She made a mistake? A mistake that may cost her life, but she could have injured or killed someone else. What she did was stupid! Hopefully she will recover and she will move on but justice needs to be served. Law enforcement has my full respect. They put their lives on the line every day so that I may be safe, but that does not excuse them from being responsible for stupid behavior. Whether they like it or not, they are held to a higher standard and their colleagues should be willing to hold them accountable instead of making excuses. If this was an "ordinary" citizen out there, they would be prosecuted and we need to hold the same standards for her.
