    A moment's googling reveals she is a former (?) b-movie actress who was in such classics as 'Vice Squad Vixens.' Suspect the 'reserve police' job was just to spice up her resume and the video a bid to create 'controversy' and somehow get her the attention her acting skills have not.

    Sounds right. I was going to point out reservists are far from real cops. Probably only a matter of due process that resulted in a suspension instead of directly to dropped.
    Perish any man who suspects that these men either did or suffered anything unseemly.

    Her comments aren't even clever. If you are going to be a jerk at least have some better material.

    After watching 30 seconds I feel dumber. I don't think I could watch the whole thing and still be able to add 2+2.

    I don't know why the commenters are bringing the first amendment into it.

    "Congress shall make no law...abridging the freedom of speech"

    It doesn't say "You can be an idiot and have your job protected."

    She's an unpaid volunteer, so it's not like there's any real issue about being "fired" or suspended with or without pay. As a cyclist, I can't decide how to take her except as an idiot/ If she's equally idiotic and hateful about everybody and everything, then I take this as (p*ss poor) satire. However, if bicycles uniquely got dumped on, than it's different.

    To me she's a wannabe shock jock. I don't blame the PD from distancing themselves from this nonsense. I'd be more forgiving if she were actually funny in any way, but whether this is supposed to be satire or not it clearly misses the mark. Howard Stern, look what you've spawned.

    She made the mistake of doing it period. Because, To keep her on the force, regardless of paid or volunteer. Would leave a black mark on the city.

    We are now in the "lather rinse repeat" phase ("delete repost repeat"), aka wackamole, of internut video scandals. A few short seconds with your favorite search engine will find it for you - again and again and again, in less watched corners of the internut.

    It says she has been placed on leave. She does need to be fired permanately.
