For the past few days I've been disturbed by the kidnapping of Carlesha Freeland-Gaither. She is a hard working young woman, age 22, who was simply trying to get home at 9:40pm at night. A brute snatched her right off of the street and took her in his car. It was all caught on camera.

I can finally breathe a sigh of relief after just learning that she has been found alive in Jessup, MD by police. I feel as if a weight has been lifted.

What disturbed me most about this case was how this young woman was taken with witnesses around watching. One coward drove up, saw everything, and then chose to simply back up and "mind his own business." It can happen to any young woman if she's not aware. Carlesha actually shook hands with the perpetrator right before he bum rushed her and dragged her into his car. This is a good case of how and why young women should not ever be trusting of strange men -- especially when alone.

I am extremely happy with the mainstream media's response to this case. They have been on it from the beginning and I believe that is what contributed to her being found. So many young black women disappear like this and no one seems to care. The perpetrator will be found (if not already) and will not be able to target young black women like this anymore.

Hopefully this also sends a message to any more like him out there -- you will not get away with this, leave our young girls and women alone!

Thanking God at this moment and sending love to Carlesha and her family--
