Patience Tagarira went to the Luton, England, police station to talk to an officer about an incident in which a bicyclist fell and became wedged beneath her car. Instead, she was left in the reception area for 30 minutes without seeing an officer. Then, the station was closed and locked with her still inside it. Another two hours passed before an officer reopened the station and let her out.
