    Actually her 1st and 4th amendments were violated, I have the utmost respect for all of our law enforcement but come on, Don’t get butt hurt over a finger, she probably doesn’t have any respect for authority , just look around you and see how parents are letting their children be disrespectful parasites . It’s not going to get better.
