It’s dark days for cops. And this has again been personified after a female Nashville Metro police officer was decommissioned over allegedly slapping a female suspect who had just stuck her with a syringe needle.

Police said Officer Elizabeth Berry-Loucks was searching a woman, being detained on felony drug and gun charges, when she was stuck by an uncapped syringe concealed in the woman’s bra. Berry-Loucks, whose immediate reaction was to slap the suspect in the face, was then herself arrested and charged with assault, according to documents.
