  • Two brothers 'kidnap' boy -- mom is in on it
  • Police: Men risked being shot by cops or citizens

Two guys kidnap a child in broad-daylight. Witnesses make frantic calls to 911, only to find out it was a fake abduction and may just be part of a well-intentioned prank. Are these guys providing a public service or intentionally inciting panic?
