          Abducted from School

          July 11, 2008

          You might think of the classroom as a secure, protected environment for learning, but how safe is your child’s campus? Could a stranger take your little one right off the school grounds?


          Stranger Danger 

          Six-year-old Kendall was abducted from a private Catholic school by a 47-year-old man she had never met before. Dr. Phil sits down with Kendall’s mother, Natasha, to hear her terrifying account of the abduction and the surprising racial aspect of the case.


          Did the school release Kendall to a total stranger just because he was black?


          Better Off behind Bars?

          Natasha sits face to face with the family of Thomas Dorsey, Jr., the man who abducted little Kendall. Emotions run high as they make a heart-felt plea for their son. Would Thomas be better off in jail or a mental institution? Plus, the officers who rescued Kendall give their accounts of the tense final moments of the search.


          “That is not my son. That’s not him.”
