Bahamas: Outrage

The Bahamian woman “who was seized from the house she was living in by uniformed policemen who would not allow her to put on any clothes and who was detained in the public area of a Nassau police station for many hours in that state before being allowed to cover herself” has been found guilty on charges of obscene language, disorderly behavior and resisting arrest: Womanish Words calls it a “human rights outrage”.
