This poor kid...

Members of his family staged a kidnapping to scare the child who was "too nice" to strangers.

My heart aches for him. Just wow.

The sheriff's office said the boy's aunt, Denise Kroutil, 38, enlisted the help of a co-worker, Nathan Wynn Firoved, 23, to stage a kidnapping to scare the child, and that the boy's mother, Elizabeth Hupp, 25, and grandmother, Rose Brewer, 58, agreed with the scheme.

On Monday, Firoved allegedly kidnapped the child after he got off a school bus and said he would never "see his mommy again," authorities said. Firoved also showed a handgun to the now-sobbing boy, then drove around in his truck, and finally tied him up and covered his face with a jacket when the child wouldn't stop crying.

The blindfolded child was then taken to family's home, put in the basement, and his aunt allegedly removed the child's pants and told him he could be sold into "sex slavery," the sheriff's office said. The boy was eventually led upstairs and lectured about the dangers strangers could pose.

I was OK with what they did until they took his pants off, that is way over the top.

I'd be OK with the ride in a truck to scare him if nothing else was working. Nothing like an object lesson.

To those that feel scaring him was wrong, how would you have convinced the kid that being too friendly to strangers is a bad thing?
