VT woman who cut officer’s throat acquitted!

http://www.policeone.com/Officer-Saf...ed-of-charges/

Times like this, makes me wonder why I don't find another profession. Less than a two hour deliberation?

Rutland City Police arrested Berube, along with her husband for possessing a stolen credit card.

Surveillance footage from the police station’s booking area captured Berube sneaking up on Officer Nguyen from behind, with a 2-inch blade in her hand. She put her hands around Officer Nguyen’s neck and struggled with him until she was subdued by other officers.

Officer Nguyen suffered a cut near his jugular vein as a result of the attack.

Karma's a biach. I hope soon she dies a slow, painful, drawn out, suffering end.

I wish I could say I am surprised but not anymore. Unfortunately, it will be difficult for the officer to sue her in civil court with the acquittal.

Ambush attacks are on the rise. Watch your backs ladies and men!

In all seriousness, who the hell let all the crazy out? Maybe it's just my perspective from being behind the fence most of the time, but it seems like things are getting a lot more violent, and a directed specifically at LE, than in the past.

While Baker and his officers prepared to move on, Berube’s family members said she was preparing to start her life over again.

Once a registered nurse who worked in a hospital maternity ward and a mother of three, Berube lost everything when she developed an addiction to painkillers, divorced from her husband and lost custody of her children, according to testimony Berube provided from the witness stand Friday.

Six months before she was arrested in 2012, Berube checked into an inpatient drug treatment center in Maine where she didn’t cure her addiction but did meet MacLean.
Patchman may have a point. Karma just may catch up with her after all....

Unbelievable. Convicted of nothing, not simple assault, not possession of an instrument of crime? Nothing.

Jurors bought that because this was a stupid plan, she is not guilty.

Funny how the defense attorney stated that she is a nurse and knew how to use her knife if that was her intent. She went to Nurse knife use school.

Dopes on the jury. I don't care what their perspective was. It started when she maliciously touched the officer with a knife.

Disgusting.

If she actually did murder the officer, would they have the guts to convict her then?

Gotta wonder.

Shame the system let down this victim/officer.

May karma catch up with her soon. With a full blown painful, drawn out, suffering and lonely end. In a bedbug ridden, roaches and rats infested SRO. And before she's discovered, rats and roaches will have eaten her face out.

Heck, I almost wish it would be in my jurisdiction.

Oh, it will. Without a doubt. Either in this life or the next, or both. Even so, I hope she finds redemption.

The kids in my little neighborhood most definitely are getting more bold and blatant. I'm sure that's at least due in part to the fact that it is permitted by upper management, in the same fashion as is permitted on the street by crooked, sick, lame and lazy politicians, judges, and prosecutors.

I wonder what the jury was smoking.

you know what they say about juries, they are made up of people too stupid to get out of jury duty; this verdict shows it to be true.

Seriously! No attempted escape? Brandishing? Negligent knife handling? I had to read the story twice to make sure our old prosecutor wasn't working there now. Pathetic.

Evidently she had a jury of "her" peers, not peers of the average citizen.

I would have voted to hang her.

**** her. I hope she gets a bad dose of heroin and dies painfully.

I hope the members of the jury are personally and repeatedly victimized by junkies.

My hunch says she will be one of those long term junkies who never really die off, just creates more work.

I've discussed a potential solution with some of our local EMS folks - tattoo "DNR" on forehead. Unfortunately, there's some legal issues that require specific language, and that wouldn't be good enough.

Oh well.
