Hospital Employee's Facebook Attack on LE Follows Duty Death

September 05, 2013  | 

An employee of a Maryland medical center where a Baltimore County Police officer died following a shooting is now under investigation for attacking law enforcement on her Facebook page.

Following the death of Officer Jason Schneider, Lisa Powell added an obscenity-laced post to Facebook that also said all officers are dity, reports ABC News.

If officers are ever called on an emergency to Ms. Powell's home please stop off at my house first for some advice. I'm not that far from her home here in Sarasota, FL. Thanks.

An injury that I sustained prior to retiring from Baltimore County P.D. required my being flown to Maryland Shock Trauma. This was over 20 years ago, but the Shock Trauma team that I had was very professional. It's sad that a person who works there and sees what happens to police officers in the line of duty would be foolish enough to post such a diatribe of negative comments on police and particularly one killed in the line of duty. As we have bad cops that can reflect badly on our profession obviously, the medical profession does as well.

A perso like this should not be working in the Medical profession.

Let's all contact her employer and let them know how we feel about her post.

In the medical profession there are more then 100,000 patients killed a year from medical errors through the USA. After reading about Officer Schneider, killed on duty in Baltimore it makes me wonder what kind of people do these hospitals hire. I would not want Powell, to attend me or my family. This is one hospital employee (Powell) that without a tout should be fired.

I see you so called "Defenders of the public", aren't real fond of freedom of speech. Say something negative about the Amerian Samurai, and get your head chopped off.

CubsFan @ 9/7/2013 1:14 PM

Here's some free speech for you Mr. Wright... You're a freaking d-bag.

Richard Speake @ 9/8/2013 3:41 AM

To Mr. Wright, we are not "so-called" defenders of the public, we are protectors of the public. And although public servants, we also enjoy the freedom of unrestricted speech in our personal lives. This revelation that a member of the medical profession would personally attack a police officer immediately after a death is shocking to all, not just Law Enforcement. Now as a member of a Maryland Law Enforcement Agency, and a Police Officer in Maryland for over 30 years I can say without the least hesitation that the trauma care offered by Shock Trauma is without precedence. They are the pioneers and leaders in this type of care, and have always enjoyed a wonderful relationship with Maryland Police Officers. The ignorant and mis timed words of a employee of that hospital should not be used a a benchmark of how they view law enforcement. Mr. Wright sleep tight in your bed, and know no matter what a dirtball you are we will still protect you!

There are bad apples everywhere. So a hospital has theirs. If administraion deals with it effectively, no harm in the BIG PICTURE. Nothing to see here folks, MOVE ALONG!

Richard Hightower @ 9/9/2013 5:41 AM

To the Police Officers posting here -- please remember you do not protect individuals or "people" in the course of Law Enforcement. You protect Society as a whole by ensuring Law has power behind it to force compliance. LEO's must understand their role in our soceity. You are not a "Knight in Shinning Armor" protecting serfs and damsels. You are a agent of government and the order implied by its existence -- nothing more. So please get off your high-horses gentelmen.

AJ @ 9/9/2013 7:52 AM

@Richard Hightower: take your issues elsewhere. You clearly don't know a damn thing about US law enforcement and until you have chased down an armed criminal in defense of the defenseless, putting your own life on the line, shut your damn pie-hole!

Until you have done CPR to try and resuscitate an infant... shut your damn pie-hole!

Until you have gone into a school/ church to engage that spree shooter... shut your damn pie-hole.

I could go on all day but I think we get the point. Cops are not knights in shining armor. We are just everyday citizens who volunteer to do what's right in defense of the constitution and our fellow citizens at the risk of our own life and limb.

We don't want your adoration RICHARD (aptly named sir), but you clearly don't know what you are talking about.

Chief B @ 9/9/2013 8:12 AM

AJ, WELL SAID!

Adding:

Until you put your have in between the hammer and frame of a revolver to prevent a knucklehead from shooting his wife in the head... shut you pie-hole

ellen @ 9/9/2013 8:06 PM

Lisa Powell, if you are a nurse, I am ashamed that you are a member of my profession, and I wish to have you removed from duty until you can get some mental health care. I don't even know what you wrote but from the responses posted here it was clearly inappropriate. Any LE officer or member of a FD has my utmost respect ALWAYS. Long time ED nurse here.

Greg @ 9/10/2013 6:00 AM

This gang-banger thug wanna' be is pretty pathetic but an example of the lower class denizens of Baltimore. I'm sure she has the same attitude against any white victim coming through Balto Shock Trauma.

Not a rare attitude, just typical racist poison.
