    I ordered 6 copies

    Done!

    If she is serious about obtaining another career as a LEO, she needs to lessen her interwebz footprint. In the real world I have no doubt she would make a fine LEO, but her blog is working against her. So is the termination from Minneapolis. There are definitely departments that would overlook the termination( I know people that work for WMATA and DCPS that have been terminated from other agencies), but the blog thing really isn’t a good idea. It gives someone a chance to form an opinion on you prior to meeting you in person, and you never know what type of person that is going to be.

    Her book must not be very good…

    The Duck- Thank You. She told me about that order on the phone. She was amazed.

    Jeff- You are not wrong. The problem is the things on her blog are true,and she is a big fan of speaking the truth. She is not a fan of liars. Which is how she would label MPD, the church leadership, the coroner who said the shooter killed himself, and the MSM.

    John- Her book is self published. I just found it about 2 months ago, and I am a highly skilled blogger with no life. (There are reviews on amazon if you want to look.)

    I’m sure I’d like her if I met her in person, but I really don’t like her attitude towards being called a civilian. Not actively serving in the military? Then you’re as civilian as I am.

    And I agree that she should reduce her footprint if she wants a LEO job.

    My bet is she cannot pass the psych for police entrance. There is a reason no one wants to touch her… I highly doubt it is the liberal media conspiring against her folks…

    My fault for not posting this earlier:

    “I read my quote you added to Say Uncle and I sounded harsh and may have offended people, but I didn’t mean to.

    The reason I say I wasn’t some “civilian” who got lucky is because I had my beloved police career in Minneapolis ripped away from me from some bogus charge alleging that I called a bus driver an a**hole when I didn’t.

    Because of that, the media kept calling me “security guard” after the shooting. Any police officer would find that insulting. I hope you can understand now why that label bothers me so much.

    I was not given a medal of valor from Colorado Springs PD as a licensed police officer, which I was then and still am, but as a citizen. I appreciated the medal, but that was a huge slap in the face, as I’m sure any police officer would understand.

    Enough said. Please feel free to post this on Say Uncle and I apologize if I offended anyone.”

    Sounds to me like she has been Richard Jewelled. For some reason the press can hardly stand a non-government-actor as hero. Goes against the narrative.

    That said, I’m with Jeff, she needs to get off the internets. Tell the truth in your memoirs at life’s sunset — not while trying to find a job. I read her blog as: the last two employers I’ve had are lying liars who lie and I hate them; also, I may be developing a drinking problem. Any employer would have to ask if they want to be added to that list in a couple of years.

    She’s a hero. I salute her and hope she finds a job that is rewarding and peace in her soul.
