Today’s winners are Marianna Louisa Kittila and Brianna Lynne Tatom. They get the award for the following–
Police arrested two women on suspicion of unlawful imprisonment Friday, Feb. 6, after they allegedly kidnapped a 28-year-old woman from the Meridian Street Wal-Mart and dropped her off at a U.S. Border Patrol station, hoping she would be deported.
Marianna Louisa Kittila, 24 and Brianna Lynne Tatom, 20, forced the 28-year-old woman, whom they believed was in the U.S. illegally, into a car outside of Wal-Mart about 8:40 p.m., said Bellingham Police Sgt. Carr Lanham. How Kittila and Tatom were able to force the victim into the car is unclear, he said.
Kittila and Tatom drove the victim to a U.S. Border Patrol station on McLeod Road. One of the women used a cell phone to inform agents inside the station that they were dropping off the victim. Agents met the three woman when they arrived, Lanham said. ”
These two Nobel prize winners didn’t consider they were breaking the law by what they did. Note- this article and AP’s version makes no mention whether the woman kidnapped was really illegal or not.(May I add the general public, some Wizbang readers, bloggers, and at least one columnist have trouble differentiating between the two. If these two weren’t smart enough to know this was kidnapping, do you really think they can tell the difference between legal and illegal?) It doesn’t matter, and I name Marianna Louisa Kittila and Brianna Lynne Tatom today’s Knuckleheads of the Day.
