This weeks' installment of "Ann Crosses the Line!"

"It turns out that, far from 'de-escalating force' through their superior listening skills, female law enforcement officers vastly are more likely to shoot civilians than their male counterparts. (Especially when perps won't reveal where they bought a particularly darling pair of shoes.) "

This little gem is thrown into a rather thoughtful and compelling piece about the inherent danger of putting female police officers in situations where they are guarding 6 foot plus violent felons. It's a great article and must be read... but yet again, Ann crosses the line by demeaning women on the police force with this gratuitous line.

Love the column though!
