I don't know about a billion. That's my tax dollars afterall! But she definitely should be heavily compensated. I believe she's currently sueing for $25k for wrongful death and an unspecified amount punitive.
There are a few questions about the wrongful death. I am in no way a doctor, but how likely is it to stop a miscarriage? I have heard from an EMT that as she was already in the process of having a miscarriage, there was nothing that could be done to save the fetus. So on that grounds, the wrongful death may not have merit. I encourage anyone with more medical knowledge than I to correct this.
There was however a very real danger of the woman bleeding to death or suffering from infection. Obviously this didn't happen, but the officers are still guilty of assault in the very least.

I hope she goes to prison.
If they can find actual scientific evidence, beyond a doubt that the officers actions caused the baby to die, then let her win the suit. And still go to prison. Why is it I am always told to feel sorry for dumb!$^ ???? Kids life woulda been hell anyways.
