After the ticket is written the officer has handed her the ticket his job is over. It doesn't matter if she rips it up in front of him or when she gets home. Her address is listed so her refusal to appear would show up as a guilty plea. Therefore, even if she wasn't pregnant, the use of force isn't justified because no arrest could reasonably be made.

Who do you call for protection against the cops?

given. No justice system, people's justice. They can't be trusted until we weed out the baddies. If no order was illegally given and the officers made their own decision to terrorize the public then they will held accountable and the commanding officer will remain unscathed. Until we group up and show them WHO THE BOSS IS, it will continue. No matter how much bitching, or anything...go door to door, go to the PD, be fierce but not unnecessarily violent. But if they want to get violent show them what violence is. We are Americans. Act like it...obedient Chinese....

Gather the people. Show up at the PD in force. Confront the officers in question. Reiterate they are our and not their superior officer's instruments. Demand the name of the one who said they were allowed to do such a thing and have him exiled from the city or state, dependent on the people's wishes, especially those harmed by the order that was illegally

No excuses for such brutality. They could have sent the ticket in the mail.
