    Good - the officer was able to stop a deadly attack against him.

    Bad - that an innocent fetus also had to die.

    I guess her primary concern was not the baby.

    Sounds like a good shoot. Not sure what the deceased being pregnant had to do with anything.

    Some believe that the unborn child was a live person and was killed due to the mother's irresponsible/criminal behavior.

    If as reported ...

    If'n you don't want to be stopped in the attempt, then don't attempt to kill another.

    True but I do not see how this fact would or should influence the facts in the case. Put it in the story along with other facts yes, but putting it into the title of the story seems to me like they are trying to influence the readers opinion as to whether or not the officer should have shot her.

    Its a way to bring emotions into play. I see stories all the time that start out with "mother of three" gunned down, hit by drunk driver or whatever. I can't recall ever seeing similar headlines when a father of three is involved. It is an attempt to replace rational thinking with emotional feelings.

    It's tragic for the baby but lets face it, with those 2 for parents the poor little thing didn't have a chance anyway.

    I could tell you some hair raising stories about drug abuse and pregnancy from my job. The article doesn't say if drugs were involved or not but given that they both have several priors, I bet there were.

    Glad the police officer wasn't hurt.

    Yes and no. It's obviously an attempt to personalize the victim, but at the same time, for those who believe the unborn child was a live person, they represent another "victim" of the incident. To those, the headline could have read "Cop fatally shoots mother and daughter/son as mother tries running him over with her car".

    Cop did the right thing. Mom got what was coming to her. The child was the innocent victim in my opinion.

    The officer didn't create this situation the PREGNANT WOMAN did. He did exactly was he was trained to do!!!! The officer is the victim also. The media loves to give their stories these dramatic headlines just to make it sound interesting. But when the day is over he did his job and God had his hands all around him protecting him at that moment and even right now. God is good all the time. And we all must remember that our God is bigger than anything we will ever have to go through! I am so glad to hear all the supportive comments on this site!!!

    It was simply mentioned in the rest of the story with other facts. It's put into the title to grab readers' attention. Simple tactic to get views.

    Good shoot in my opinion. Just like Jeanlouise said, sad as it is, it's probably best that the child didn't get to live and be raised by those two.

    I agree on both counts. Often, the headline is created to 'sell' the story and also to promote an agenda. In this case, it seems that the headline writer wants our first reaction to be "Omigod, how could an evil cop kill a pregnant woman!?!"
