Pregnant Mother tackled by cops

A Jacksonville, Florida mother has been given a green light to sue local police after they first tackled her and then arrested her for running a red light on her way to the ER. She was in premature labor.

When Melanie Williams, then seven months pregnant, started bleeding and feeling faint, she called 911 and asked for help. That call was lost, so Williams hopped in her car and sped off to the hospital. On her way, she ran a red light.

Police pulled her over, but Williams told them that she was sick and took off. They chased her, ultimately tackling her (according to her sister) inside the ER while she screamed, “I’m pregnant. Someone help me. I am bleeding.” They then took her back outside to a squad car, where she was ultimately saved by an ER nurse who saw that she was in medical distress and insisted she be brought back inside.

I feel bad for the mother here.  But to be sure, she was breaking the law.  And I’m not talking about running a red light, I do that all the time, especially on college campuses.  I’m saying, why let the kid out 2 months early?  My mom told me that she felt maternity pains after 10 months, but she ignored them because she wanted me in there to “cook longer”.  And look how I turned out, I’m a genius.
