Insult result

I’m writing regarding the letter “An Altercation Escalated” (April ’07, pg. 66).

Whether Ms. Weiss was interrogated for two hours or six hours is neither here nor there. It’s the behavior of the Schiphol Airport police over a “she said, he said” verbal altercation that is absolutely reprehensible.

Taking Ms. Weiss off her flight because an airport employee felt “insulted”? Give me a break! Is this any way for the “authorities” to treat a 69-year-old woman traveling alone? They should be ashamed of themselves, and that employee should be fired!
