  • Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is lesson 242. Today we're going to cover the difference between kidnap and abduct. Yeah I

  • sometimes hear people say they're synonymous and to a point they're

  • correct. That both of them mean that somebody's taken illegally and somebody

  • is taken by force usually against their will. Well that's mostly around where it stops though. There are

  • clear differences when it is much more likely we'll use either the word

  • kidnapped or abduct. All right. So let's cover this. Let's look at the note here. If someone is kidnapped, they are taken

  • illegally and by force usually the kidnapper will hold a person to make a

  • demand. So this is one of the key parts about if we are more likely to use the word kidnap.

  • Usually the kidnapper contacts the family or contacts somebody with the

  • demand. In that case you're more likely to use the word kidnap. So to make a

  • demand, especially a ransom. So if they're asking for money

  • that's a ransom. This will usually fall into the kidnapping category. This is the

  • one that the public knows probably more than any others. You know, maybe some bad

  • guys stalk out some rich family take their child and then ask for money. This

  • would going to the kidnapping category. Definitely. All right. So and then they ask for

  • ransom. We say from the victim's family. So it could be from the personal family,

  • or possibly from their company. I don't know if you remember, it's about ten

  • years ago now. There was a movie called, "Proof of life " with Meg Ryan and Russell

  • Crowe. Where he worked in a South American country and some guerrillas

  • took the husband and they thought well he worked for this rich company that

  • they would pay up the money. And then well that part didn't work out, but that

  • would be a good example of where they might do it and make the demand from the company. Because they think the company's rich, and the

  • company will come up with the money. So that would have been an example of that.

  • Or government. Yeah. We see this all the time. I remember when was it around 2004, 2005. Around that time

  • when supposedly the Taliban I think - one of the Filipino workers and they

  • were making demands from the Philippine government to try to release him. Again

  • this would go under kidnapping. So if they contact you, they make demands then it's

  • usually kidnapping. So it could be for money is the big one, or some other

  • political requests, like if they were asking the Philippines to stop helping

  • in that effort. Or if you know maybe that maybe they want to free, like this one

  • says. To free a political prisoner. So let's continue here. Sometimes a

  • kidnapper will make a political demand. such as requesting to set a political prisoner free. I've seen this one in a lot of movies

  • sometimes. Where the group especially if one of their own got kidnapped

  • they kidnapped this one and they want them to set that one free before they

  • set this one free. So this is another situation that would definitely go under

  • kidnapping. Let's continue. Let's take a look at abducted. If someone is abducted, he or she is also taken illegally and by

  • force. However with abductions most of the time

  • no demands are made. They don't even usually contact you. They have no interest in

  • contacting you. Abductors will usually keep quiet about the crime. They just kind of

  • want to disappear with the person. They usually have motives in which they don't

  • plan to return the victim. So if they don't want to return the victim, it's

  • more likely going to fall into the abduction category. So we're more likely

  • going to use the word abduct in these cases. And so let's look here. Here are

  • cases where we are more likely to use abduction. All right. Let's look at the first one here. If

  • someone is taken to become a sex slave, we have heard of this. Yeah. Maybe some pretty

  • girl, She get sold it to prostitution. She gets on drugs. They get her on drugs and

  • she could never get out. That would be for a sex slave or sold into any type of

  • slavery. It could be you know, sweatshops. You know, little children and things like

  • that. This is also more likely to fall into abductions.

  • Harems. I remember many many years ago there was a movie called "Harem" and

  • the actress was Natasha Kinski . Where they took her , and sold her to some Saudi

  • Arabian and rich Prince. Here she just became part of the harem. She just

  • disappeared there. So that would be an abduction They're not contacting anybody.

  • They're not making any demands. They want the person. Okay also "Taken" the movie

  • "Taken" more recently, with Liam Neeson . I think they made about two or three of

  • them. Where supposedly they first abducted his daughter. They weren't

  • planning on returning her. you know it was only you know, the movie of course

  • Liam Neeson used to be like ex-CIA. So he was able to hunt them down in the movie.

  • I don't know if he'd be that lucky in real life , but that's that's more likely

  • to be called abduction. Okay. Let's continue here. If someone is taken away to be a murder victim in a cult

  • sacrifice. Yeah. We don't like to talk about this one too much, but there are

  • some satanic cults out there that might actually have some sort of ceremony and

  • they actually really kill somebody in it. In this case that person is usually

  • abducted. Unfortunately more often than not, it might be a child. So that's why

  • sometimes we hear about in the u.s. how many children disappear every year it

  • would be very scary to think that you know a certain percentage of them might

  • be going in this area. So or there's also a lot of pedophile rings where they

  • kidnap the small children also for another type of sex slavery too but sex

  • slavery for children. These would definitely also go under abductions. Okay.

  • Let's continue. If a woman could not have her, or did not have not have a

  • baby on her own, and it drives her crazy enough to take someone else's child. That

  • would go under abduction. She doesn't contact anybody she just really wants a

  • child. Luckily there's not that many cases like this, but we have heard of a

  • few in the past. Good. If a parent is likely to lose a custody battle and runs

  • away, especially to another country illegally. This would also be an

  • abduction. So they still they don't want to give up their child and maybe they're

  • going to lose custody. I don't know how serious it is. You know, a lot of times

  • even when there are divorces there is, usually they get visiting rights. But in this case, I

  • don't know maybe for some reason they won't or whatever the case is they just

  • decide to run away with the child. You sometimes hear about cases like this

  • where governments are kind of arguing about it. You know especially if one of

  • the parents is from a different country and they run to their country with the

  • child that is legally their child. But technically, they weren't supposed to

  • leave. There was a custody court case going on and they they just abducted the

  • child and left with him. That would most likely go under abduction more than kidnap. Even

  • though , you have to be careful because there's also some technical rules in

  • some some governments and States about what they call kidnapping and abduction.

  • And sometimes they can vary slightly. So you got to be a little careful about

  • that. But most of the time when we're just talking about it in general.

  • You probably still can call this an abduction. Okay. Let's continue. In sci-fi movies, science fiction or some people

  • claimed in real life, to be taken by aliens for experimentation or another

  • reason. Yeah. So we never hear. Just like they said. Nobody ever says aliens

  • kidnapped. They always abduct. Yeah we never hear about

  • aliens calling somebody up and asking for ransom or making some demands. So we

  • are much more likely to use the word abduct than kidnap in this sort of

  • situation. Anyway I hope, I hope it clarifies it.You know there could be a

  • little bit of overlap between these words, but what I explained is probably

  • most true. There are certain situations where kidnap is more likely

  • to be used and there's other situations where abduct is more likely to be used. Anyway I

  • hope you got it. I hope it was informative. Thank you for your time. Bye-bye.
