Sounds like she would be better off being a nurse or a social worker. Sorry but if a 13 year old is throwing a cop up against the wall they need another line of work. This adolescent could have just as easily grabbed her gun and killed someone - even if by mistake.

You"don't like" females as police officers because of the uniform?? Wow the 1950's are over. That type of thinking is small minded and regressive It is not about the uniform but the person behind the uniform. I am proud of these fine women who are police officers.
