CLEVELAND -- USA Today reports, "Three young women who were held captive in a residential home for as long as a decade are in 'fairly good" physical condition and have been returned to their families, but police -- who have arrested three middle-aged brothers in the case -- said Tuesday they will move slowly before pressing the women for details on their ordeal."
There has been a growing attitude that criminals are not responsible for their crime, it is a result of their parenting or environment. Therefore we do not really like to punish criminals.
The media is speculating on who taught the three brothers to be kidnappers. In other words it is not actually their fault.
The Bible said in its Jewish laws, "Anyone who kidnaps someone is to be put to death, whether the victim has been sold or is still in the kidnapper's possession." (Exodus 21:16).
