Things that make you go Hmmm: Pregnant woman Tasered by cops.
Miss Thing didn't do anything at all! She just (1) parked in a handicapped spot, (2) told the officer to fuck off when he confronted her about it, (3) tore up the ticket when he gave it to her, and (4) resisted arrest.
Things that make you go hmmmmâ€¦...
Remember when tasers were sold to us an alternative to shooting people? So apparently 15 years ago this woman would've been shot in the face.
Cops use them anytime someone annoys them
She sounds annoying as hell.
fat lady and a taser two bits.
Maybe she was bitchy, but what was cop thinking tasering a pregnant woman. It's not like he didn't have all her information.
Well, they were illegally parked.
I can't see a picture. Is she fat white trash?
maybe the kid will be born with the power to produce electrical rays, like an Xmen.
First of all sometimes you can't tell if a woman is pregnant especially if they are just fatties period. Second, you never tell a cop "you ain't arresting me" and then attempt to drive off. They have guns.
Stupid cunt. End of story.
Cops seriously will electrocute anyone for anything. Are they not trained to do anything else anymore?
A. I hate people who illegally park in handicapped spots. I live with someone disabled & the parking spot is not just for fun & games, it's because someone needs it. And that goes for all you people & the ones with baby strollers who decide to park yourselves on ramp. Idiots!
B. She looks fat not pregnant.
C. She was resisting arrest & fleeing the scene in a vehicle that she could have used to run him over.
I'm not sympathetic.
she looks pregnant.
I'm not sympathetic either. The cop did the right thing.
We would only care if she were famous and pretty.
I don't think she looks pregnant either. Just fat.
I would have tased her twice for good measure.
Women who are pregnant and people with implanted defibrillators should not resist arrest or do other illegal activities that may caused them to be tased.
Would she rather the cop had tackled her causing placenta abruptia or shot her?
This is not a woman who is concerned for her unborn baby's welfare.
She just wanted a cheap abortion.
Seriously? What petty, racist "cunts" many of you are. A) The woman does indeed look pregnant, not just fat. B) Even if she wasn't pregnant what kind of "asshole" would have such little judgement as to taser someone over a handicapped parking space?
All "the cop" had to do was run the tags to determine the vehicle owner, etc..and could have mailed the ticket and avoided confrontation. Granted, the woman shouldn't have torn up the ticket, etc., however, two wrongs don't make a right. People with poor judgement shouldn't be police officers. Period.. Hancuffs, tasering, breaking someone's arm over a damn parking space???
PUHLEEZE ...Chicago has much, much bigger problems/crimes to address than illegal parking..Seriously..
The problem R22 is she would have merely torn it up at home too. The woman has no respect for anyone or any rules.
No one has mentioned race except you.
No doubt bringing a productive citizen into this world
Finally somebody with common sense makes a post here.
Like 22 said, it's an excessive use of force to taser a person over a parking ticket when all he had to do was run the plates, the cop used poor judgement in this case and it will cost him and I say this as a person who defends a cops right to use lethal force when necessary, but again this is not the case here.
And yes the women was acting like a total cunt but she did not commit a serious crime necessitating the use of a taser.
Don't mess with authority.
Why the use of quotes around "the cop"? I'm pretty sure he was a police officer.
R23, it wouldn't be the first parking ticket that had gotten torn up at home, nor the last. You can't see the racism? Good for you. Try taking off those rose colored glasses your wearing and read between the lines. Anyway, the overreaction on the part of the officer far, far exceeds the crime. Case closed.
The law is you can use the taser when someone is fleeing the scene. She got in the car & was told to get out a couple of times.
She was aggressive with the officer & the father to be was also aggressive. Throwing the ticket in his face is considered an assault of an officer. Again, the use of taser can be used in that case.
A moving vehicle can be considered a weapon & when he tells her to stop she moves the gear shift instead, then he could consider himself in danger & she to be resisting arrest.
There's a Walgreen's video so it can be verified if the officer over reacted or not.
As for Chicago which recently again had 20 shooting incidents in one weekend, yes the officers are overtaxed over there. This woman, however, modeled the worse kind of behavior & lack of respect for an officer in front of her two kids.
What did she teach them? If an officer says stop don't, resist arrest & throw things at him. She just taught them how to get shot & killed. People like her are part of the problem in Chicago.
