How to Become a Bounty Hunter



Ohio Woman Sues FBI, Claiming She Was Mishandled Because of Her Ethnicity

DETROIT — A 36-year-old Ohio woman is suing the FBI and other federal agencies, saying she was removed from a flight in Detroit on the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks, manhandled, strip-searched and thrown into a dirty cell for more than four hours, the Detroit Free Press reports.

Shoshana Hebshi, who the Free Press describe as half-Jewish and half-Arab, says she and two Indian-American men were yanked from a Frontier Airlines flight after it landed in Detroit.

Federal agents handcuffed the trio, escorted them off the plan and pushed them into vehicles.

The ACLU filed the suit Tuesday in Detroit.

“I was frightened and humiliated,” said Hebshi, a freelance journalist and mother of 7-year-old twins. “As an American citizen and a mom, I’m really concerned about my children growing up in a country where your skin color and your name can put your freedom and liberty at risk at any time.”

Love the “FBI” spin on this story.
Mishandled is quite the neutered adjective.
I wonder if the woman in the story was your daughter and was stripped naked in a cell then subjected to an anal search you would use the word mishandled,eh?
