A Minnesota teen who was kidnapped for almost a month swam across a lake Tuesday to escape her abductors, officials said.

The teenager, from Alexandria, Minn., made it safely across the lake before running onto a property where she received help, CBS Minnesota reported.

Authorities said the young girl was kidnapped on Aug. 8 by Thomas Barker, 32, who urged the teen to get into his car and drove her to a residence in Carlos. Barker, his roommate and another friend physically and sexually assaulted the teenager, officials said.

WOW. And then we have these snowflakes going to $70,000 per year colleges, who are complaining that there might be some conservative speaker on schedule for several months out.

I can see why those animals needed to kidnap a girl.

I think their parents were a little too closely related.

This comment in the article was just insulting.

“The 15-year-old was transported to the hospital for minor injuries she sustained.”

Minor injuries? WTF? The physical and mental abuse involved here was extensive.

Leave that comment out. Good grief.

Punishment: A penal colony in Siberia where they could have unlimited access to sex with farm animals and each other. During the day they can build structures for the Russian military in preparation for their war with China.

The one on the left couldn’t spell “cat” if you spotted him the “c” and the “a.” And there is no point in doing a DNA analysis in this case; they’re the result of generations of “natural cloning.”

Why would you allow these animals to abuse innocent animals?

Now if you could find animals willing to abuse them, that would be okay.

This girl swam across a friggin' LAKE? Didn't get hypothermia or fatigue?

Even the smallest of lakes is usually about a good 1/2 mile across and still a good 20 feet deep.

“Didn’t get hypothermia or fatigue? “

Adrenalin and fear are remarkable insulators.:-)
