Oddly Enough - Reuters

I'm Not Touching It, YOU Touch It!


BOGOTA, Colombia (Reuters) - Colombian police seized 292 voodoo dolls but were reluctant to inspect the black, hand-sized talismans for fear of witchcraft.

"Witches don't exist, but if they do, they do," Highway Police Capt. Gerson Fajardo explained in a local newspaper interview published on Thursday.

Transporting or selling the dolls is not against the law in Colombia. But police intelligence officer Rolando Silva, described by El Tiempo newspaper as an expert in witchcraft, nonetheless defended their seizure in the central province of Quindio.

"It was a measure to protect the moral conduct and the good habits of the people," he said.

The cargo, marked "various merchandise," also included 192 packages labeled magic dust and instructions on how to cast spells.


********************************************

I personally think that is pretty funny, that the officers did not want to touch the dolls. Anyone believe in voodoo?

I am not really sure if I do.... I dont really want to find out though...
