    Talking Fuzzy logic: All cops do is bother people

    They'll bother you if you assault an officer, drive drunk, drive a stolen car, have a suspended license, and fight going to jail.

    Woman charged with trying to run down officer
    FUZZY LOGIC: She was allegedly drunk and had suspended license, too.

    An Anchorage police officer talking to two men on a Fairview corner early Monday became the target of an irate woman who tried running him down with an SUV, police said.

    She stopped when the officer darted behind his patrol car.

    Margaret Andrew, 29, told rookie officer Nicholas Saldana she ran at him "because all cops do is bother other people," police spokesman Lt. Dave Parker said.

    In addition to a felony assault charge, investigation revealed Andrew was driving a stolen vehicle, she was drunk, and her driver's license had already been suspended, Parker said.

    It all took place at 12th and Gambell about 3:15 a.m. Saldana, who finished his field training Aug. 22, was talking to the men he had encountered on the street. It was not clear what the topic of discussion was, but Andrew apparently had no connection to the men, Parker said.

    "It didn't have anything to do with the woman," he said. "As I understand it, she did not like the police bothering anyone."

    As the conversation continued, the driver of a GMC SUV parked across the street -- later identified as Andrew -- kept flashing its lights, police said. The tires then screeched and Saldana looked up to see the SUV barreling down on him, Parker said.

    "Fearing for his life, Ofc. Saldana was able to take cover behind his patrol car," Parker said in a written statement. "The SUV stopped just short of hitting him."

    Saldana, who was not injured, arrested Andrew. She then informed him of her distaste for police interaction with the public and said she just wanted to distract him from talking to the men, police said

    She succeeded.

    Andrew was charged with driving with a suspended license, driving under the influence, third-degree assault, and vehicle theft.

    As she was awaiting booking into the Anchorage jail, Andrew had to be restrained by three officers after she tried to kick Saldana and charged at another officer, police said.

    Her bail was set at $4,500. She is set to make a court appearance tomorrow.

    That bail definitely fits the crime
    Romans 13:4
    For he is God's servant to do you good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword for nothing. He is God's servant, an agent of wrath to bring punishment on the wrongdoer.

    My brother is on that department, and when he was a rookie, someone tried to do the same after he told them they couldn't park in a no parking spot. Charges were dropped.



    Wonder if it is the same woman? I'll have to ask...

    He who signs the cheques, makes the rules.
    He who makes the rules, has the power.

    Ya know, I can't help but wonder if these morons that say this, how they feel about our current members of the military, since they kind of fit in the same category. I always say; If you feel that you can't stand behind them, feel free to stand in front of them.

    With an attitude like that , Ms. Andrew will probably end up in the Obama Administration.
    SI VIS PACEM PARA BELLUM

    "It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
    -Ex-Sheriff Martin Howe to Will Kane in "High Noon"

    Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.