R29 is absolutely correct.
I'm black, pregnant and entitled, so deserving of the handicapped spot. Now me thinks I'm gonna be rich too. Did ya see how many sistas it took to get me out of the hospital? Plus baby daddys arm is dislocated, that should be a few extra bucks.
R29 is right. Don't swear at cops and toss ripped up tickets in their faces. It will only incite things.
You can tell from this video she is thinking only one thing: LAW SUIT TO GET CASH MONEY!
Gotta agree with r29.
Not what 29 posted at all R32.
As for racism, it seems pretty racist to assume that because she is a black woman, any criticism of her, or that she may not be without fault is racism posted by "cunts" seems pretty fucking racist of you and a generalisation, R22.
Would you infer that because she parked in a disabled bay that she is prejudiced to disabled people?
Oh, and for the record, I don't think the use of a taser is appropriate at all either.
REAL Things that make you go Hmmmmmm...
1- handicap parking permits are difficult to obtain, even if you are pregnant. Your Dr can give you a temp, but usually only for 3 days. For a pregnant lady, it's stupid to get one twice a week. However, fully able-bodied people who have "disabilities" can get them permanently as long as their Dr will "write them a note" and say they're disabled.
2&3- cops are not gods. They are our servants, theoretically, but now they control us. They can issue a ticket (or confiscate your phone, or impound your car, or enter your house, or frisk you on the subway, or....) for any reason, and most of them are bullshit. The growth of government power and the brutality of the police over the last 50+ years is not proof of causation, but it correlates strongly. Telling him to fuck off for being a total dick is not cause for him to assault her with...
4- a deadly weapon, especially as an obviously pregnant woman. Or even as a healthy young male. Tasers are implicated in hundreds of police deaths each year.
So, the cop was wrong, and the Frau you so obviously hate was right. The cop should lose his job and be put in prison.
If you did the same thing you would be in jail for a few decades.
Pregnant women are not handicapped or disabled. They don't need any special privileges.
Pregnancy is not a disability but pregnancy is also not easy on a woman's body especially the last month which is brutal if your carrying through summer, this woman had no right to park in a handicapped space since she didn't even have to get out of the car, she's just a lazy entitled slob but the real criminals here are the posters who are ok with her being tasered, she's carrying an almost full term baby in there who must have felt intense pain and fear when the mom was tasered, are you idiots so deluded that you can't see her baby suffered through this?
The lack of empathy here is ridiculous.
Chicagoan here and watching her on the news, 24 HOURS AFTER THIS INCIDENT, as she hobbled out of the police station being supported by people on both sides, it screamed "Thank God, I got a lawsuit on my hands!"
Spare me the pity party about Chicago PD, r29. They're one of the most corrupt departments in the nation. THis is the pd that over a span of two decades tortured blacks into confessions of crimes they didn't commit.
The people that can support the cops in this case are brainwashed fools. I hope she sues the city for $100M and wins. Bankrupt the corrupt motherfuckers.
Cops are thugs
Cops. Are. Thugs.
She's pregnant so she can park in the handicap space, or a least ought to be able to do so.
Being pregnant is NOT a handicap. You do not CHOOSE to be handicapped. Enough with the veneration because someone has a child in their stomach. And everyone's missing the point. If she hadn't broken the law by parking in the handicapped space, then followed it up by ripping up the ticket, and then screaming at the policeman, she wouldn't have been tasered. I say more power to the cop!
Okay so those defending the cop, it was a handicap spot. Not someone fleeing a bank robbery. One of the many problems today in society is that there is at times not enough consideration of the SPIRIT of the law and too much on the LETTER of the law. There was a time where police behaved like human beings as well as like enforcers. Also "back in the day" they understood when it was time to use which ever approach while doing their job.
I don't think it is acceptable for the woman to behave as she did but all the officer had to do was take down her license plate and mail her the tickets. Then it's her problem as opposed to the precincts public relations problem.
Dear r49 handicapped does not only refer to those who are permanently damaged. Sometimes you are on crutches or have had surgery or maybe even are very pregnant. It is the doctor that authorizes those placards not the city. My 85 year old mother has one, she got one from her doctor. She has a slight limp but otherwise there is nothing wrong with her other than being 85 and not wanting to have to walk a mile to get into the store and then back to her car.
How many doctors hand out handicapped placards to pregnant women?
