There are risks involved in everything. Those of you saying this woman had every right to be there are only 1/2 correct.
Again, we have WATCHED police beating protesters around the country for two months now. You would imagine that someone actually attending one of these
protests would be very aware of this.
So, she was an informed protester and was aware of the dangers involved and chose to attend nonetheless. If you know Compton is dangerous, yet you
choose to take your baby for a stroller ride through the neighborhood, you cannot expect anything but bad to happen.
It's a tragedy but pregnant women shouldn't stand in chaotic crowds when the possibility of violence exists. Again, I'm not defending the police - I'm
just trying to point out what a stupid decision this woman made.
For the record, if my wife were pregnant and trying to attend a protest or concert or any other event with a large, chaotic crowd, I would do
everything possible to convince her not to go. Fortunately I married an intelligent and loving person who wouldn't need a common sense injection in
