A Washington DC police officer, just back from maternity leave after having her second child, has been forced to take additional unpaid leave because she cannot wear the bullet-proof vest she'd need to perform street patrol duties.  Officer Sashay Brown had requested a desk-based assignment while she was breastfeeding because the vest was very painful and, she said, could clog her milk ducts and affect her milk supply.

The Washington Examiner reports:

The DC police force has recently suffered high attrition rates, losing around 15 officers each month.
