DC Police Chief running afoul of the Stolen Valor Act of 2005

DC Police Chief wearing an Army ribbon.
Looks to me like she's running afoul of the Stolen Valor Act of 2005. (Unless DC has some screwy law that allows police to wear military decorations.)

18 USC § 704. Military medals or decorations

(a) In General.— Whoever knowingly wears, manufactures, or sells any decoration or medal authorized by Congress for the armed forces of the United States, or any of the service medals or badges awarded to the members of such forces, or the ribbon, button, or rosette of any such badge, decoration or medal, or any colorable imitation thereof, except when authorized under regulations made pursuant to law, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than six months, or both.

It wasn't about the N word

(I'm happy to see Paula Deen has been totally vindicated. The Case against her was thrown out! The Plaintiff got zero dollars because the lawsuit was bogas. The state run obama news media tried to make it all about the N word. Its wasn't about the N word it was about Paula Deen being thrown under the bus by corporations bowing to the state run media. Paula's comming back in a big way, you go girl!) Story Reports
Paula Deen’s sexual harassment, discrimination lawsuit dismissed

Paula Deen’s sexual harassment, discrimination lawsuit dismissed
The lawsuit that launched the embattled chef’s recent difficulties has reached an agreement ‘without any award of costs or fees to any party.’

Attorneys for both sides reached a settlement “without any award of costs or fees to any party,” according to the documents.

Judge William Moore had dismissed racial prejudice claims earlier in August, ruling plaintiff Lisa Jackson — who is white — was not the target of bias.

“The matter has been amicably resolved,” Matthew Billips, an attorney for Jackson, told the Daily News on Friday.

Jackson, a former employee at the Savannah restaurant Deen ran with brother Bubba Hiers, sued the two fried-food-loving siblings in 2012.

The former manager of Uncle Bubba’s Seafood and Oyster House said she had witnessed rampant racial and sexual discrimination for years.

The allegations burned Deen financially when she admitted to having used the N-word and then released a mortifying apology on YouTube apologizing for that and for cracking racist jokes at the eatery.

She admitted in a deposition for the $1.2 million discrimination trial that she had “of course” used the slur in the past.

(She was talking about using the N word about a black bank robber who held her up in the past. This is what the media is leaving out.) Story Reports
