The United States is not immune from a Mexico style kidnapping wave. Ransom kidnappings are already common place in Pheonix AZ (See USA Today). Yesterday, the NCT reported that Leucadia became the place for a ransom drop. A man had been told that his brother was being held for ransom.
"In Leucadia, the man reportedly saw his brother in the back of a grey car with Arizona plates, but the [possible] kidnappers punched him in the face and drove off instead of freeing his brother."
