Best Use of Anti-Goth funds

Joe Mick, Youth Outreach Unit in Blue Springs

Judge not lest ye be judged, right? Well, screw that. In Blue Springs, the quasi-police squad known as the Youth Outreach Unit convinced the U.S. Congress to shell out $240,000 so city officials could wipe the Goth off their kids' psyches. But even that wasn't Christian enough for Y.O.U. employee Joe Mick, who pleaded guilty this year to embezzling $41,000 from the group and -- ready for this? -- donating $1,300 to his Baptist church. Quite an embarrassing development for the outreach unit, which was too busy harassing a handful of black-clad kids to identify the community's true crisis: out-of-control tithing.
