Dekalb County Police: it’s within policy for our officers to kick pregnant women in the stomach

(Rob Beschizza)   When Dekalb County, Ga., police officer Jerad Wheeler tased her brother, Raven Dozie started crying and demanding to know why. Wheeler kicked the heavily-pregnant woman in the stomach. While he is now under criminal investigation, his superiors on the force squelched an internal affairs complaint and explicitly approve of his conduct.

“What kind of a human being kicks a pregnant woman? I mean, forget whether or not it is a police officer that is supposedly protecting people,” Dozier’s attorney Mark Bullman said. Dozier filed a complaint with the DeKalb police department’s internal affairs unit, but it was never investigated. Instead, four supervisors and an internal affairs detective signed off that Wheeler’s use of force met policy. … Fleischer filed an open records request and found two more use-of-force complaints against Wheeler within the last nine months. In all three cases, the victims were not the focus of the original police incident.

Wheeler was accused of twisting a 53 year-old woman’s arm in 2011. This January, he shot a family’s chained dog after showing up at the wrong home on a call.
