Interesting Sense of Honesty

When Cody Slaughter, 22, interviewed for a position with U.S. Customs and Border Protection in Yuma, Ariz., he was asked if he had any crimes in his past. Yes, he allegedly answered: eight years ago he molested a 2-year-old girl, had sex with various kinds of animals, and used illegal drugs. Once the federal agents were able to recover their ability to speak, they called in the Yuma County Sheriff’s Office, and deputies searched Slaughter’s home. They say they found evidence to back up his confession, but won’t say what it is. (RC/Arizona Republic) ...And really, most people probably wouldn’t want to know what it is.
