I don't know who you are talking about, other then the second cop, and maybe the doctor. The first cop, the perp, and the mother all acted how they should. And the doctor I think just wasn't sure what was going on, hence why he didn't react any differently. As for the second cop going to turn on the lights, yes, that was a pretty stupid movie. But I take it that he was a younger rookie cop who didn't know how to handle the situation, so he reacted badly. There are a lot of real life cops who do more stupid things in crisis's. Either way, it didn't really take me out of the film, and I was still rooting for Spoiler the pregnant woman to survive.
