A woman who publicly criticized a local police officer on Facebook received a blunt response from the police department.
Christy Carter wrote a one-star review of the Owasso Police Department in Oklahoma on Nov. 12, after she claimed to have been pulled over for going 1 mph over the speed limit, according to Mirror.co.uk.
“I explained I couldn’t ... be late to work and would take a ticket if it got me out of there," Carter wrote. “The officer kept me for 19minutes causing me to loss my new job.”
The department responded on Nov. 13, setting the record straight:
"Interesting take on the event Christy. Your claims are very serious but more alarmingly very false.
"You were stopped for traveling 57MPH in a 45MPH Zone in which you received a WARNING. You failed to keep insurance on your vehicle which is cause for your vehicle to be towed. the very generous police officer allowed you time enough to contact your insurance agency and update your insurance policy by phone, to which you did and were then allowed to leave.
"So, to sum up, this officer gave you a warning for speeding, didn't tow your car and allowed you to contact your insurance to update your policy. Was there anything else this officer could have done for you? Perhaps you meant to score our review higher?"
The response from the Owasso Police Department garnered over 1,000 likes before the review was taken down.
Do you think the department was right to respond the way it did?
