From Merri's Musings:

According the FBI's National Crime Information Center (NCIC):

  • 85% to 90% of the 876,213 persons reported missing to America's law enforcement agencies in 2000 were juveniles (persons under 18 years of age). That means that 2,100 times per day parents or primary care givers felt the disappearance was serious enough to call law enforcement.
  • 152,265 of the persons reported missing in 2000 were categorized as either endangered or involuntary.
  • The number of missing persons reported to law enforcement has increased from 154,341 in 1982 to 876,213 in 2000. That is an increase of 468%.
Who is responsible for this? Who can we sue? Because that's what our society has become. A bunch of "victims" who need to sue for coffee being spilt or getting fat on big Macs but we certainly can't protect the real victims of society. Want to hear more? Merri has it.
