Kidnapping of teenager was a hoax

Residents of this small town where ''nothing really major happens'' know a popular 16-year-old girl fabricated a dramatic story about being kidnapped, but they still have only a few hints about why she did it. Full Story

Somebody needs to beat this childs butt until it bleeds. What if someone traveled to Kansas because of this story and really kidnapped this kid? Nobody would look for her because she pulled this stunt. She needs to spend some time in jail for this.

I live in the same town that this UNangel of a child lives,(almost embarassing to admit I live in the same town, but its true I do).
I am very appalled at the actions of this child. She is by far a "perfect angel" as her parents/step-parents claim as well as the school prinicipal.
I am more appalled "after" I read today's newspaper (04/16/06) She claims "NOT TO REMEMBER the phone call that she made to 9ll"??!! What the blazes is she "trying" to do?? Get off with an INSANE plea??
She NEEDS TO BE HORSE WHIPPED, COUNSELED, PROSECUTED & JAILED by not just the local authorities but also by the FBI & the KBI, not just for what she has done, but also for the manpower that was used in looking for her.
If she is allowed to get by with it this time, then she will do it again & again & again cause she knows that "nothing" will happen to her.
What if it was another child, one that didn't have the money, looks, would they be able to get by with doing the exact same thing?? Oh no, they would be prosecuted by the FBI, KBI as well as the local authorities.
This child, Kelsey Stetling, should be made an example so that others will not want to "try" what she has done!!
If this sounds like I am angry, darn tootin I am. Everybody that was driving a "white van" was being stopped, some got stopped at least 10 times just to see if this "UNangel" was in there & all the time she was "supposedly in the woods" all day. Shoot, the "woods" that they are refering too, is nothing more than a clump of trees (to which you can see thru) by the ball field & the skate park, 2-3 blocks from Kelsey Stetling's home!! NOW THATS GUSTY!!
How she stayed hid I would like to know cause there were authorities & their trained dogs everywhere as well as many, many other volunteers looking for "her".
Well, now that I have stated my opionion, I am going to stop talking about her at the present time & get on with my personal business!! lol

these people are saying that she should go to jail for what she did, but how is that going to help? if she did this, she obviosly has some problem that's not going to be solved by putting her in jail.
