Police Officer Kicks Pregnant Woman In The Stomach For Questioning Them
An officer with the DeKalb (GA) County Police Department stands accused of kicking a woman in the stomach several months ago — a woman who happened to be nearly nine months pregnant at the time.
Jerad Wheeler had responded to a call about a domestic dispute over child custody involving Raven Dozier’s brother. When the situation became heated, Wheeler fired his Taser at the man. Dozier says she then became upset and started crying, at which point Wheeler allegedly kicked her in the stomach.
He also charged her with obstruction of a police officer, though that charge was later dropped.
According to the officer, Dozier was being aggressive, and the kick was a regulation “front push-kick to the abdomen” that “he was taught to do at the academy.” Also, he says it was dark and she was wearing clothes that obscured the fact that she was pregnant.
Five of Wheeler’s supervising officers OK’d the use of force, and no formal investigation took place. [x]
This is actually one of the most disgusting thing I’ve read/watched in my life.
