“No. They messed around too long to take control of the situation. I believe he belongs with his father, but that wasn’t the right way, not in America.”

“I don’t think that much was necessary. From the look of the pictures it was pretty drastic; but you’ve got to do what you’ve got to do I guess.”

“As far as the guns, I thought that was a little too much. From what I saw it was very unnecessary, but from their standpoint they didn’t know what kind of household they were going into.”

“I think he should have been returned in the beginning, and we shouldn’t have had to go to those lengths; but if that’s what it took to get him back to his father, I think it was justified.”
