This is just yuk.

SACRAMENTO – Police are commending an 11-year-old boy who evaded two men who attempted to kidnap him in the Pocket area Friday afternoon. —SacBee article

I saw this article yesterday and immediately called home to make sure everyone was on alert. Watch out for slowing cars. Don’t accept a ride with strangers. And never, ever let them grab you. Kudos to the potential victim who swung his backpack at the grabby male. I relayed the tale to my oldest child who said, “Gee Mom, he must have had a heavy backpack–” So I guess kudos are in order for Sac City schools, since our kids have heavy backpacks.

This is just one of those reminders…look out for your kids. Go over a few safety tips with them. It may have happened over here, but it can happen anywhere. I suspect with media attention, the suspects have probably moved on to pedophilic pursuits in another neighborhood. Yuk yuk, and another yuk.

May your children and mine be safe.
