A Highway Patrol trooper who caught another officer speeding to an off-duty job at 120mph is suing for more than $500,000 – saying his allies harassed her after he was fired.
Florida’s Donna Jane Watts made national headlines after handcuffing Miami Police Department officer Fausto Lopez, while he was in full uniform and driving a police car.
Since the incident in 2011 she claims she has had threatening calls on her cell phone, police cars idling outside her house and fellow officers accessing her private driver’s license information.
Ms Watts – who is suing more than 25 police agencies – said she is even afraid to open her mailbox.”* The Young Turks hosts Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian break it down.

The Young Turks (Winner – Best Political Podcast & Best Political News Site of 2009) were the first original talk show on Sirius satellite radio and the first live, daily webcast on the internet. But that is not the revolution.
We are a rare show that combines all of the news that people care about in one place. We are not afraid to talk about politics and entertainment and sports and pop culture. But that is not the revolution either.
The real revolution is in daring to be honest with people. We don’t patronize our viewers or lie to them. We have real conversations and deliver the news honestly.
