Chicago Police Use Taser On 8-Month Pregnant Woman Over Parking Ticket Comment
Although we do not advocate using disabled parking spaces unless you are disabled we ask was the taser really the way to proceed here?
Tiffany Rent is eight-months pregnant, but that didn’t stop a Chicago police officer from using a taser on her. The assault and arrest occurred Wednesday morning outside of a drug store on Chicago’s South Side.
The Chicago Police Department Superintendent Garry McCarthy said that even though Rent was only a week or two away from giving birth, “you can’t always tell whether somebody is pregnant.”
Tiffany, however, said it should have been obvious.
