Abducted girl, 5, found overnight
in playground was ‘targeted’

Philadelphia Inquirer, by Frank Kummer*

Original Article

Posted By:Calvinesq, 1/15/2013 12:13:47 PM

A 5-year-old girl abducted from a West Philadelphia elementary Monday was found early this morning barely dressed and crying in an Upper Darby playground, say police. Upper Darby Police Superintendent Michael Chitwood said that Nailla Robinson, taken by an unidentified woman in a black Muslim-style face covering from the Bryant Elementary School just across the border in Philadelphia, was found about 4:40 a.m. today. Authorities say they believe the child was targeted, but did not know the woman who abducted her.

Comments:
* and Emily Babay and Mari Schaefer

Questions: The abductor wore a hijab or a burqa (not clear from article). Could she have been identified without some sort of removal of the face covering?

Second question: Why didn´t the person who oversaw the release not follow proper procedures? Did the administrator feel intimidated into not pressing for ID or other verification?

I´m not jumping to conclusions, but the questions need to be asked.

Time to move with her Auntie and Uncle in Bel Air. Glad she was recovered.

My first thought on seeing the video was how can the Phila school system let someone into the school dressed that way. To protect children we have got to stop being so P/C. The person could just as easily had a weapon. If people don´t want to identify themselves they shouldn´t be allowed to enter.

I don´t understand why they are waiting to question the child. As time goes by, her memory of the events will become less clear and may become embellished.

I wonder if they will now ban burkas and hajibs since this was an obvious disguise and I don´t think "Tiffany" is a traditional Muslim name. There is more to this story than is being related in the press. How did the woman know the child´s name?

Said on the news the teacher was a sub, but I would think they would know the child should not be able to go with anyone not being identified.

I think they always take anyone, especially children, who have been abducted to be checked out medically first before questioning. And children are interviewed and questioned by a child psychologist who knows how to draw information out using drawings and age-specific questions.

No excuse for the school not to have followed procedures. We went to pick up my grandchildren at pre-school one time and my son had forgotten to tell them that morning that the grandparents would be coming for them. Everyone at the school knew us as we had picked them up many times before. No way would they give them to us this time until they had called my son at work to verify no matter how well they knew us. The school should have called the child´s mother even if this abductor did show ID. IDdoesn´t mean she had permission to take the child.

My thoughts, #5. Why would a 5 year old leave school willingly with a stranger shrouded in a black burqa?

#5 and #8: I seem to recall from the TV news last evening that the mother also wore that kind of garb, or something similar. Perhaps this led to the child not questionning.

#7, I´ve seen some of the ´liberal´ responses you´ve left here, but even you must know that at YOUR grandkids school, there is something YOU have that allows them to be as specific as possible in adhereing to the rules.
BUT because of liberalism, and it´s proponents like YOU, that child is just collateral damage in the war AGAINST ´discrimination´.
Democrats DO NOT CARE ABOUT PEOPLE. They only care about ´groups´ from whom they can derive votes.

Looks like #10 needs to up his meds. Just because you don´t agree with someone´s remarks doesn´t make them a ´liberal´. Especially when their remarks are neither unsound nor unusual...

I have the answer, and it can be in place by the weekend.

Put up "This School is a Kidnapping-Free Zone" signs.

Viola, problem solved.

I don´t have a clue what #10 is talking about, does anyone? Children at ALL schools should be safe from being abducted by anyone. All schools should be as careful as my grandkids school was with all children. Of course the school was wrong.

Maybe I misread some of your responses, but regarding what you have that the other woman did not, I was speaking to your melannin content.
The PC inherent in the left has allowed this to happen; God forbid someone there ask the woman to LIFT HER VEIL, but you and the Mrs.? Sit and wait while we contact the parents.

Oh, and #11? Very simple search function; look up his other repsonses.
I guess gun control is a very conservative measure? Amongst other comments.
I do not disagree at all with what he said TODAY, I had to write on a very teeny keypad. What I was saying was that HE will be held to each and every regulation regarding removing a child from school, but NOT a burka´d woman.
That was all.

A five year old child is unlikely to question what adults do. Older children than this girl have been taken by the hand and led away.

I and the MR. were more than happy to sit and wait while our grandchildren´s parents were contacted before we were allowed to take the kids home. If the school was this strict and thorough about following their security procedures, even though they knew us well and on a first name basis, it meant our grandchildren and all the children there were in a secure place with good administrators. None of us have any idea what happened in the Philadelphia school, so everything is mere speculation. If they didn´t require parental permission to take a child out they had no security to begin with.

#19, I agreed with you regarding the necessity for controls at schools; I laud your patience and wish society had a greater expectation of your behavior out of everyone. Sadly, we know that is not normal anymore. Poor behavior is the norm.
I was trying to make the comment that #16 was regarding why you were made to adhere to the rules, and why the burka´d woman was not.
I did not call you a liberal. I stated that I have read some of the ´liberal´ things you´ve written. Big difference, #11.
I will say that to me, the equivocation I´ve seen in your comments(Tamron Hall a balanced reporter? Hillary Clinton DEFINITIVELY fell down and bumped her noggin, and all us conspiracy theorists are nuts?) leads me to believe that your sympathies lie somewhere in between.

A good day to all.

First Amendment enthusiasts are thrilled that Mike Adams, a criminology professor at the University of North Carolina-Wilmington, won his lawsuit against administrators who denied him a promotion because of his conservative, Christian views. Adams joined the university in 1993. He was an atheist at the time. By the year 2000, he had converted to Christianity and become an outspoken political conservative. He eventually wrote columns for Townhall.com.

Nearly six months after the disastrous launch of Healthcare.gov, with the website running smoothly and more than five million people signed up as open enrollment heads to a close, a new glitch has come to light: Incorrect poverty-level guidelines are automatically telling what could be tens of thousands of eligible people they do not qualify for subsidized insurance. The error in the federal marketplace primarily affects households with incomes just above the poverty line in states like Pennsylvania that have not expanded Medicaid. The mistake raises the price of their insurance by thousands of dollars, making insurance so unaffordable many

Playing classical music such as Beethoven and Mozart to young children boosts their concentration and self-discipline, a new study suggests. Youngsters also improve their general listening and social skills by being exposed to repertoires from composers including Ravel, Shostakovich and Mendelssohn. In addition, they are likely to appreciate a wider range of music in later years, according to a study from the Institute of Education, (IoE), University of London.

ANTIOCH, CA. - Police say a man with every intention of robbing a Wells Fargo Bank, entered that establishment on Monday morning and approached a bank teller. Without saying a word, the man took out a note and handed it to the teller. The only problem was...the teller couldn´t read the note. According to police, the teller was unable to decipher the handwriting and then contacted her manager for assistance. As the teller consulted with her manager, police say the suspect made a break for it, exiting the bank through the back door.

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes.

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively
