Ignorance of the law is no excuse.

She could use the same excuse for cannibalism.

A couple of years ago they caught some Haitian woman smuggling in a human skull. We have Ted Kennedy to thank for these Diversity Visas. We never did have enough monkey-eating African Cannibals in our melting-pot/salad-bowl.

And what sect would that be, exactly?

If one subscribes to evolution, monkey is nearly human, genetically; rendering monkey meals cannibalism!

I’ve known many Liberians for years and I’ve never heard of anything like this. Of course, this woman could be from one of the tribes less represented here than the Krahn or Mandingo.

That’s also how we ended up with HIV.
