    Okay the girl had the time to use the phone, and decided to text her boyfriend? Not call 911 or even text your PARENTS?! Not blaming her, very sad that happened and I feel for her family, but simple common sense would have said to contact someone in authority. What are we teaching in school these days??

      Until you know the circumstances it’s a bit ignorant to assume she could have called someone. Maybe it was someone she kind of knew and her text was kind of serious but kind of joking too. You never know. My heart goes out to the family and I hope they heal well.

      Also what does school have to do with anything? Are you saying schools should have a class that teaches 14 year olds about kidnapping or something? I’m pretty sure kids are being taught things like English, history, math, computers and other similar subjects in school. Did you not attend school?

      When in a crisis situation like this, gunpoint and many others, people react differently. Your body enters fight or flight mode. For example, I was held at gunpoint and I literally couldn’t think or function. Judging someone’s reaction to a serious situation like this is redundant since everyone reacts differently and most times, people can’t think or function rationally.
