9/11 flight: Housewife handcuffed, strip-searched - US news - Security - msnbc.com

Quote:
Shoshana Hebshi will never forget where she was on the 10th anniversary of Sept. 11.

She and two other airline passengers were handcuffed and strip-searched after flying into Detroit on Sunday.

No charges were filed against Hebshi, a self-described "half-Arab, half-Jewish housewife living in suburban Ohio," or the two men sitting next to her, who were flying in from Denver when the crew of Frontier Airlines Flight 623 alerted authorities that they were reportedly behaving suspiciously.
Quote:
In a blog post titled "Some real Shock and Awe: Racially profiled and cuffed in Detroit," Hebshi, an American citizen, told her tale of temporary detainment, which she had begun to share with Twitter followers in real-time — until handcuffs were placed on her wrists.

Hebshi, a writer and editor and mother of twin sons, didn't know the other two passengers in Row 12. They were Indian men, she wrote. And they didn't know each other. But they got a lot closer when they were all crammed into the back of a squad car.

What happened, according to Frontier spokesman Peter Kowalchuk, begins with a bathroom.

"One of the males, who was not feeling well, got up to use the restroom during the flight. The other male got up at approximately the same time to use the restroom. The female remained seated in her row," the FBI said in a statement.

Crews reported the men sitting next to Hebshi were spending "an extraordinarily long time" in the plane's lavatory, Kowalchuk said.

Amid heightened security fears on the tenth anniversary of the 2001 attacks, no one was taking chances.

Authorities were notified, Kowalchuk told msnbc.com, and F-16 fighter jets were scrambled to escort the plane as it landed in Detroit. The plane landed on a remote tarmac and waited for backup.
Quote:
"The Indian man who had sat next to me on the plane was already in the backseat. I turned to him, shocked, and asked him if he knew what was going on," Hebshi wrote. "I asked him if he knew the other man that had been in our row, and he said he had just met him. I said, it’s because of what we look like. They’re doing this because of what we look like. And I couldn’t believe that I was being arrested and taken away."
Quote:
Hours later, after being strip-searched and interrogated by the FBI and Homeland Security, Hebshi was allowed to leave.
Quote:
"I feel violated, humiliated and sure that I was taken from the plane simply because of my appearance," she wrote. "I believe in national security, but I also believe in peace and justice. I believe in tolerance, acceptance and trying — as hard as it may be — not to judge a person by the color of their skin or the way they dress."

Fiba Asia game result: Qatar vs Uzbekistan 12-27

Quote:
Referees were forced to halt an opening Asian Championship match between Qatar and Uzbekistan in Wuhan, China, on Thursday, when four of the five Qatar players purposely fouled out in protest against a FIBA ruling.

Four players each committed five personal fouls within the first six minutes of the match, prompting referees to disqualify Qatar and hand Uzbekistan a 27-12 win.

According to match rules, referees must halt play if one team cannot field at least two players.

Qatar coach Ali Fakhroo said the fouls were committed in protest against an International Basketball Federation (FIBA) ruling making five of the team's 11 players ineligible for the championships due to their dual nationality, Xinhua news agency said.

Fakhroo said his team would protest in the same way during their match against Iran on Friday.

German forest boy's first words: 'I'm all alone in the world, please help me'

An english-speaking boy who claims he lived rough for five years in a German forest walked in off the street and told staff at Berlin's City Hall: "I'm all alone in the world, I don't know who I am. Please help me."

'Forest boy' wants to go back to the wild as he struggles to adjust to normal life

Quote:
Germany's mystery English-speaking ‘forest boy’ is said to be having trouble adjusting to conventional life.

Sources close to the case claim he is having difficulty sleeping in a proper bed and wants to return to the wild.

Other creature comforts, such as soap, hot showers, and running water, are also ‘unsettling’ the youngster.

Known only as Ray, and believed to be around 17, the boy is thought to have spent at least five years sleeping rough in woods south of the German capital.

Charlie Sheen may be soon end his legal battle with Warner Bros. and Chuck Lorre.

The Los Angeles Times reports that the actor, who was fired from Two and a Half Men in March, will receive about $25 million to settle his dispute with his bosses, according to an anonymous source. Sheen filed suit seeking $100 million in March. The case has been in private arbitration.
Quote:
TMZ is also reporting the $25 million figure, but adds that because Sheen has taped about 180 episodes for the show, he stands to make about $100 million over the next 7 - 10 years in syndication profits.

Reading some of the comments on the Troy Davis article makes me very sad that so much ignorance still exists.
