Samantha knew that she was right on this one, and decided to fight for her rights and self-respect. As a police officer, she did an incredible job, and was often honored and appreciated for her hard work and talents. It’s only because her part-time job involved her working with her body that she received such negative treatment from her superiors.
Some of her colleagues began referring to her lingerie modeling career as a form of selling her body, but Samantha chose to look at it as a symbol of female empowerment. She was celebrating her body and felt that it gave her both confidence and pride. The police officer worked hard to get in shape and deserved every bit of glory and money she received from it.
Bad Reactions From the Team
While Samantha expected that her teammates would be initially shocked and perhaps even skeptical of her second occupation, she didn’t expect them to react as badly as they did. The crew was highly dismissive of her line of work and claimed it seriously jeopardized their unit's ability to command respect on the street.
Although these professional criticisms were painful, she couldn’t help but agree with their logic. What ended up really hurting her, though, were the countless personal attacks Samantha received from the people she was so used to working with over the last few years. She was even openly ridiculed by some of her teammates.
Samantha felt ashamed of her colleagues' behavior, especially since she was an immigrant like many of them. The young police officer had a family to support and worked two jobs like many others in the force. The only reason they were disapproving and making fun of her was that she was modeling.
Despite having to take more vacation days than others on the team, she was never late, negligent, or even missed a meeting. There was no reason for anyone to judge Samantha for her job, especially not as harshly as her crew did. The young officer knew it was there all along — the gender barrier. Although she fought to overcome it before, there it was in full force.
The feud between Samantha and her colleagues only heated up over time, as she became more and more vocal about her opinions. Eventually, the young officer simply told all those that were critical and mocked her, “If people find it offensive, they can close their eyes!” This left her haters speechless, and they didn’t know how to respond.
Eventually, the drama became a viral sensation, as Samantha had 369,000 followers on her Instagram account. Since she never received politeness and courtesy from her colleagues, the model chose to avoid giving it herself. Samantha was very vocal on social media about the treatment she received on the force and used it to send a message about double standards for different genders.
Surviving the Drama
Not only was Samantha deeply relieved when the truth came out and she didn’t have to hide it anymore, but eventually things also began looking better than ever. The young police officer and model finally felt free to be herself and felt like a huge weight had been lifted off her shoulders.
Back at the police station, most of the drama had passed as people began accepting the fact that their female officer was doubling as a lingerie model. Samantha was thrilled. On the one hand, she was still a hard-working police officer who protected the streets of New York with pride, and on the other hand, she was a world-famous lingerie model with a huge waiting list of jobs to choose from. Her hard work was paying off, and Samantha was reaping the reward.
