RE: Women’s rights lobbyist ‘pays nanny $3 a hour’
This is not white knighting. This is a diplomatic relations issue. The salary of the maid was also a decision of the indian foreign relations department, not the diplomat. At first my reaction was the same as everyone else one this thread, but that was before I really knew what I was talking about.

America has a history of egregious disrespect toward Indian officials. A pioneering nuclear physicist, and former Indian President Dr. APJ Abdul kalam was held at an American airport, Imagine us holding Clinton in India. This is a trend, and the weak Indian government has taken it lying down. Hopefully the strong conservatives that are supposed to win next year show some balls.

Please educate me on when the Indian president bitched about not being able to bone white sluts and how that has anything to do with diplomatic relations even of true.

Seems to be a bit high-handed to arrest her without warning if she was a diplomat with immunity under the Vienna convention.

I remember that the US claimed diplomatic immunity for the CIA contractor who shot dead two guys in Pakistan (maybe with good reason, but still).

Probably would have been better to have a discreet talk with the Indian chief of mission.

What was funnier were the Russian diplomats who were charged claiming Medicaid and WIC food benefits.

It's an outrage! Strip search, CAVITY search, and locked up with sex workers and drug dealers etc. Over a wage dispute? Of a diplomat?

Yeah, her offense aside, her treatment really showed some low class behavior. Come on, she is a legit diplomat. Make her pay a fine, send her back to India. The end.

She's only a Deputy Consul General. She only has consular immunity which only protects her from the consequences of executing her duties as a Consul.  In this case, falsifying documents and mistreating domestic staff wouldn't be protected by her (limited) consular immunity. She was rightfully jailed. Also, it hasn't been confirmed that she was actually cavity searched.

Also, the complete overreaction by India is pathetic. They pulled security blockades from US embassy and consuls before even knowing the facts and are now threatening to arrest embassy staffers who are gay.

World's largest democracy? More like third world shithole. I wonder how many women in India have been gangraped since this ordeal started? Seriously fucked up priorities.

If you want to pay your staff like they're indentured servants, just don't lie about it and expect no consequences.

Some serious white knighting going on in this thread.

Apparently the maid was trying really hard to get out of the employment contract and wants to stay in the US (which she legally can't). Her and her husband in India tried to extort the diplomat lady for money and a new passport. She got the taste of America and now suddenly India isn't as great as every Indian living there claims.
Then again this is the dailymail; interesting read nonetheless
