I'm pretty sure she'd have to be legally emancipated to stay against her parents' will. Those not doing anything could have seen her acting up in the store and knew she was just upset with her parents. Yup, say something and call the cops.
EagleKS, yup that woman is damn lucky you showed restraint. Glad it worked out for you. She probably still didn't get the message since she didn't have to talk to the cops about what she did.
My response to this PERSONALLY would have been:
911, plate number, vehicle description and alleged kidnapper descriptions (I might and I reiterate MIGHT have intervened verbally but would NOT have drawn) However I would have probably followed the van and gave the 911 dispatcher all the info and what I was doing. HOWEVER, the only time I would feel the need to draw would be if a weapon was produced. I have friends with kids, and I have SEEN what can happen when kids dont want to listen or leave.You would SWEAR they getting beaten to death or being kidnapped by the way they scream rant and rave. The worst thing that Ive heard caused me to run outside and next door was from my one time neighbors daughter was NO NO NO I DONT WANNA GO WITH YOU LET ME GO HELP ! When I got over there, they were trying to get her to a doctors appointment, I knew the people and this kid was 15 years old and had severe Bi-Polar and Schizophrenia so this was a normal occurrence. MORAL of this story, is things are NOT always as they seem.
