Well, I guess they weren’t really abducting them or so they claim. Ten certifiable American morons were arrested while trying to bus children out of Haiti without any of the necessary legal forms and permissions.
The latest “Ugly American” poster children are members of the Southern Baptist Convention from Idaho and, according to their spokesman, were “just trying to do the right thing.”
Needless to say the Haitian government is furious and insisting that the Ugly Ten be prosecuted in order to send a strong message against trafficking in children.
Haitian and U.S. official are considering a trial in the U.S. since Haiti has a few more important things to worry about than these idiots. If that’s the case, I’ll be surprised if they get more than a slap on the wrist. What they should be sentenced to do is clean out the latrines in the disaster area for about six months.
I have no sympathy for these people but they probably don’t deserve jail time for stupidity. I would like to see a hefty community service sentence that will help them to develop a little cultural sensitivity.
What am I kidding? Fundy airheads develop cultural sensitivity? I might as well ask for hell to freeze over.
