Sherry Reynolds, who lived in Seattle for some years, tried to “obstruct” what turned out to be apparent police brutality in progress, and got prosecuted for it. Internal Affairs and the (Bushie) Justice Department – contrary to FBI agents’ impressions – declined to act, but she was acquitted. She was previously a volunteer firefighter, a compassionate HIV/AIDS worker, and a faithful Mormon. Wherever she is now, God bless her.

(Sorry if it sounds like she’s dead, it’s just that I have no more-up-to-date info on her! 🙂 )
