for 24 years and was only found out when she was already 42.
The mother did not bother looking for her because the father made Elizabeth write a letter stating she ran away with a cult and they should not look for her because she will not come back anymore.
Elizabeth’s dad, made a tunnel-like apartment in their basement to make room for Elizabeth and her children. They have a room, a toilet, a small kitchen and area for washing clothes. The children never knew there was a world outside and Elizabeth was so scared of her father she did not try to escape as she was warned by her father that if they touch the locks on the door they will get electrocuted.
One day, the older daughter of Elizabeth fell ill and she had to be taken to the hospital. Joseph Frizl had no choice or else the girl will die in the basement. So he took the girl to the hospital. Doctors were shock because of her lack of Vit. D (from the sun), she has no teeth, and her condition was a result of neglect. The doctors started asking Frizl about the mother. So, he had no choice but to let Elizabeth out of her prison.
It was a shocking story and until now I cannot believe that a man like that exist.
