Pregnant woman killed by police
Jeanetta Riley, a pregnant homeless mother of three who suffered from emotional difficulties, was killed by police as she waved a knife outside a hospital in Sandpoint, Idaho. Seconds after their arrival, two police officers opened fire. Police say she refused their commands. Her death was ruled justifiable. Jeanetta’s family has not, so far, received even an apology. This case shows that no one is immune from police violence today. Is this the kind of society we want?
