Posted on 02/10/2012 11:06:23 AM PST by Daffynition
The Kendall County Sheriff's Department has launched an internal investigation into an alleged incident involving an off-duty deputy pulling a gun on a pregnant woman in a Walmart express lane.
Just one week from her due date, Nicole Thurmond said she feared for her life while checking out at a Walmart store in Oswego on a recent Sunday.
"I felt someone close behind me. He started being really rude and said, 'Don't you know how to count? You are holding up the whole store," Thurmond recalled.
Thurmond said she didn't know it at the time, but the man in plain clothes was off-duty deputy Craig French.

Do you know what you’re talking about? Cause I sure dont.
“Gross Stupidity” “Sarcasm” ????????
I said.... the deputy over reacted and is now in trouble. What part of that do you disagree with?
Geez. Or if there was something else you couldn’t understand, let me know what it was, and I’ll be happy to explain it to you.
On second thought, just keep your igorance to yourself.
Stupid headline. There was one and not two pregnant women in the situation.
“these two idiots (with more than 20 items)” - How many items did they have? How do you know?
“The article also alluded to the idea the couple was on welfare.” - BS. The stupid cop asked them if they were on welfare. Were they?
“The entitlement mentality that idiots have that allows them to cut in line” What entitlement mentality other than the POS cop's?
“Unfortunately for this poor off-duty deputy, he over reacted and is now in trouble.” Unfortunately?? The idiot pulled a gun.
“Poor off-duty deputy” this asswipe should be out of a job and in a jail.
Checkout Line JBT ping. Cop pulls gun on pregnant woman, arrests husband who is trying to defend her.
Maybe the JBT had some donuts in his cart?
Needed them faster?
Poor off duty deputy? This guy pulled a gun in public, in a store full of people...For what?
For a minor squabble at the checkout, the husband sees his pregnant wife is upset, sees a person who turns out to be a deputy whom he alleged "was in her face, yelling at her, in an aggressive manner, he steps toward him and the husband pushes back to keep him away"
The term, "Overreacting" would be the glaring understatement of the month.
I note the citizen is facing charges for pushing the off-duty officer.
When are they ever considered just another citizen behaving as a goon?
Some animals are more equal than others I guess.
"Make me wait in line while you get eggs? I'll protect and serve your a$$ to death." The blue gangster shoulda worn his 'colors' so people would know there was a PSYCHOPATH in line.
I'd love to do a poll...if it was a Crip in line in back of this lady, would she have gotten more courtesy, or less? ;^)
Well, I know what the stupid headline was about, i.e., political correctness. Referring to a “pregnant couple” is just plain ridiculous; the couple can be said to be “expecting”, but it is only the woman who is pregnant.
OTOH, in the pic, he looks closer to term than she does. (Oooh, not nice, Bigg Red. Lots of men gain a few pounds when the wife is expecting.)
“identifying himself as an LEO”
Wouldn’t matter to me. Abuse my wife, pull a gun, and watch your brains splatter.
"So the question you're asking is - are there 20 or 21 items in my cart? Well, to tell you the truth, in all the excitement I've kind of lost count. So the question you really should be asking is 'Do I feel lucky'?
"Well... do ya, punk?"
