If the everyday person kicked a pregnant woman in the stomach, they would find themselves looking out from inside a cell (as they should).

I'm quite sure a big, strong "peace" officer can protect himself from a scary pregnant woman in another way. They wear a utility belt full of their "tools of the trade".

Disgusting situation all the way round.

hmmm, more disgusting behavior by those we pay to "Protect and Serve" ... soooo, would someone please re-circulate the memo that identifies their duty AS the duty to "Provoke and Subdue" ??
i'm guessing i missed it somewhere along the way.

Absolutely agree with ya love, but surely you should know by now that it's one rule for them and one rule for the rest of us. I think some new type of vetting process for wannabe piggies is whats needed as it seems more and more sociopaths are now running around in uniform doing whatever they damm want to... it pisses me off

Unfortunately, it is very much an "us vs them" situation now. A literal representation of that tired old line about "the lunatics running the asylum".

A new vetting process is exactly what is needed! Along with regular periodic reviews of conduct by an outside, disassociated panel comprised of normal, everyday people. Even at that, the corruption and brutality would continue, and truth be known, encouraged.

Unfortunately this is all too true. Some police officers believe they can get away with excessive force and not have to pay for it... It's disgusting. They do have to use force quite often, but this is a time that it is excessive force. NOT to be sexist, but men can USUALLY overtake a woman with no problem. Kicking them is overkill...
--------------------------------------------------------------

I must add this (off topic): I apologize for derailing this topic and I really should have backed off a LOT sooner... For not doing so, I am VERY SORRY (this goes to all trying to read the thread).

This is far from being an isolated incidence. Gestapo tactics seem to be on the rise.

Police Brutality on the Rise

There is nothing sexist about your comment, Rustyk. It is what it is. Most women are no match against the physical strength of a man.

Yes, force is necessary a lot of the time. Yes, some women are as bad (if not worse) than some men. HOWEVER, force should be the last measure and not the first.

Like I said, they wear a utility belt full of tools.

I couldn't agree more... That belt holds more "toys" that would have done a better job than a kick...Hands Down!..
IF that cop was properly trained, he would have resorted to his "bag-o-tricks" and could have diffused the situation WITHOUT incident.

To play devil's advocate, maybe the "front push kick" was more of a gentle push and less of a kick. Yet, 3 feet does sound a bit close and he possibly interpreted it as violating his personal space/ability to do his work.

With that said, you NEVER make contact with a woman using your feet, especially if you're a cop and especially if the woman is pregnant and the contact zone is her stomach. While we can try to empathize with either side, we were not there and are not privy to all the details that would truly render an accurate verdict. Perhaps it is time to cautiously take a step back from this story although I suspect it will serve as an outlet to vent the anger and frustration so many of us have unfortunately stored.

Yours Truly,

Yours Truly,


You have stated the truth most eloquently, MysteriousHusky. However, this knee-jerk physicality on the part of "peace" officers has gotten very much out of hand.

I remember a time when an officer of the law could be approached without fear of being maced, tazed, kicked or shot. Sadly, that is far from the case now.

I stand by my statement that today's "peace" officers are the embodiment of Russian KGB/gestapo.

Training is only good until that officer joins the ranks of his fellow "peace" officers.

Common sense and moral obligation must come into play at some point.

Lady - and please excuse me if that came off as rude but it is your first name, Thank you for your most kind words and while I do not share your perspective regarding peace officers your point is certainly valid.

Maintaining "peace" and "order" is maintaining a setting according to somebody else's definitions of "peace" and "order". Those definitions vary and while I won't go so far as to label officers reincarnations of the KGB or Nazi Secret Police, I do empathize with your perspective regarding their increased disorderly conduct. Most ironically, non-uniform citizens are often the ones doing Neighbour Hood Watch programs etc but if you followed the Martin shooting of the boy in the hoodie by a Neighbour Hood Watch man, then you will agree when I say nobody is perfect.

Yours Respectfully,

Star and Flag!

Another sad story that is becoming far too common. I fear that people will start to accept police brutality such as this to be normal.

We need to prevent this from being seen as acceptable behavior. Police need to be held to a higher standard. We average citizens can receive a more harsh sentence for killing a police officer than what we can receive for killing an 'average citizen', after all.

No, not rude at all


Perfection, like beauty, is in the eye of the beholder. And, most certainly, there is no such thing as a perfect human.

As I said, I remember a time when officers of the law could be approached without fear. I taught my own children to always find an officer if they found themselves in trouble. My grandchildren are taught that approaching a "peace" officer could cost them their life.

The tactics I see used today are the same ones that were held up as "evil" not so very many years ago. If they were "evil" when practiced in Russia, then they are "evil" when practiced in the USA.

If I could say this was an aberration, an isolated incident, then I wouldn't hold the view I do. Sadly, it is more the norm in today's world.

Anyone that kicked my wife, pregnant or not, would end up in a box.
Being from the state this happened in it's not that shocking to me that it happened.
The po po here are very aggresive an tend to have a hostle demeaner when dealing with people.
They deffinitly have an us vs them attitude.
I grew up watching the po po beat up my friends for just hanging out where we lived.
The Red Dogs(drug task force) would strip you naked in the streets "searching for drugs".
You know what it's like to be 13 and more afraid of the po po then the killers and dealers that grow up around you?
I do... Ftp....
To Timerly....
What's your deal?
Are you an leo?
What's with the attitude twords females?
You seem pretty angry at them and anyone that has opposing views.
