A ha... well, she wasn't technically a teenager but almost, and still very, very immature.


"I find it very disturbing that after causing all this fear, excitement and concern, the defendant never showed any degree of regret or remorse for her actions, not even after her arrest," Kubo said.

What a stupid, stupid girl. I hope she's spending a lot of time away from her boyfriend from now on - in jail.

Cheers,

That'd be tough if she was in jail. I say community work during the day and jail at night.

I bet she had no idea how much trouble she could get into when she wrote those notes. The article said that each note carries a max sentence of 10 yrs in prison. Safe to say she wouldn't be doing anything as fun as a cruise for a long time.

Mike M.
As to the free cruises, isn't there something in the rules about "cruise lines not being responsible for acts of God, terrorism,war, sabotage, etc... if so, wouldn't this relieve the line from any obligation? Just a question..what do you think??

The cruiseline is not responsible but they will probably do something to lessen the impact and help with their PR. As to the woman that did it, don't look for any leniency for her, she is an adult and in todays world terrorist threats are taken very poorly. It isn't like the local high school kid calling in a bomb scare ten years ago to miss a test and getting slapped on the wrist and probation, she will very likely do time and should.

I read this article today - holy cow, what a stupid, stupid girl!

You know- a bunch of us got flamed in another thread for suspecting it to be a teen-age prank.... we weren't far off the mark were we? sheeeesh

I feel sorry for everyone on that ship who suffered the consequeces of her childish acting out....

She ruined her life - not to mention what her family must be going through.
