    Saudi Teen Sentenced to 90 Lashes for Cell Phone in School

    Wednesday, January 20, 2010


    A teenage girl in Saudi Arabia has been sentenced to 90 lashes and two months in prison for taking a cell phone to school, the U.K.'s Daily Mail reported Wednesday.

    The 13-year-old's punishment, harsher than that given to some robbers and looters, requires her to be flogged in front of her classmates, the Daily Mail quoted Saudi newspaper Al-Watan.

    She was reportedly hiding a cell phone in class, breaking strict Saudi regulations banning their use in girls' schools.

    Saudi Arabia is the world's leading country in the use of torture-by-flogging, and religious police keep a close watch over public behavior, the Mail reported.

    In September, twenty Saudi teenagers who ransacked shops and restaurants were flogged in public.

    Pretty sure nobody else in that school will break that rule again anytime soon.

    I was talking to a Saudi on another forum the other day, and he was telling me how much Saudi has modernized.

    At least there not burning her for being a witch anymore.

    So this was taken from a Saudi newspaper, by the Daily Mail of all things, then passed on to Fox?

    How much more diluted and biased can a news story get? I know lets pass it on to the Ku Klux Klan to edit, and then give it to Sarah Palin to report it to the masses.

    That's actually kind of funny, mainly because up here the schools don't give shred of feces if you use your cell phone in class, or really anything else for that matter. (The exclusion being during finals, of course.)

    Actually, this is probably due to the fact that there's only like 4 religious people in the entire town, and the region is pretty much "Yay Technology FTW!" Small average-wealth beach-side towns are the best, indeed. (Unless your not in Canada)
