I was reading an article about the Muslim teen who was arrested for building a clock, and ended up on this even more horrifying story:
The basic idea is: Brock had her hands off the wheel at a stop light and was arrested for it, and then released with no charges. Her car had been towed and she was told where to pick it up. She went to the lot, and they didn’t believe that she owned a BMW, so they put her in a psych ward for 8 days and pumped her full of sedatives because she was being “manic”. Then they stuck her with a $13k hospital bill. WHAT THE FUCK.
Obviously she’s suing the city, but how do you undo the psychological trauma of that?
