What's a Christian police officer to do?  One day, an Indiana cop adds a ticketed driver to a prayer list and gets fired for proselytizing the citizenry, and the next day an Idaho cop prays for the passenger in a car stopped for breaking the law, yet he receives unmitigated praise for compassion and ignoring the violation.

[Kootenai County sheriff’s] Deputy Matthew Brakeman said the woman was going about 10 miles over the speed limit.

"I asked where they were headed, and she said to the oncologist," Brakeman said. "She then started to become a little bit emotional."

He learned the driver's mother had been battling cancer. They were making another painful visit to the doctor's office.

"Walked back up to the passenger side and asked her mother if she would accept a prayer," Brakeman said. "And she said, 'Absolutely.' So then we prayed and told them to have a good day and went back to my car."
