Talk about an unbelievable story:
A woman who was kidnapped as an 11-year-old in 1991 was reunited with her family on Thursday after the police here arrested two suspects in the case and discovered a hidden compound where she had apparently been kept for nearly two decades.
This is such an unbelievable development that I was planning on blogging about it even though I suspected it had any religious angle. But then I read down in the New York Times story and, sadly, I found this:
The break in the case came Tuesday afternoon when a University of California, Berkeley, police officer noticed Mr. Garrido trying to hand out religious literature on campus and asked him for identification. A check of police databases revealed that Mr. Garrido, 58, was on parole.
Passing out religious literature on campus ... Whaaaaat?!
