    Inside the Brutal World of America's Kidnapping Capitol

    Inside the Brutal World of America's Kidnapping Capital - Page 1 - News - New York - Village Voice

    Maria was drifting off to sleep on the bedroom floor. She could hear women getting raped in the next room. Only, she didn't hear screams—she heard the laughter of male guards.

    The women had been drugged by their rapists, who had done the same to Maria as soon as she walked into the house. They forced her to swallow a red liquid and handed her some white, chalky pills. She drank the liquid and tucked the pills on the side of her mouth, but they were slowly dissolving.

    ...Maria had arrived at the modest three-bedroom house in west Phoenix several days earlier in the back of a white van. She was one of about a dozen other immigrants who had hired coyotes to smuggle them into the United States: They each paid the human smugglers about $1,800 to guide them safely through the treacherous Arizona desert.

    Their guides instead delivered them to other, more vicious coyotes. The kidnappers demanded another $1,700 apiece for Maria and the 12 others, including two young boys.
    I understand that this article has its own slant, but the situation in Arizona is appalling.

    But those Arizonans are just racist. They're only doing this to keep Mexicans out.

    The "racist" bill was meant to deal with a very real crime wave.

    As you know, I have zero problems with the Arizona law, though I think that Joe Arpaio is a moron.

    I'm tired of the guy. He's such a publicity hog.

    Would it be wrong for me to suggest that he be kidnapped and exported to El Salvador?

    This is why making it so difficult for poor people to immigrate is a bad idea.

    You're so right, Asparagus. We should throw our borders open to any and all who want to come, and make sure we pay for their hospital stays and educate their children, as well.

    That will totally solve this problem.

    Of course, it will create a hundred million NEW problems, but what the hey?

    You may not have the balls to detonate the bomb, but inside your heart, you're applauding it.

    Using your reasoning, the blacks who built churches in the South were just provoking the KKK to burn them down.

    Right?

    Yes, but I was joking. I get the sense that you actually WANT someone to firebomb that mosque. That's why you keep repeating the phrase.

    I was pointing out the possibility, and knowing a bit about how some Americans feel about Muslims, and knowing a bit about human nature, and a bit about figuring odds..... it wouldn't surprise me a bit.

    But of course I'm a conservative, and in your mind that makes me evil.... right? So I had to be hoping for it, right?…. In a gleeful manner, right?

    Karnack Part Deux fits you. (or are you too young to remember Johnny Carson?)
