This story has been floating around the web this week, but I thought it was worth highlighting. Claudia Trevisan, a Brazilian reporter, traveled to Yale in hopes of securing an interview with the president of Brazil’s Supreme Court, Joaquim Barbosa. Unfortunately for Trevisan, Barbosa was attending a private seminar on private property. Rather than wait outside for Barbosa to emerge, Trevisan (who had been told that she couldn't attend the event) entered the building where the seminar was taking place, lied to a cop about who she was, and then lost her temper with the police officer when he took her passport. The police then arrested Trevisan for criminal trespass.
