42. As I see the video.. this poor woman was stuck in a holding cell...
She was stuck in a holding cell for a long time.. forced to hold a child in her arms.. with no place to sit and no air conditioning.

She waved her arms.. and no one came to her rescue. Cruel ande unusual punishment.

What is the legal definition of arrest?

A seizure or forcible restraint; an exercise of the power to deprive a person of his or her liberty; the taking or keeping of a person in custody by legal authority, especially, in response to a criminal charge.

The purpose of an arrest is to bring the arrestee before a court or otherwise secure the administration of the law.

What was this women's crime? She had a baby bottle clip that set off the alarm?

Did they offer her legal counsel or help her when she was shoved into the glass holding cell with no probable cause? And no one here on DU thinks ths kind of treatment is over the top?
