Check out this story about a female police officer from Bogota, NJ. Officer Regina Tasca had stopped fellow police officers from beating an emotionally disturbed man she claims was no threat to anyone.

According to WPIX,

Bogota Police chose to suspend Tasca, an 11-year veteran with numerous commendations. There are photographs from the hospital documenting the bruises on the 22-year-old’s head, back, arms and wrists.

Tasca says the real reason she’s being called out on these charges is she crossed the “blue line” by refusing to support another officer even when he used excessive force. The other problem? The Bogota Police Department is very small–fewer than 20 officers. And there, she is a definitive minority.
