Whilst I am concerned for the baby I share your view. The woman was 8-months pregnant and she is the the middle of a fight between two men!!!!!
Doesn't appear that she was too concerned for her unborn. The policeman on the other hand is trying to break up the fight - I wonder if it would enter his head (in the heat of the moment) that an 8-month pregnant woman would be in this position. My instant tells me - no he wouldn't. I haven't seen a photo of the woman but I have also been in the position of mistaking overweight for pregnant.

She made the decision to be the bad ass of the bunch, Until someone bigger came along. Let me say I am not for the cop either but there is noway she should be rewarded or even patted on the back! This is an area where people neglect their children on a regular basis.

We can't speculate on why he zapped the woman until it's known. Most likely the woman didn't do as she was told and payed the penalty.

Over the years I've heard of cops breaking down, acting irrationally, making mistakes etc... and it reminds me of a case where a cop punched and broke a mouthy kids jaw in the police lockup here, many years ago, in Fremantle. The kid was in custody, in a lockup full of officers, and this one cop lost it, and punched him and if it weren't for the camera in the lockup, it would never have made it obvious what happened. (BTW, the cop was given paid desk bound work, and kept his job. sigh)

All of this makes me sick. Soon we'll need another police force to protect us from the ones we have just now. Even worse, Tasers are on the BBC news today. Here's a snippet - Concerns have been raised for public safety as Taser stun guns are made available to more police officers in England and Wales.
Officers in 10 forces, who are not firearms specialists, will be able to use the 50,000-volt Tasers to protect themselves or the public.
