You'll notice, too, the man was an illegal alien?? Maybe that's why he was running cuz he didn't want to get caught? She did the right thing. She did what a handler and his/her K9 are trained to do. I hope a better life is ahead of her.
The only thing she did wrong was work for the PGPD and did her job CORRECTLY!!!
This happened in a bordering jurisdiction to me and I have met her. This is BS all the way around. I have a lot of friends on PGPD and the feds were headhunting at the time. I know a lot of BS that happened in that county and it is a war zone. This county has a lot of problems and it is not the officers just trying to survive their shift with no support from their community, their corrupt co govt or their higher ups. The perps have all the rights in this county and this fine OFFICER (which is what she is and always will be to me and many of my friends) was railroaded to quiet the masses and show that they would convict a cop. There was a lot of pressure from the community and the govt did not want the feds looking deeper than the cops!! A vast majority of the officers in the Prince Georges County Police are a great bunch and I am honored to call a lot of them my friends. This entire situation stunk from the word go and still stinks now. She lost her career and her time with her son because the garbage that inhabits PG Co. (not all but a lot of the residents) would not be happy until a officer was sent up the road. I still avoid that county like the plague and I only live 2 miles from the border.
Hey Warose, The suspects were surrounded and already surrendered when the this lady felon (ex-cop) asked her commander if she could "let the dog get a bite". When you have 2 prone suspects surrounded and not resisting and then you let you dog chew on him for awhile to merit out a little street justice, be prepared to lose everything and go to jail. Are your saying that her brothers and sisters in blue lied when testifying to convict her just so they could keep their own pension? Surely if she was innocent, her brothers and sisters in blue that night would have covered for her, right? Cops are in it for the brotherhood and serving the community right? I hope they're not just doing it for a 20 and out pension. The best spin you could put on it is the Feds put pressure on one of her partners there who was close to retirement and would rather take the 3-5 million dollar pension than risk it to help an "innocent" sister cop. The important thing to remember is that she thought she could do whatever she wanted and get away with it, she had 8.5 years to think about it. I wonder if she would do it all over again.
This is very sad and ridiculous, she should of never been charged with this.
This is sad horrible and not right. She was just doing her job.
What a load of BS! They never should have charged her WTF kind of person does that?!?
should have never went to prison the alledged victim here was obstructing an officer and did not obey commands. being bitten or tased is a result and does not to me nor any other cop i know meet the standard of brutality. could be different if they were trying to surrender or following commands.
Sounds to me like she got railroaded and hung out to dry for simply doing her job.
Very sad!!! prayers for the officer!
Let me tell you this story turns my stomach. I work very close with the FEDS and lets me tell you they are the biggest MOB of them all. They need to be looked at. The prosecuter has no idea what is a crime and what isnot. There was no Crime committed in the officers part just the mutt that was illegal in OUR country.. I hope she stays STRONG and in my ryrs she will always be a LEO...
this is so shady. that poor woman. she will never get the10 years back.
