Palestinian Myspace Predators

No joke.
DETROIT - A 16-year-old honor student from Michigan tricked her parents into getting her a passport and then flew off to the Mideast to be with a West Bank man she met on MySpace.com, authorities say.

U.S. officials in Jordan persuaded her to turn around and go home before she reached the West Bank. She returned home Friday.

Katherine R. Lester is a straight-A student and student council member, her father said. “She’s a good girl. Never had a problem with her,” Terry Lester said.

[...]

The age of consent in Michigan is 16; Katherine turns 17 on June 21.


Full story.
I repeat, no joke. I don't know which part of the article is more unbelievable... that a Palestinian is preying on US high school kids through Myspace; that this girl "tricked her parents into getting her a passport" and then without them noticing, bought a ticket to Israel and actually went; that the age of consent in Michigan is 16; that the article actually implies that it would have been fine if they had sex anyway because the legal age of consent in Michigan is 16.

And possibly the strangest part of all is that I found the link to this article on www.wtf.com. No joke.

It's a pointless article.

“I’ll be honest with you, we don’t know if a crime’s been committed,” said James Jashinske, the Undersherrif.

Why is this a story???

She bought something - instead of bubblegum she bought a plane ticket. Either she is really wealthy and paid for it herself or she used a parent's credit card without their permission.

Why are her parents trying to blame "the government"?

I think it's a story because it's so bizarre. And everything is the government's fault, isn't it? Jay kay jay kay.

btw, I saw the new Leviathan today. I LOVE the back cover, whoever did that.
