Additional Information:
Frank Rizzo:
Frank Rizzo joined the Philadelphia Police Department in the 1940s, rising through the ranks to become Police Commissioner in 1967. Frank Rizzo resigned as police commissioner in 1971 to run for Mayor.  He was elected to two terms as the Mayor of Philadelphia.  He has a book, The Sayings of Chairman Frank, listed on Amazon.  But did he write it? 

According to a Time article of 10-25-77, A coalition of the Americans for Democratic Action and Rizzo foes failed to oust "hizzoner" by means of a recall drive last year. Now, seeking to head off any attempt by Rizzo to maneuver around the Philadelphia mayoralty's two-term restriction, A.D.A. is trying yet another weapon: The Sayings of Chairman Frank, a 100-page compendium of Rizzoisms published last week that is intended to make municipal voters laugh and the city's mayor weep.

Lawrencia "Laurie" Bembenek
Lawrencia "Laurie" Bembenek, also known as "Bambi" Bembenek, (born August 15, 1958) is a woman convicted of murdering her husband's ex-wife, Christine Schultz, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, on May 28, 1981. Her story garnered national attention, and "Bambi" became a folk hero as a "woman scorned". Bembenek's then-husband, Fred Schultz, was a Milwaukee Police Department detective. Bembenek herself was a former Milwaukee police officer who had been fired and had gone on to sue the department, claiming that it engaged in sex discrimination and other illegal activities. Bembenek had also worked briefly as a waitress at a Playboy club. At the time of her arrest, she was working for Marquette University's Public Safety Department, in downtown Milwaukee. There are references to her suing the Milwaukee Police Department over sexual harassment.  The question is, did she make probation?
