Story should have read that she was transported to Shannon for surgery to repair her shattered jaw from being punched...........

Why punch her? I would have kicked her right in her nasty face! Not one word needs to be uttered about race, because she’s already playing that card along with the handicapped card. What a disgusting human!

..the officer who sustained the bite wound went straight to the hospital for a complete blood panel.

There's all kinds of zoonotic diseases these animals can pass onto human beings.
