Court: Implants not impediment to police job
BERLIN (AP) — A German court ruled a prospective Berlin police recruit’s breast implants cannot legally be used as grounds to keep her off the force.
The woman applied in 2012 to join the Berlin police force, but was rejected after authorities said her breast implants would prevent her from wearing a protective vest or riot gear.
They argued the implants would mean the protective gear put so much pressure on her chest there was a risk of fibrosis or other health problems.
But a Berlin administrative court Tuesday upheld her challenge of the decision, saying a doctor testified protective gear should cause no greater health problems for a woman with implants than without.
Waffle House manager imposter steals $100 cash
ATLANTA (AP) — Atlanta police are searching for a woman dressed in a Waffle House uniform who walked into a restaurant pretending to be an area manager — and left with about $100 in cash from the register.
The heist happened shortly after 6 a.m. last Wednesday at one of the chain’s 24-hour diners on the city’s southeast side.
Atlanta police spokeswoman Kim Jones said the suspect began acting as an area manager and conducted an inspection of the restroom area. She allegedly then continued her routine as real area managers do.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported she also turned the cash register key and took out about $100.
Police said the woman was seen leaving the store in a Mercury Mountaineer SUV with Georgia tags and a male driver behind the wheel.
