A woman apparently lost a fetus estimated to be 12 to 14 weeks old, and about four inches in length. There was a decided lack of humanity in the matter. Despite the fact that both Mesa fire and police were present in the motel room, somehow — and get this, after contacting police supervisors and fire personnel — a decision was made by an officer or officers to flush the fetus down the toilet.
This was revealed by Mesa Police Chief George Gascon (pictured) in a press conference. Worse, one of the officers involved in that incident, Nicholas Webster, is also under investigation for excessive force, clearly detailed on a booking area camera.
Others involved and placed on administrative leave in the fetus incident are officer Glenn Pearson, the lead officer in the case, officer Kristen Johnson, officer Robert Buquo, and Lt. Lynn Young.
“We will fully and completely investigate these incidents. Right now, we are going on very little information. I am just finding out about this myself.”Watch a video report:
