Brickbat: Stranger Danger


When her son didn't get off the bus after his first day at kindergarten in Salem, Oregon, Windy Holm was terrified. Her mood didn't improve after she called the school and was told they didn't know where he was. They finally figured out they'd sent 5-year-old Teylor Kobernik to an after school daycare. Kobernik says they forced him into a car with an employee of the daycare even as he insisted he was supposed to get on the bus. "I didn't know who she was, and I didn't know the car, and I was crying for my mom," he said. "The lady told me that my mom knew I was going to her place, but I knew that was a lie."
