A 25-year-old black woman named, Deja Stallings was handcuffed, kneeled on and ultimately arrested by Kansas City police officers while being nine months pregnant.
Protestors have been gathering outside of Kansas City's Town Hall furious about the arrest of this young mother and demand that the officer and police chief are fired.
Officers were trying to arrest a man at a gas station when they say Stallings tried to hinder the arrest. She allegedly grabbed and touched responding officers and was arrested for physically interfering with an arrest.
But the way the incident was handled has deepened a rift when the city is calling for unity to address violence.
