I thought the #1 rule of having a town job was to never ever rock the boat and reap the lifetime pension and benefits after putting in an arguably adequate effort for 20 years.  And who frickin' thinks it's a good idea to tell a cop how to do his job?

+1 for what? Being completely wrong? The librarian wasn't arrested. She was fired. Actually, from the story, it appears nobody was arrested.

So getting fired is the same as getting arrested now?

Huh.

Sounds like the police had a talk with her supervisors about her behavior after they got there and needed to see what the problem really is.  Susan felt the po po is suppose to just show up and drag away anyone she deems needed to be removed.  The police don't work for the library, Susan.  Some cops actually will take the time to assess situations before taking action, just in case the problem can be resolved in a manner that keeps them from doing paperwork and going to court.

so, she and a patron disagree.  she yells at patron.  management tries to deal with the situation.  she stops management from dealing with the situation.  she calls the cops. the cop tries to deal with the situation with management.  she yells at both, demanding that the cop follow library policy (which cops love, they just love it when you tell them to enforce the law according to your company policy).  management says, wtf, i don't know what's going on.  cop removes the librarian.

and, then management fires her after review of the situation.  not to mention, she was already on some kind of probation for lacking poise and professionalism.

/ good luck with that whistleblower lawsuit.  i don't think this is what congress intended to protect when they wrote that law.

Best thing for her is to apply for Richmond police department. They start at about $100,000 per year and she'd have time to start her collection of cats.

Presumably, she's just gunning for a nuisance settlement, some amount that will be decent money for her but small enough that the town deems it worthwhile to save legal fees and make her go away.

It doesn't sound like management was present during the incident, but rather found out from the police and her coworkers.  I guess treating cops as bouncers won't go very well for you, since the cops were treating it as a dispute.

Tell me about it. I work at a company whose "values" include such lines as "transparency" and "honesty", but those "values" apparently apply only when subordinates are speaking to management, and not the other way around. "Speaking truth to power" is a great way to get ostracized or canned here, no matter how tactful the presentation. The thing is, the second you provide actual information in anything looked at by management, you have to understand that it could be used against them, or against you - that's why such folks keep harping on "positive information."

I'll go DA and take her side. Some d-bag is trying to snatch DVDs so she tells them to GTFO. Patron refuses, so she calls the cops because now the patron is trespassing. Cops show up and try to get out of doing any work, and are disbelieving when she tries to tell them about the actions of the shiatbag patron. Cops leave a follow-up with management to help make her day shiatty for daring to call them in the first place. Management fires her using some bureaucratic BS. Woman sues to see if she can make those farkers pay.

It's pretty clear I read the article by the above description there, buckshot. The only thing that's difficult to explain away is how the officers supposedly had to "forcibly remove her" or "order her" to go to a different area, away from the patron/trespasser. That could've been as simple as her being aggravated at the patron and interjecting a few times, and a short-tempered officer yelled at her to go stand in the corner or something. I also take umbrage at the fact that others are saying she shouldn't have called the police to enforce company policy, as if a business tells you to leave and you refuse, it becomes trespassing.

/I always read the article
//Makes it easier to understand the jokes
///went to the library tonight but managed to not be belligerent
////Highly recommend Mira Grant's "Newsflesh" trilogy if you're into zombie fiction! :)

Here's another possibility. The patron pulled a gun, and the librarian, being the first to see it, let out a loud yell and dove between the shooter and the police officer, deflecting the bullet at the last second off a thick book she had clutched in front of her chest.

See, I can guess facts that aren't supported by the article, too.
