    Not sure how the father should be charged with reckless endangerment, I would have done the same thing, and am sure most parents would also if they were told that their children were being abducted!!! He should not be charged for anything, he was told a lie!

    Absolutely agree! If my children said they were in danger I’d react the exact same way. Charges or not he did tue right thing. Luckily nobody was seriously injured or killed!
