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?

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.

#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.

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.

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.

LOS ANGELES – Two-time Oscar-winning actress, political activist and philanthropist Jane Fonda came under fire Thursday after it was revealed that her Jane Fonda Foundation hasn’t made a single charitable donation in the past five years, even though it’s worth almost $800,000. According to federal tax filings obtained by FOX411 and first published on The Smoking Gun, the Atlanta-based organization – of which Fonda is listed as president and chairman of the board, but receives no monetary compensation – was founded in 2004 and spent its first two years giving away large sums of money.

Three years ago, New Jersey regulators suspended abortion provider Steven Brigham´s medical license for endangering and deceiving patients. During the suspension hearing, he testified that he was covered by medical malpractice insurance. Now, as Brigham, 57, tries to regain his license, New Jersey prosecutors have submitted evidence that his sworn statement was yet another lie. They allege that not only did he stop carrying required liability insurance around 2006, but last month produced a phony insurance policy when forced to back up the statement.

No one will take it away, no matter what.” As millions of Americans receive cancellation letters in the mail, however, that pledge looked increasingly strained. “I am sorry that they, you know, are finding themselves in this situation, based on assurances they got from me,” the President said last night.

Examiner.com first reported the story. The assignment asked questions like, “Whom do you hold most responsible for the government shutdown?” and “Do you feel it is principled or irresponsible for politicians to threaten a shutdown?”

The National Football League has implemented a new stadium policy that would ban off-duty police officers from carrying guns into games. Cleveland’s police union president worried the policy would stop officers from assisting if a dangerous situation arose. Off-duty police officers often will carry their weapons on them, according to the union president, because “when we walk through city streets, we’re police officers too” and “you never know what’s going to happen, or when it’s going to happen,” he said. The head of NFL security, on the other hand, said that “the likelihood there’s

Is Barack Obama simply too busy to be Chief Executive of the United States? Apparently. One of the primary functions of the president is to keep the nation safe, to preserve it from its enemies. To do that effectively, one would actually have to maintain something of a consistent level of attention to the moving pieces that directly influence how future events will unfold. None other than the truly sycophantic thinks for a second that President Obama cares a whit for anything that does not involve fundamentally altering the social composition of this country. Or golf.

Black students are more likely to be suspended from U.S. public schools — even as tiny preschoolers. The racial disparities in American education, from access to high-level classes and experienced teachers to discipline, were highlighted in a report released Friday by the Education Department´s civil rights arm. The suspensions — and disparities — begin at the earliest grades. Black children represent about 18 percent of children in preschool programs in schools, but they make up almost half of the preschoolers who are suspended more than once, the report said. Six percent of the nation´s districts with preschools reported suspending at

Warm temperatures, colorful wildflowers. What´s not to like, about early signs of spring? Climate scientists at NASA say these early signs could be tied to global warming, and the consequences are troubling. 9NEWS talked to NASA scientist Dr. Compton Tucker at the Goddard Space Flight Center in Maryland. He said that on average, the last frost of the year is happening about five days earlier than it did just five decades ago.
