Most kidnappings are perforfmed by a child's parent. The state of Missouri has tough laws regarding kidnapping. Unfortunately, law enforocement policies vary from agency to agency.
Christian County has one of the most bizzare policies in regards to parental kidnapping/custody enforcement. They'll prosecute only those circuit court rulings that come from the county. Ironically, an order from the same judge could have a different effect on the outcome - just depends on which building he was sitting in when he made the ruling.
