Is THIS how our Army meets its recruiting quota?

Here's the latest possible recruiting violation to hit the media:

A 17-year-old was recruited from a youth prison. His parents claim that their 'signatures' on the consent form were forged.

Of course, at least his mother is also articulate and persistent and convinced the media to listen to her.

Further reading: from Harper's.

In lieu of actually enlisting in the military Maybe the College Republicans can volunteer thier services as press gangs.

They can just go to Malls and video arcades and just grab random teenagers and haul them to the recruiters office.

Yeah?! Well on Little Green Fascists, we have proof that the new age limits are working so just put a hold on those press gangs, mister!!

Plus, the press gangs idea would require the College Republicans to be at least sober enough to walk and distinguish between individuals -- it just ain't gonna happen, dude!
