And then gave the driver a ticket for child-endangerment!

/ I've always felt that you're either gonna make it or not; but, speeding and crazy driving puts you, your family and everyone else on the road at risk.

// maybe; and I know this is crazy, but, if you are going to be in that particular situation; maybe you should pack a go bag and keep it in your car or something?

This police officer helped a family in distress instead or deploying his taser and pepper spray then handcuffing them before figuring out what was happening? I sure hope he doesn't lose his job over this incident.

Once upon a time police weren't almost completely adversarial and were known for being helpful. I miss those days.

If by "helping", subby meant "not interfering with", then the headline is perfectly accurate.

At least, the text of that article does not say anything about the officer actually helping. Can't watch the video. :-/

AverageAmericanGuy: Are you suggesting that prepared and responsible parents that don't wait until the baby is crowning before heading to the hospital don't make good parents?


Here's a thought experiment, Guy: predict the duration of labor for any pregnant woman, down to the 10-minute resolution.  Show your work.

Best of luck.  Oh, and don't say "when the water breaks."  My first child was born 22 hours after membranes first started rupturing.  My second was born 90 seconds after the water broke.

hardinparamedic: fainted on his OB clinical when he saw what a baby head does to an un-episostomised vagina.


Episiotomies  are pretty awful themselves, and in general seriously over-used and unnecessary.  All the things I saw during the three births of my kids, the episiotomy was the only thing that made me ill, and just thinking about it to this day still makes me queasy.

i'd be so proud to drive a chevette. piece of history, right there. american auto engineering trying to emulate japanese auto engineering and coming out with something that looks like a 70's euro-coupe on steroids? oh heck yeah.


Okay, I stand corrected.  I had no idea that 12 hp bubbles that remind the driver that someday he might be able to afford a volkswagon rabbit were so insanely cool.

Thanks for the education.

Maybe if these people had the ability to think ahead the woman wouldn't have gotten pregnant in the first place.

iheartscotch: hardinparamedic: SpdrJay: I know this isn't a real story because the cop didn't taser their baby and shoot their dog

All dogs deserve to die. Their mongrel race is a stain on the world, and the glorious feline master race which should rightfully inhabit it!

Vermoosen de pooches ausbrautten!

Okay, it's not 'hero' level, but I'd like to thank the cop who stopped when I waved him down tonight.  My car lost power about a half a block from my friend's house after a jump start.  I was sitting at a light, and then, nothing.  With no power I had no hazards on a fairly dark street.  I jumped out and was hustling to my friends house (I don't have a cell phone- and my car is an '87, being broke sucks) but the cop was the first car by and he parked behind me to keep anyone from rear-ending my car while I got my friend.  He then helped me push the car into a parking space.  He didn't deliver a baby, but thanks anyway.

(When I called AAA the guy on the other end let out some sort of strange hiccup/laugh/wow when he asked me for the make/model/year and I told him it was an '87.  He saw it on the screen but just assumed it was old information.  Usually, it's pretty reliable.)

A woman gave birth in a hospital elevator. "Don't feel so bad," the attending nurse said sympathetically. "Last year, a woman gave birth on the front lawn of the hospital."
The woman burst into tears. "Yes," she cried. "That was me!"
