There is important detail to this story missing, guaranteed. I've seen bigger issues resolved with a phone call to a supervisor. This wasn't, for a reason. We just don't know what reason.

Not cop bashing. Just disbelief. I can't imagine what the thought was going through their head.
As a cop, they are trained to exert control over a traffic stop situation, attempting to defuse, but not backing down, either, escalating if necessary. Most have experienced themselves the stop with a compliant person, and a stop with one who is challenging. Why would someone in the know be anything but compliant? Does not make sense. I'm at a loss what could have led to this, and have the trooper at fault.

Imagined conversation.
"License and registration, please."
"What's the problem? I'm a PG County cop".
"I don't care. License and registration"
"Didn't you hear me? I'm one of you!"
"Doesn't matter. You broke the law. License and registration. Now."
God only knows where it goes from there.

A guy I worked with had a brother who was a NYC cop. They had official "family of NYC Police" cards that they were to display at a traffic stop. He admitted to using it quite a bit. He whined for weeks because he got a speed-camera ticket, and his card was useless. Honestly, I had little sympathy.

All said, gotta love the sheepdog, but the sheepdog can't choose to eat a lamb and share with the family on their terms. Doing so makes them the wolf in sheepdog's clothing. When off duty, or on the wrong end of a traffic stop, one is no longer a sheepdog, but rather a lamb or wolf. Gotta know one's place and play the part.

If you don't have the mental aptitude to play your part when being stopped, how can I "joe public" trust that you will know how to play your part when you are the one stopping someone? Glad she's gone. She did it to herself. It's nothing more than a darwin award.

Also “suspended with pay” doesn’t mean she’s at home watching the daytime stories collecting a check. It means she has no arrest powers and her gun is gone. She is probably at a desk performing an Admin function.
