The Case of the Flour-Filled Condoms, Settled

Remember the story of Janet Lee? She had some condoms filled with flour as a fun stress reliever/phallic gag and took them on the plane with her.

In the space of a few hours on Dec. 21, 2003, Janet Lee landed in a Philadelphia jail cell, where she would remain for three weeks, held on $500,000 bail and facing 20 years in prison on drug charges.

She filed a federal civil-rights lawsuit against the police (after all, holding her for three weeks for possession of flour?)
She just settled for $180,000. As part of the settlement, she’ll be allowed to meet with the police and ask them how they managed to be so incredibly stupid.
