Please Sigh: NYPD Takes Excessive Force Too Far - Pinning Down Pregnant Woman

Society & Culture  (tags: NYPD, excessive force, police brutality, human rights, non-violent crimes, Pregnant woman pinned down by cops, Sandra Amezquita )

- 1633 days ago -
NYPD is under investigation for a rash of incidents where excessive force was used. But one of the latest - a pin-down of a pregnant woman - puts an innocent unborn child at risk. She was thrown, belly-down onto the street, her hands held behind her.

NYPD Takes Excessive Force Way Too Far - Pinning Down Pregnant Woman

No one is safe anymore with these out of control Police Dept's. A pregnant woman should not be treated like that for she could loose the baby. I hope whoever was involved is FIRED!

I'm so disgusted with the training police are given today.......treating us all like we were the enemy. This so needs to stop.

Thanks you Susan for this petition. I'm most certainly going to forward this around.

Of course, all excessive force goes too far. That is what "excessive" means.

Signed. The damn NYPD is useless. From the commissioner down to the lowliest patrolman, to the office staff, they all need to be replaced. Now that they have a gun and a badge, their heads are too big for their heads and their pants are too small for all the overswelled things that need to fit into them. Let's see if we can find people who will do a good job and not let it go to their heads and other places.
