US air marshals who arrested Brazillian judge's wife flee Brazil after they themselves are arrestedTwo U.S. air marshals who arrested the wife of a Brazilian judge on a flight to Rio de Janeiro -- and were themselves arrested and had their passports confiscated by Brazilian authorities -- fled the country using alternate travel documents rather than face what they believed to be trumped-up charges, sources said.The incident occurred on October 1 on Continental Flight 128 from Houston, Texas, to Rio de Janeiro. During the flight, a female passenger who appeared to be intoxicated tried to serve herself drinks by going to the plane's galley, one source said. The plane's crew asked air marshals to intervene, and two marshals approached the woman, who began struggling with them.Two sources said the woman bit one of the air marshals, and she was handcuffed and placed under arrest.At the Rio airport, the air marshals went to turn over the woman to local authorities but were themselves brought before a federal judge and charged with misdemeanor counts of assault, sources said. Brazilian authorities took the air marshals' passports, so they could not leave the country and set a court hearing for the following week, sources said.
"They (Brazilian officials) did not want them to leave. They were not free to go," one U.S. law enforcement source said.
But the air marshals used alternate travel documents and quietly departed the country on a commercial flight that same day without the knowledge of the Brazilian court officials who had sought their detention.

I'm sure the Obama Administration will waste no time turning the air marshals over to Brazil because
" clearly the air marshals acted stupidly." Maybe Obama can fly over there on Air Force One and personally kiss the butt of the Brazillian president and the judge.SI VIS PACEM PARA BELLUM-Ex-Sheriff Martin Howe to Will Kane in "High Noon"
"It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.

I have to agree with the above. I think this administration would happily throw them under the bus. I've talked to several air marshal's this year. Not one of them felt they were safe under this administration.'Political Correctness is a doctrine fostered by a

The problem here is South American corruption, I doubt a weak response from the US government would help much.
Can Air Marshall withdraw labour or otherwise make the running of the airline industry difficult the government would listen to the airline industry the same as they listen to other big multi national companies, they get politician dancing a merry dance when they offer cash for election campaigns or pet projects."all that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing" Edmund Burke.

I'd guess the Airline can ban her from all future flights, though.To be born an Englishman, is to be a winner in the Lottery of Life.
