#1 Candidate Files Criminal Complaint Over Firm Handshake10-31-2010, 12:25 AMA firm handshake is usually seen as a good thing in business and even in politics.
Not so much in South Florida. A candidate for the Broward County School Board wants the cops to lock up her opponent after what she claims was akin to battery after a recent debate.
Jaemi Levine filed a complaint with the Broward Sheriff's Office claiming David Thomas squeezed her hand so hard during a post-debate handshake Tuesday that it now hurts.
Instead of getting a grip on education issues, Thomas decided to get a grip on his opponent for the Disctrict 4 seat.
Levine alleges Thomas was upset that she outclassed him during the debate in Tamarac, which led to the Kung Fu-grip handshake and a few mumbled harsh words to get his point across.
75% of the people who read that article are laughing at her.In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.
In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

I don't know. I'm a greeter at church, and I've had a few handshakes that were almost bone-crushing. They left indentations from rings on my hand.
Not that I filed charges or anything, but there is such a thing as an overly enthusiastic handshake, too.
