How is Amanda Berry's daughter being considered a kidnap victim if she is his daughter and held in the home where she was born with both parents present. I know they were all held against their will, but I didn't realize they could give him a charge for kidnapping on her. I guess I could look up the statute that defines kidnapping.

It doesn't matter where you are held, only that you are held against your will.  Why should it matter where?

I don't see how the baby couldn't be considered a kidnapping victim. The mom was held against her will and obviously raped. She wasn't free to leave with the baby. The more charges thrown at these bastards, the better.

A 6 year old by their parent? He legally has equal custody.

if one parent has custody and the other parent removes the child against their will and the will of the custodial parent, it's kidnapping.  he was holding both against their wishes.  even if the child said they were there willingly, someone's going to cry Stockholm Syndrome.  and rightfully so.

When you prevent someone from leaving a home or anywhere it is felony kidnapping. My ex's first wifes husband (got that straight?  lol) once argued with me in my front yard and it escalated to where he snatched my keys from my hand and prevented me from getting in my car and leaving.  I called the police and they came and told him he had just committed felony kidnapping and it was up to me whether or not they arrested him.  I didnt press charges tho, i just asked him to be removed.

Even rapists can get custody.

I guess by circumstance. Her mother was being held against her will.
