Pretty girl. Now her life is blemmised.

Hillary Transue, who was sentenced to a wilderness camp for building a spoof MySpace page that lampooned her assistant principal, poses in White Haven, Pa., Friday, Feb. 6, 2009. Transue says she did not have an attorney, nor was she informed of her right to one, when she was sentenced by Luzerne County Judge Mark Ciavarella. He was one of two Pennsylvania judges who have been charged with taking millions of dollars in kickbacks to send teenagers to two privately run youth detention centers.(AP Photo/Matt Rourke)

One day, she published a spoof article on a social networking website, mocking the assistant principal at her high school in Wilkes-Barre. The teacher complained and, to the astonishment of her family, Transue was charged with harassment and hauled into juvenile court.

3 months detention for a mocking? Ludicrous. Now he will get more of a mocking. I wonder if he feels guilty for sending someone to jail because his little feelings got hurt.

It could be much worse. Here is a drawing of the Gulags Prison system in the USSR. Note how the women are huddled like sardines on one bunk and beneath it.
