Two years ago, NYPD arrested Dominique Strauss Kahn, a frenchman serving as chief of IMF, and a potential candidate for president of France. The charges were later dropped, but that was the end of Strauss Kahn. He resigned his IMF post and never ran for president of France. In fact nobody has heard anything from him since. Scratch one Frog.
Yesterday they arrested a female Indian diplomat, and strip searched her. Charges are obscure, by have something to do with her relationship, or wages or visa for a servant. So much for diplomatic immunity. All of India is hopping mad, threatening to storm the American embassy, break diplomatic relations, join the Russians, anything. Scratch one promising international relationship.
NYPD is becoming a real international mover and shaker.
And every foreign tourist must be thinking about NOT visiting NYC.
