The story of the Haitian woman who was arrested in Florida for "smuggling a human head" into the country was one bizarre blurb. But the details and reason for the arrest are what I find rather, well, arresting:
Myrlene Severe, 30, a Haitian-born permanent U.S. resident, was charged Friday with smuggling a human head into the U.S. without proper documentation.
What are we to think of this charge? The act itself is grisly enough. Not so grisly, though, that the US bureaucracy does not have documentation for transporting human heads into the United States. I wonder what bureaucrat foresaw that need?
