The article didn't say that they found drugs on her. The border agent stomped her when she tried to take pictures of an arrest of a male suspect.
"She and two other women were crossing the Rainbow Bridge over Niagara Falls on the US-Canada border late last Wednesday when Customs and Border Protection officers confiscated marijuana from a male pedestrian.
The three were trying to take pictures when the officers inside a house nearby called and then rushed out of the building."
I hope the judge limits the award to actual damages rather than some 'send a message' type amount.
That's a new law enforcement principle: get the guy with the camera first! < /sarcasm >
