Pacifica officer incurred painful life injuries

Stacy Jacquith, former Pacifica police officer
And this is one of the stories we don't usually hear about.

San Mateo County Times/Joshua Melvin, 8/4/13.  "Pacifica:  Career-ending injury haunts ex-police officer."

"Most days, Stacy Jaquith is left listless by pain killers, unable to drive and socked by wince-inducing pain if she tries to sit up. Other days for the former Pacifica police officer are even worse.

....  On April 29, 2010 she pulled over a Palo Alto man who didn't want to be stopped. He ended up driving way with Jaquith clutching his arm, dragging her down Highway 1 a short distance before she let go and slammed to a stop on the pavement. He served less than a year in jail, but Jaquith's painful back injury has continued to dominate her life despite several surgeries."

Some jackass will complain she made too much money and will collect disability pay for life.

I saw this happen. It was horrific and it happened in super slow motion. It was really sureal.

Had she been bitten by an off-leash pitbull while demanding the owners ID most of the Pacifica doggi-pooh would be applauding.
