The Hero of Colorado Springs & Her Dark Past

Not surprisingly, the antigun news media are trying to find some way to besmirch the character of Ms. Jeanne Assam (or as we call her, Didn't Miss AWESOME!) We finally find out the dark secret that is why she is no longer a Minneapolis police officer! From December 11, 2007 Associated Press:
Also Tuesday, Minneapolis police Sgt. Jesse Garcia said Assam was fired from the Minneapolis force in 1997 for lying during an internal investigation. Sgt. John Delmonico, president of the Police Officers Federation of Minneapolis, said police were investigating a complaint that Assam swore at a bus driver while she was handling an incident on a city bus.
Please tell me that there's more to this story--or I will be forced to conclude that Minneapolis PD's officers all have to wear special coats, to cover their angel wings.

UPDATE: A reader points out that once a police officer has been caught lying about something so trivial, it makes it very easy to impeach her testimony about important matters. On the one hand, it seems like a minor basis to fire someone; on the other hand, the police department can't have you around for fear of losing a major criminal case based on a lie.
