Kansas City Police Force Pregnant Woman of Color to Lie on Asphalt

Okay, so first there was Texas. Now it looks like Missouri will be second on my list of states to avoid like the plague. It seems that those lovable guys on the police force have, for the second time this year, decided to harassed and mistreated a pregnant woman of color. Yvette Hayes was forced to lie on the asphalt next to a highway on her stomach even after she told them that she was five months pregnant.
