Judge did not believe government cared about protests

in Dankam v. Gonzales, 2007 U.S. App. Lexis 16852 [4th Circuit 2007] Ms. Dankam, from Cameroon, testified she protested in front of her Embassy in Washington Dc, and that she was "sure" her government knew she protested and that her government would get angry and later try to punish her.

However, the Judge said:
"there is no evidence of what your government knows or thinks."
"no one wrotet a letter, agreeing with you"
" there are no photographs of a man inside the Embassy watching you'
"no one bothered or injured your husband and children back in the old country"
"you are not famous; you are not a big shot; you did not speak on the radio; you did not write letters; no one knows who you are"
You lose!
