Police, stop kicking pregnant women

In Georgia, a police officer can kick a pregnant woman in the stomach and get away with it.

Six months ago on 12/12/11, Dekalb County officer Jerad Wheeler responded to a domestic violence call. From the article on Huffington Post, it appears that the officer was the only one on the scene at the time, which is highly negligible. At least two officers need to be sent to a domestic violence scene.

When the officer arrives, he is unable to control the situation between Darius Usher and his girlfriend. Officer Wheeler tasers Usher. Then, Usher's sister, Raven Dozier, became distraught after seeing her brother being tased. Dozier was nine months pregnant at the time.

Since Officer Wheeler was messing up, he decided to mess up even more by kicking Dozier in the stomach. Oops! Then, he arrested Usher and Dozier. Dozier was then rushed to the hospital and was given an emergency C-section because her stomach was bruised. Fortunately, the baby was OK.

The reason that Ofc. Wheeler gave for kicking her in the stomach was that he learned that in the academy. There's no way that he learned that he should kick a pregnant woman in the stomach at police academy. He was probably taught population control at the academy and took it way too far.

For his bad decisions as a police officer in this incident, his superiors at the Dekalb County Police Department thought that he did nothing wrong. Dozier is now suing the county.
