      Mike R

      NYC, NY

She was bitten and beaten by 6 police officers  in downtown Nassau, while conducting a Segway tour with tourists; a job she loved very much.  After putting 7 bogus charges on her and after going through a 2 year trial, the judge found her guilty and sentenced her to 1 year in prison!!

This is INJUSTICE at its PEAK!   If it happened to HER!  It can happen to YOU!

Read the following articles below as well as view the youtube video link to learn more about her story.
