Girls, 10, 12, kidnap toddler

ENID, Oklahoma — A plot uncovered by police involving two girls may give new meaning to the word "kidnapping.” Police said the sisters, ages 10 and 12, sneaked into a neighbor's home under the cover of darkness about 5:30 a.m. Thursday and took the homeowner's 1-year-old son. The girls took diapers, a stroller and other baby supplies from the home and left a ransom note threatening, "if you want to see your son again then you won't call police and report him missing and you will leave $200,000 on the sofa tonight and we will return your son back safe,” police said. The note was signed, "the kidnappers.”
The parents of the alleged kidnappers should get a Parenting Award. It's safe to say that these two are going to have some interesting lives ahead of them. I'm sure neither are on the honor rolls at their Enid Elementary school. Can you imagine the conversation at a Thanksgiving dinner in the future?
"Hey sis, remember that time we kidnapped the neighbor's kid?"
"Yeah, you tried to rat me out and said it was me that kidnapped him!"
"Oh I know! Good times, good times."

Can't be too stupid. If a 10 and 12 your old and outsmart you and steal your kid right out from under your nose I'd say it is not the re-teens that are the stupid ones. Is still super sad to see 10 year olds so about money that they kidnap for it.
