Constant Vigilance Pays Off:  Elementary School Worker Saves 11 y/o Girl from Kidnapping after Spotting the Terrified Pupil inside of a Stranger’s Car Meet Sandra Ferguson, a teacher’s assistant at Sutter Elementary School in Antioch, California…. Scroll down to read more!

Meet Sandra Ferguson, a teacher’s assistant at Sutter Elementary School in Antioch, California.  That is her below…

On Friday, October 16th 2015, while headed to work, Sandra saw what she perceived to be a terrified eleven (11) year old girl / student in the front seat of a middle-aged man’s car.  Instinctively believing that something was wrong Sandra quickly swung her car in front of the man’s vehicle, blocking him in.  The man, 51 year old Santiago Salazar (pictured below), wound up being arrested on suspicion of kidnapping.

In an after the fact interview with local ABC television (which you can watch by clicking here) Sandra explained that she could immediately tell that something was wrong so she blocked the car in, exited her vehicle, ran up to the girl and explained that “I said: ‘Sweetheart, is that your dad?’ She said, ‘No he’s a friend.’ I said, ‘No, he’s not your friend!’ I told her, ‘You get out of that truck right now!’ It was kind of like a superwoman power thing.  I can’t believe I did that.”

Sandra got the schoolgirl out of the car and called police.  Salazar, as it turns out, had allegedly grabbed the girl’s wrist and pulled her into the vehicle after luring her over.  

School principal Debra Harrington said that Sandra was a “guardian angel” and thanked her for stopping “something terrible from happening”.  Memo to the Folks: Two (2) words:  Constant Vigilance!

Memo to the Folks continued:  It is often true that no good deed goes unpunished (and also that many times good samaritans get shafted) but it is also true that “All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent”… okay so let me paraphrase Thomas Jefferson (who paraphrased Monticello…) and say that “All it takes for an elementary school child to be kidnapped, sexually battered and either physically or emotionally destroyed for life (long or short term) is for people to focus on their iPhones or their other momentary distractions and not pay attention to their surroundings”.  In short… as Mad Eye Moody would say:  “Constant vigilance” keeps you on guard at all times.
