Don't you wish you were related to someone rich and famous?

I saw the tape of this on TVB. To paraphrase Bugs Bunny, she made the HK Police look like total maroons. I think back a couple of years ago when actor Mel Gibson was stopped for drunk driving in the US. He launched into a profanity laced tirade at the police and they quickly controlled him by grabbing his hair and banging his face into the top of his car. He had bruises on his face. A contrite Gibson later apologized to the police and his fans.

Contrast the treatment Mel got with Amina's performance last night in Hong Kong. A drunken woman who is maybe 1.6 meters tall and weighs 65 kilos pushes the cops around, refuses to cooperate, pitches a hissy fit and is only controlled when she actually assaults a police officer. Holy Cow, if you see the tape of this the way the cop who was slapped reacted was comical. You'd think he'd been shot with a 9 mm pistol. The fall down and pretend it hurts works well for a person wanting to sue it is simply not appropriate for a police officer.

Evidently this is not the first time this hoity-toit has engaged in this type of behavior because she was fined and had to pay restitution to a taxi driver in 2008 though the amount was trivial. She obviously has an anger management problem, maybe and alcohol or drug problem that needs to be dealt with as well. Or maybe, she is a grown up version of nearly psychotically spoiled brats that Hong Kong's wealthier denizens seem to produce like bakeries do egg tarts. Maybe she has simply never been told she can't, thinks manners are for servants, never had to take responsibility for anything, lives off daddies fourtune and has no respect for the well being of others. If that is true I bet her family wishes she had a drug problem!

In any event, the police should not tolerate this type of behavior from a suspect. When she refused a breathalyzer test she should have been handcuffed and placed in a police car. The tape clearly shows that she was hostile and threatening. It never should have gotten to the point where she COULD slap an officer. What if she'd pulled a knife out of her handbag and stabbed the officer? She certainly looked angry enough to do that.

She shouldn't have been given bail. She should have had to spend the night in jail.

Until Nex Time
