Gatinha is in Arizona for who knows why, maybe looking for a place for you two to die when you get old,
and her purse gets stolen by a natural born citizen. She goes to the police to report her stolen purse, and
because she is a typical Brazilian "brown" skinned woman with an accent and no ID, they detain her until
her status can be determined. As per county policy, she's strip searched before going into the lockup.
You're able to get her out within a few hours, but she found the whole experience degrading.
Is this cool because it might help catch an illegal, or BS because it's your wife? Or both?
Oh for Pete's sake.
