Witness reports possible student abduction

NEW CASTLE — New Castle police investigated a possible attempted abduction of a girl at her bus stop.

A witness at the Lower East Side bus stop reported the incident to the girl’s mother and police.

He reported that around 8:30 a.m. Thursday — while the grade-school-age girl was sitting on the curb waiting for the bus — a black Jeep Wrangler with no top was driving down Oak Street toward East Washington Street when it stopped near the girl.

As the witness walked toward the Jeep, it sped away and did not stop for a stop sign. He gave a description of the driver to the police.

An officer later interviewed the girl, who said a man wearing black glasses stopped and asked her if she needed a ride to school.

Before she could answer, the Jeep took off, she told police. She said she does not know the man in the Jeep.

Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 fell from the sky in Donetsk, Ukraine, on Thursday, killing all 298 people aboard. Many are speculating that Russian rebels (supported by Vladimir Putin) are responsible for downing the aircraft. What do you think?

Yes. All evidence points that way.
No. Everyone is so quick to point fingers, but there's not enough evidence to support claims of Russian guilt.
I'm not sure. I'll just wait until the investigation is over to make up my mind.
What is up with these Malaysian Airlines planes? I know one airline I won't be flying any time soon...
