A friend got a Misdemeanor for pulling to many rcks on a trailer and NOBODY WAS INJURED THERE WAS NO WRECK!!

Guess we need to remember law enforcement is part of the crimminal justice system.

They all work with each other, she should have spent some time behind bars and been barred from driving for long while.

Ever wonder why people who have been beat up by COPS hate them?

Why on earth when a motorcyclist get killed by absolute negligence, everyone gets off with less than a hand slap? If this happened to everyone who got killed in a vehicle reck, the whole world would come to an end, but let it be a biker, and gosh darn, too bad, so sad, but heh, it was just a biker.

For heaven's sake, what does it take to get a bad cop off the job in your state? This officer had a drug conviction on record, then kills a motorcyclist through negligent driving and gets a year's probation?? And stays on the job?? And what would the penalty have been if this had been a civilian driving an SUV and killed a motorcycle officer? Wisconsin, I am not impressed.

For a very long time I choose to be angry because I called the police to my home for protection, I was beaten and smothered. They saw the blood, they saw the smothered hicky mark, they saw the ring gash in my upper lip. They choose to believe my assailant who had an open arrest for giving a police officer a false statment. I have recently decided to let my anger go, even though calling the police did not in any way protect me, it ended up costing me 2,500 dollars and they sued me for that. I never once gave them a reason to believe I was a mental patient or on drugs, but these are the things that was asked of my assailant. It is ok, I choose to let the anger go. I can only assume that the needs of 4 police officers and 3 emt drivers were met that night by choosing to go the route they did. Searching my home, opening all my drawers, my cupboards, my closests and looking under the couch cushions. The only place they did not search was my assailants room, where stolen property, illegal drugs, pipes for crack cocaine, heroin, needles, and 2 pounds of weed were located, because a sleeping baby was in there. That is ok now. I believe the needs of the 7 men in my bedroom telling me I must have hit my head on the toilet 4 times when I slipped and caused the facial injuries to myself were met when they decided to not press charges against a grown man for beating a woman 33 years older than himself. Perhaps those 7 men hated their mothers, maybe thier mothers beat them as little boys and they felt justice had been done. Well both the man and his girlfriend are in prison now the baby a ward of the state...but had those 7 trained men used better judgement.....over 100,000 dollars in stolen merchandise would have not been stolen and us law abiding citizens would not be paying for bad judement of 7 grown, trained in this department, officers of the law!! They are only human and we all make mistakes. I choose to let my anger and my judgement go, and it makes me happy that the needs of 7 grown men were met that night.

Go figure. Another cop gets a pass via the "thin blue lie" and their "brotherhood".

You can`t tell ME that the judicial system isn`t making deals behind our backs for crooked cops and crooked judges.

THIS is proof.

Had this been any of us everyday citizens, we`d be locked up a long time. Especially if we had a prior like this cop did!

You bet this isn't fair. I live here. I pay her salary. She worked for the county for "free" while we (township folks) were footing the bill for her salary. Our township "FIBs" needed that "security blanket" of having their own police officer to watch over their vacation homes. Little did they know this didn't happen. We didn't want an officer to begin with and now we REALLY don't want one. When we have had to call an officer, a county squad responded; not our township chief.
Please believe me that all cops aren't bad. Even this one let you out of a ticket on a rare occasion but she wasn't known for her kindness. Used to work with the "blue" as a dispatcher and many of the officers were good people. Please don't lump them all together.
All we know about her drug conviction is that she received probation and it was all due to a local shop owner who turned her in. Wish they'd tell us who it was because I applaud their character and strength for doing so.

Jennifer,

DO NOT LET THAT GO! EVEN IF YOU THINK YOU HAVE LET IT GO, YOU HAVE NOT!!! THAT IS GOING TO BE WITH YOU FOREVER!!!!

YOU HAVE TO CHOOSE WHETHER YOU'RE GOING TO BE A VICTIM OR NOT!!!!

AS WOMEN, WE'VE HAD TO FIGHT TO BE ALLOWED IN CHURCHES---WE WERE NOT EVEN CONSIDERED HUMANS FOR A VERY LONG TIME BY RELIGION!!!

MANY WOMEN GAVE THEIR LIVES IN THE FIGHT TO VOTE IN THIS COUNTRY! THAT IS WHY WOMEN CAN VOTE NOW.

YOU WROTE THAT ON HERE, SO IN YOUR OWN WAY YOU HAVE FOUGHT BACK! BE PROUD OF YOURSELF FOR THAT AND PLEASE CONTINUE TO FIGHT. SOMETIMES HOPE AND FIGHTING ARE ALL WE HAVE LEFT.

(just don't do anything like kill the bastard(s)...you may get in trouble for that. please write back if you see this, I would be happy to help you.)

Jennifer,

Also...

Do NOT confuse GOD and JESUS with religion. I'm sure God and Jesus would hate what's become of most religion.

God and Jesus are real. Religion is MAN-MADE.
