5 Arizona Police Officers on Leave for Flushing a Fetus Down the Toilet

Five police officers in Mesa, Arizona are on leave after allegedly flushing a miscarried fetus down the toilet. Officials say 4 of the officers responded to a call at a motel where a woman miscarried her 12 week old child. The officers called their supervisor and the boss apparently told them to flush the fetus instead of taking it to the hospital.

The prosecutor’s office in Maricopa County is considering criminal charges.
