  1. Having grown up in California it is unbelievable to me that this actually happens – and that so few people are aware outside of the country (sometimes city/town) where it happens. Sadly our broadcast news channels don’t cover this news – things we should know, I guess they just don’t have time once they have covered the Kardashians, Lindsey Lohan, and Amanda Bynes….
    What does it say about our society that we watch the trial of OJ Simpson, George Zimmerman and the football player arrested for murder rather than demanding coverage of these human rights issues. For a moment I even felt bad for the kidnappers – they don’t understand why some people don’t want them to mine, they just want a job so they can feed their families probably. This certainly does not justify their criminal acts, just goes to motive.
    We must all act quickly and let the government know that their behavior condones these criminal acts and they need to do the job the were supposed to do.

  2. This has gone too far! People are being shot. I applaud these courageous people,but they need the help and support of the authorities or else this will end in a disaster.

  3. being an activist is one of the riskiest things you can do nowadays. There are so many groups of people that need help and can't defend themselves
