Woman killed during KKK initiation rite
http://rawstory.com/news/afp/Woman_killed_during_KKK_in...

A woman who tried to flee a Ku Klux Klan initiation rite was shot to death by the group's leader in a remote campsite on a sandbar in the swamps of Louisiana, officials told local media.

The woman had found the Sons of Dixie group on the Internet and taken a bus down from her home in Tulsa, Oklahoma so she could be initiated into the secretive white supremacist group and then recruit others in Oklahoma.

She arrived on Friday and underwent several rites, including having her head shaved, St. Tammany Sheriff Jack Strain said at a press conference Tuesday.

2. First the news that we were one of the few states to get redder this election
and now this. Bad two weeks for Louisiana.

3. "It's kind of impressive for a group with a pretty small IQ to be able to cleanse that site so well,
""It's kind of impressive for a group with a pretty small IQ to be able to cleanse that site so well," Strain told reporters.

The group was discovered after Foster's son and another member went to a local convenience store on Monday and asked the clerk how they could remove bloodstains from their clothes.

The clerk recognized the men and contacted the sheriff's office, who soon found them and then raided the campsite."


That is right out of the article.

Thank God, it all worked out for the best.

6. Yeah, I hate to be an ass about it, but ...
... I've had so much practice.

It's a great short story, and should be written as such, perhaps a fictionalized version. Woman searches internet, sets up appointment, and drives to another state to be killed by those she searched out.

What's the world coming to? I feel bad for the woman, misguided as she was, that's a pretty harsh way to go.
