Police said the teenager apparently had hidden inside a large trash container after running away from the Milwaukee Leadership Training Center, a teen center modeled after a military boot camp.


There's so much FAIL there, I don't know where to start.

Came to compliment Subby on excellent use of movie reference humor.

Found a additional excellent uses:
