    You go girl ! Woman locks cops up in basement - wins some cash too !

    Scared and not knowing what to do, when police went to search the basement, Venus locked them downstairs.

    As a result, in 2012, Venus was awarded a $95,000 settlement from Baltimore City.

    Yes, but have you ever experienced the financial and emotional rollercoaster ride one gets just getting the lawsuit in front of a judge and jury, let alone getting to the slam-dunk verdict?

    Government entities can often wear down a plaintiff financially paying for all sorts of intermediary filings. The government entity has no such worry as it is using the taxpayers' money - even when after it loses it reimburses costs and fees.

    I thought, if it were a "slam-dunk" case deserving of a "slam-dunk" verdict, then a savvy shark would not need one red cent until he gets his 40% or more.

    I get your point. I think her seasoned citizen status has more to do with this than the slam-dunkedness of the case.

    I'd sure love to read more about just HOW she managed to lock them in the basement when she was handcuffed and had a dislocated shoulder. That would be one tough cookie.
    I will not knowingly initiate force. I am a self owner.

    Let the record show that I did not consent to be governed. I did not consent to any constitution. I did not consent to any president. I did not consent to any law except the natural law of "mala en se." I did not consent to the police. Nor any tax. Nor any prohibition of anything. Nor any regulation or licensing of any kind.

    I agree. She definitely has what some people in my area call "huevos*". Glad she got some compensation for her assault, just wish it had come out of the assaulting cops' pockets.
