Someone, probably an vengeful orphan, decided to ruin it for the rest of us and break down the popular travel countries where people are most likely to be kidnapped. Thanks a lot asswipe!
Why the hell would you put something like this out there for anyone’s mom to easily find when they’ve announced their next trip? Do I tell your mom every time you regain consciousness from a big night out and race off to the urgent care office at the sex clinic?
Per the troublemaker’s article: “Public policy groups estimate there were more than 100,000 kidnappings around the world last year, including locals and foreigners.” Top travel/kidnap destinations included Mexico, India (!?), Colombia and the Philippines. Honorable mentions goes to Brazil and Kenya.
There’s a handy map, in case your mom isn’t a fan of reading, otherwise the kidnapping situation for each country is duly reported in wretched detail.
