Kidnapping is wrong in any circumstance. I have heard of cases where children have been kidnapped for a specific purpose. A while back there was a teenage girl who was kidnapped by a husband and wife. The reason they kidnapped her was to make her a "second" wife. They sexually assaulter her and brainwashed her as well. The authorities ended up catching them but she will mentally wounded for life.

Other cases of kidnappings that occur are when a man or woman kidnaps their own child in order to hurt the spouse and make them suffer. It is horrible that this happens. The child is the one who suffers dramatically in the long run.

Kidnapping is to be codemned by all and the kidnapper must be punished properly. I believe the there is always a bad purpose behind the kidnapping. The purposes are of a variety to gain something illegally, to take revenge against somebody, to dupe or decieve somebody, to make a living as cruel person to the society. I hear from the media that there are people who are l roudies engaged by someĀ  people . Even the politians use such people to intimidate ordinary and innocent people. Such tactics and techniqus are also spread through media, cinema and crime stories also. We see that the terrorists use such tactics to maitain a fear among the innocent citizens.
