Relating to that rule about 24 hours in jail...
That only applies to countries that have in their constitution. Guantannamo Bay, acoording to the Geneva Convention, does not exist.

Of course she planned this. But Karma will come back on her. SHe will be in a car accident or something that will cost her what she scammed the city out of (times 3).

Oh, and the only way the writ of habeus corpus can be removed/extended is in times of war. Lucky we`re in Iraq, but I don`t believe that qualifies considering they weren`t holding her for war crimes.

The police actually have the legal right to hold a suspect for up to 72 hours for holding or interrogation before charging them or releasing them. The only reason she got paid off by the state is because of the 3 weeks she was imprisoned. If it had gone to court she could have gotten a at least 4 times as much.

lol she`s still a dumb@ss

Well, I believe the city just paying off the girl was a DEADLY mistake, because even if it cost more to go to court, now that she gets her money guess what other people will do? The exact same thing. Now everyone will expect money. This is why I think my country, America, sucks balls.

And pielle, someone may not have to know the "legend of smugglers", but they should have enough common sense to know that flour stocked in condoms may not look completely innocent. Plus, why couldn`t she just fill the condoms with flour when she got off the plane? unless it was some special flour.

that is fcked up. She knew what was going to happen when she took it on the plane and then she gets tax-payers money because the city didn`t want to fight the case.

How the hell is it that dumb people like her can get into a good college, but I can`t? Of course they`re going to think it`s coke or something, and I`m even more dissapointed in the judge that awarded her the money.

Hmm a few things are wrong with this :

- Holding her for 3 weeks is WAY too long. Testing for cocaine is done in a matter of minutes + S&H. There was some kind of neglectance on the police side.

- Cacaine in condoms in a bag dosnt make any sense, police should no better. Its either cocaine in a condom in a bodily cavity or cocaine in a normal powder holding container (like cocaine in a flour bag).

- You are required to know the law. But you are not required to know all the legend and lore of drug smugling. Not knowing that flour in a condom would look like drugs would unfurtunatly be a completely legit defense.

What a weirdo, they should give her 180,000 in mental help instead if this is even for real. I am going to the airport and pull out a fake gun and when they arrest me for it being real i will sue..god bless the USA

"And I`m pretty Sure it doesn`t take 24 hours to check for cocain in an Airport of all places."

No, but they were still required to run tests on the substance to establish what it was. Anthrax, anyone?

College students, ironically, are about the stupidest people I know. More so because they have excellent reason *not* to be.

What a waste of court time. I don`t live in the states, I live in Canada. Our court systems are already plugged up as it is, and if our government has to pay out cash to idiots like this to keep them out of court, guess who foots the bill? ME, and every other taxpaying citizen! Its things like this that pushes me further and further into becoming a hermit in the woods.

A person can be detainned for 24 hours tops, After which they either have to be charge or released. And I`m pretty Sure it doesn`t take 24 hours to check for cocain in an Airport of all places. (Dogs, That Swiffer on a stick they rub over your Lugage whe For Explosives and others etc etc)

^^ Not true. A person can only be detained for a certain about of time before they either have to be charged or they are let go.

Just because Guantanamo Bay is doing it doesn`t mean it suppose to happen.

Isn`t there some law saying if you aren`t proven guilty they can only hold you in a cell for a set amount of time? Maybe I`m just nuts. CRAAAAZY.

Yeah she set it up.

Any idiot would know they`d arrest someone trying to take condoms full of what looks like cocaine through airport security. She shouldn`t win the case, she should learn either some common sense or some morals..

It never went to court, don`t you read? It said it was scheduled for this upcoming Thursday BUT the city payed her off. Most cities will pay you off when they don`t have time/people to go to court or they feel it would cost them more money than what they could pay you off with.

Hrm, now I want to bring flour filled condoms to get payed off by MY city, not that we have that much money anyways

Wait! She`s a college student and didn`t realize that it was a bad idea to "fake" smuggle drugs? What college is she a student of? I.M.A.Tard University?

If it `was` a prank by friends, I wish my friends had done it to me!

If it `wasn`t` a prank by friends, she`s a smart cookie! Pun intended.
