Response to freshwest (Reply #38)

40. Her death resonated with many, and re-ignited the "girls can't do that" debate WRT to policing.

She was one of the first women to do full-scale (as opposed to "woman's jail" type) policing, out on the street. She was very young and engaged to marry. Her murder got a lot of coverage. This pic was rather iconic




as were others of her dying in the street, held by her fiance, and her funeral. Margaret Thatcher made a bit of political hay off her death.

It's also why a lot of British people said "Good enough for him" when Qadaffi was cornered and killed. This murder and Lockerbie are still in the minds of many.
