Default Woman photographs airport tourist attraction, arrested, files $70M suit

This case is a frightening example of what can happen when a photographer encounters ignorant bullies with badges. According to the complaint filed in Federal Court, Nancy Genovese, a mother of three, was driving home on County Road 31 past Gabreski Airport in Suffolk County. Gabreski Airport displays a decorative helicopter shell by the roadway to the public, which is visible to all who pass by.

Nancy Genovese stopped her car on the side of the road across the street from the airport in an area that is open and accessible to the public, and crossed over the road to the airport entryway that is also open and accessible to the public to take a picture of the helicopter display. While still in her car, she took a picture of the decorative helicopter shell with the intention of posting it on her personal “Support Our Troops” web page.

As Nancy Genovese was preparing to drive away, she was stopped and approached by Robert Iberger, a lieutenant with the Southampton Town Police. Lieutenant Iberger demanded to know why she was taking photographs. Nancy showed the lieutenant her camera, but Lieutenant Iberger grabbed her camera and handled it “without care”. In an attempt to prevent the lieutenant from damaging the camera, Nancy removed her memory card, which Lieutenant Iberger confiscated. To date, Nancy’s memory card still has not been returned to her.
It gets worse, because she was driving home from a shooting range and was (legally) carrying a gun in the trunk...

Awesome. Too bad law enforcement will be acquitted under the guise of "operating in good intent", again.

I'll just sit here and wait for the liberal bottoms to come and cry about the gun in her turnk and how their mothers never loved them.

The case has barely even started. It will most likely take years to settle this I am sure.

The town taxpayers will be on the hook and the cops will probably get re-assigned elsewhere.

good for winning, but it would be cool to stick it to the parties involved.

public humiliation is powerful.

I would have lost my ----.

There are a string of these ridiculous stories.

The man handcuffed, naked in a chair and pepper sprayed to death in the police station
The young man who has tasered multiple times after he fell off a bridge and broke his back because he was threatening to the police.

What the fuking ***

Your english is excellent.

I vote that you join your GF in graduate school.

You however, should go to law school. IIRC you will both graduate at the same time. Yes you will have $100K debt but ball hard and get good grades and you can go work for biglaw FTW.
