Punish officer Jared Wheeler for violently kicking a pregnant women!

Description:
"A police officer from Dekalb County, Ga. with a history of violent conduct kicked a heavily pregnant woman in the stomach in a recent incident that the officer’s superiors described as within department policy. The incident occurred when officer Jerad Wheeler was called to the pregnant woman’s home to settle a dispute involving the woman’s brother and his partner. When her brother began arguing with the officer, nine month pregnant Raven Dozier said that Wheeler pulled out a taser and used it on him. When Miss Dozier started crying and asking the officer why he was resorting to such actions, Wheeler kicked her in the stomach, arrested her and charged her with obstruction of a police officer. Thankfully, the child was not affected and was born healthy via an emergency C-section two weeks after the incident. The charges against Dozier were dropped. “What kind of a human being kicks a pregnant woman?” said Dozier’s attorney Mark Bullman. “I mean, forget whether or not it is a police officer that is supposedly protecting people.” In his incident report Wheeler claimed that he could not tell that Dozier was pregnant and that he kicked her out of self defense because she was acting aggressively. Wheeler described the kick as “a front push kick to the abdomen, as he was taught to do at the academy.”

      This is a disgusting abuse of authority. he needs to be out of a blue uniform and into an orange jumpsuit. He deserves to be locked up with his own kind - the rest of the violent criminals.

      Officer Wheeler needs to be removed from public service immediately and prosecuted for assault & battery, willful misconduct, and assault of an unborn child in the first degree. Please restore the trust, and provide the necessary resources for Raven and her child for future complications that might arise from your officer's actions. Violence against women is unacceptable.

      This officer has an obvious and blatant disregard for his own authority, and abuse of power. He needs to be removed from public service in any form. Kicking a pregnant women is not OK. Any civilian who did this would be charged with numerous violations including harm to an unborn child! He shot a chained dog when he responded to a wrong address over a complaint, and twisted the arm of a woman in her 50's. Unacceptable!!
