This is a touching story, but facts are facts.
Sending a woman in to do a MAN's job is WRONG in the first place.
Sending a WOMAN with a dog to do a MAN's job is a GUARANTEED DISASTER.
Sending a WOMAN with a gun to do a MAN's job makes her a walking gun rack for criminals--which is why a JUDGE and 3 others were shot to death by a nigger who grabbed the gun from the walking gun rack.
Women ALWAYS panic in situations which men would NOT panic.
She belongs in prison. She should stay there until she and all her "fellow" women "police officers" finally ADMIT that police work is a MAN's job, and not a WOMAN'S job.
For every WOMAN sent into a dangerous situation, two MEN must back them up, where ONE man would have been sufficient. Having WOMEN involved is a COSTLY mistake.

Greetings to the GOPUSA Family of Activists!
Please see the below from Stephanie Mohr and find out what happened when her police dog bit an illegal alien and drug dealer.
Keep up the fight,
----- Robert R. Eberle, Ph.D. President and CEO, GOPUSA
My name is Stephanie Mohr, and I used to be a police officer with the Prince Georges County Police Department in Maryland. Ive sent you a photograph of my little boy, Adam. Its all I have of him right now.
Because instead of tucking Adam into bed tonight, and leaning down to give him one last butterfly kiss...I am sitting in a jail cell. A jail cell where Ive been sentenced to spend 10 years of my life for a crime I didnt commit!
Please let me explain.
I received over 25 letters of commendation and two awards during my years on the police force. But to the bureaucrats at the U.S. Department of Justice, that doesnt matter. To them, Im just a white police officer whose police dog bit an illegal immigrant on the leg in 1995.
You may have heard about my case on TV. On the night of September 21, 1995, I was on patrol with my police dog, Valk. The area I patrolled, Takoma Park, had been suffering a rash of burglaries. My partner, Sgt. Anthony Delozier, and I got a call for backup from an officer who had spotted two men on the roof of a nearby store. We knew we had likely found the perpetrators.
When we arrived, the situation was tense. The suspects, Ricardo Mendez and Herrera Cruz, had been ordered down from the roof and told to face a wall. They were shouting back and forth to each other in a stream of Spanish.
And then it happened.
Mendez made a move as if to flee the scene. In accordance with my training, I released my dog, Valk, who was trained to perform the standard bite and hold move. He did so, biting Mendez on the leg and holding him until I and the other officers could handcuff him.
Both of the suspects were charged with 4th degree burglary. Cruz pled guilty and was deported to Mexico. Mendez was convicted of illegally entering the U.S. and selling crack cocaine and was deported to San Salvador. As for me, I was relieved to get two dangerous drug dealers off our streets.
So imagine my shock five years later when the U.S. Department of Justice announced that it would indict me for violating Ricardo Mendezs civil rights by allowing my police dog to bite his leg!
Mendez, a criminal and an illegal alien, had been fleeing the scene of a crime, and it had been my duty to release Valk and apprehend him. But the bureaucrats in the Civil Rights Division of the U.S. Department of Justice chose to ignore the facts; they were looking for cases of police brutality, and I was exactly what they wanted: a white officer whose police dog had bitten a minority.
My fellow officers and I testified in court that I had done my job by the book. And it was true: the P.G. County police training clearly states that if a felony suspect makes a move, we are authorized to release our police dogs.
The jury agreed and voted to acquit me 11-1. And thats when things really got ugly.
Civil rights groups were furious. Everyone from Amnesty International to the NAACP declared the arrest racist and demanded further investigation. The Justice Department insisted on a second trial because of the one lone juror who had sided with the prosecution. They got it.
The second trial was a circus. The government flew in Mendez from San Salvador and Cruz from Mexico at taxpayer expense to testify against me. They stacked the jury with minorities who would be sympathetic to illegal immigrants. They drummed up minority witnesses who accused me of using racial epithets against them without a shred of proof!
Their strategy worked. I was convicted and sentenced to ten years in prison for apprehending a drug dealer!
For over two years my son has been without his mother. I think about Adam every minute. It is an unimaginable pain maybe something only a mother can feel. Im not there to crawl in bed with him in the middle of the night when he has a bad dream. Im not there to wrap my arms around him when he falls down. I feel so small, helpless... and alone.
But there is one ray of hope that I am clinging to with all my heart and soul: The Law Enforcement Legal Defense Fund (LELDF).
If youve heard of LELDF then you know its the best friend a police officer could ever have. LELDF helps defend good officers who have been unfairly prosecuted for their split-second decisions in the line of duty. Theyve helped Officer Chuck Schwarz, in New York; Officer Scott Smith, in Connecticut; and Officer Wyatt Henderson, in Florida. And it was LELDF who helped Stacey Koon when the Rodney King-sympathizers tried to throw him in jail back in 1991.
Now, with your help, the LELDF will be doing what they can to help me.
It will be an uphill battle. The appeal alone has cost upwards of $35,000. And there are legal fees for expert witnesses, legal research, and other court fees. To make things worse, I was forced to resign after my conviction, and now in prison I have no means of earning money to fund my case.
I have already missed over two years of my little boys life. I missed his fourth and fifth birthdays. And I cant bear to think how many more precious moments I will miss -- moments that every mother treasures but that I will never see!
Thats why I am going to swallow my pride and ask you the hardest question Ive ever asked another person: Will you help me get home to Adam by sending a tax-deductible contribution to the Law Enforcement Legal Defense Fund to help them fund my appeal?
The U.S. Department of Justice has unlimited federal tax dollars to spend on their case against me. But I must rely on the generous hearts of people like you to help clear my innocent name and send me home to my son!
Any gift you can send -- be it $20, $35, $50, $100, $500 -- is tax-deductible. By clicking here, your tax-deductible contribution will help fund my appeal as well as help other good officers who are being unfairly attacked.
This is my last chance to gain freedom. For me, your $20 gift could be the difference between clearing my name and being there for my dear son or spending the next eight years in prison, innocent, while Adam grows up without a mother. He will be a young man by then... almost 14. And I will have missed the years when a little boy needs his mommy the most.
Thank you so very much for taking the time to read my letter. Just knowing youve done that much gives me hope -- hope that I will get home to Adam before its too late. With your help, Adam will never spend another Christmas without his mom by his side.
P.S. If I can be sent to prison for doing my job, then sooner or later every police officer in this nation will be at risk. By clicking here and contributing, you can help LELDF defend those good officers. Wont you please help me clear my name and get home to my son by supporting LELDF today? I truly appreciate any help you can spare. From the bottom of my heart, thank you!
