Runaway Bride Cries Wolf and Carries Taxpayer Money With Her

It's one thing to be nervous about your wedding, but do you have to lie about being kidnapped to get some breathing room to think?

She was "scared and concerned about her impending marriage and decided she needed some time alone," Albuquerque Police Chief Ray Schultz said.

AND THEN THERE'S THIS: Police said there would be no criminal charges, although it's reported that more than 100 officers led a search that involved several hundred volunteers, including many wedding guests and members of the bridal party.

Her family is currently en route to meet her ...

Here's my thought on the matter: America, do we just let this pass by? Here's a person that not only put herself in possible jeopardy(Stranger in a strange-land) And put to work good taxpayer money for this elaborate hoax.

Do I want my money to go to service the community? Of course. That's why I pay my taxes, and with that every person, every policemen, fireman, EMS, take the risk every day and night that one of these are not hoaxes. I don't think it's fair to the communities involved, to our country as a whole, and to the families involved that because she got "cold feet" she fakes her own kidnapping...and doesn't get some kind of punishment.

Mental Challenges? A woman crying for attention? ..maybe. A Woman crying for help? Maybe so---Maybe the thought of being married just freaked her out.

When I got married was nervous too..weren't we all?

But I didn't fake a kidnapping to get away to think--this is a grown woman for crying out loud.

I truly felt she was mentally capable, knew what she was doing, and now, I truly feel that some kind of discipline should be done. What message does this send to people?

And what does it say for the use of our tax money?  I'm just sorry the police and all were duped when they could have been solving other crimes and helping those who need help. It's a shame when the abuse of our systems go unchecked.

Let's remember-We pay our law enforcement, EMS, Fire Dept. to serve the community...Let's respect for those who are getting married and your nervous, talk to your parents.

Talk to your friends, anyone your feel comfortable with...don't do what this woman did. It's not the way to go..and just to think..she didn't even win nothing in Vegas ...

However, everyone doesn't feel this way.

I was talking to a Richmond native earlier today about the issue, and she said that she felt that she shouldn't be prosecuted or charged with anything.

She said, "I don't think she should go to jail for being afraid. There's larger crimes than that which need prosecution.Maybe she needs her head checked out, but not a jail sentence."

Just goes to show that some people will tolerate anything with a slap on the wrist or a good excuse ...

I am not bitter are u interested? email me at: I accept it all, good or bad..after 10 years, you get used to it.