OK, so she was an arrogant annoying bitch, but the cop was totally in the wrong.
I knew it was a sista!
The cop reacted accordingly
Do you want bitches like this free to break any any law?
Think what she will if she faces no consequence
Not a druggie or thug
Still...tasering is a little excessive, right?
You fucking psychos. Tasering a pregnant woman is dangerous and likely painful to her fetus. It is not a sane thing to do unless in self defense. You probably think it will teach the fetus not to be a spoiled brat, right? Psychos.
Is it rabid misogyny day? Why do so many Republicans post on data lounge?
You all realize the woman hadn't stepped out of her car and was pounding the officer with her fists through the window from the driver's side. She wouldn't calm down and it is very often hard to tell if someone is pregnant when seated in a car and being of a large size. Again, I will say, the woman brought this on herself. It's really simple. Follow the law, when caught breaking the law, admit it, don't fight it, and you won't have a problem.
Oh, and it's easy to cry misogyny but not everything is against WOMEN. This is against law-breakers.
So he tasered her even though she hadn't stepped out of the car? He couldn't step away?
She deserved it. END.OF.STORY.
Cops. Are. Thugs. With. Guns.
Who are you people who think it's acceptable for a police officer to use excessive force for someone parked in a HANDICAPPED PARKING SPOT????? And do you think she may have been over reacting and ripping up the ticket because of her hormones raging due to PREGNANCY????? You fucking assholes just don't fucking get it, do you? You think cops are going to treat you any differently when they find you cruising trade in the park? Huh fuckwads? Think it's ok to be tasered then? Fucking Stockholm Syndrome Uncle Tom gay people who would lick the boot of a jack booted Nazi if they thought it might mean an extra cracker in the concentration camp dining hall. Assholes.
Google lewrockwell.com or economicpolicyjournal.com and you will begin to see the reason libertarians oppose the wars in Iraq (and Afghanistan, and Syria, and Mali, et al!) and oppose the drug wars, and the attacks on civil liberties in the USA, and the bank bailouts, and the subsidies to big corporations, etc.
Once you understand the economics of freedom, the rest fall into place. Good luck.
R66 is the tasered women, right here on DL. It explains the rage and hysteria.
Being pregnant does NOT give a woman carte-blanche to act like a violent, out-of-control lunatic. If you can't be pregnant without behaving like a mindless animal then Don't. Fucking. Get. Pregnant. And no, I don't give a flying fuck about her human larva (she certainly didn't), so don't even try to bring that up.
Funny how the Idiot Libertarian Troll(TM) always bulk posts at 4AM. All that crystal-meth fueled freedom needing to be expressed, I guess.
But, but, but, SHE'S A WOMAN!! And a MOMMMMM!!
HOW COULD THIS BE ALLOWED TO HAPPEN!?!?
You don't hold WOMEN and MOMS to common legal standards! This is misogyny!
Could this cop show up at my local Whole Foods this Saturday? The suburban fraus seem to believe having children under 5 is a legal handicap.
This past weekend my partner and I were having breakfast at a local diner frequented by LEOs. My partner made the comment, "Most of these cops look like they belong in the BACK seat of a cop car." He was right. They looked like thugs.
There is little difference between cops and robbers. The main difference is that most cops wear costumes.
Check out this big fat bitch get a shock up her ass.
I'm not sure if she looks pregnant or fat. Still, they tasered a pregnant woman and there's gonna be hell to pay.
Dat why u gay! Dat why u gay!
actually, youtube has tons of good videos like this. Use the following to search:
Fucked up neighbor
You can figure more out.
Mommie! Mommie! Wake up Wake up!!
This girl wasn't leaving until the lesbian agreed to fight her. Well she got what she wished for LOL.
black women are the worst. Any animal can breed, it takes a human to mother. Those thangs in 73's link are subhuman. Their children are beyond help also. Then the baby daddy comes out from whatever crevice he was snorting in and acts like "wut up".
Didn't the pregnant woman try to drive away in addition to tossing the ticket, yelling at the cop?
She looked fat not pregnant. Her momma could pass for pregnant also.
Think of this ghetto rat when your 85 year old mother/father/grandmother has to drive around the parking lot or take a long, exhausting walk from the end of a parking lot because some entitled cow and others like her/him are in the handicap spot, while their baby daddy is in the store, buying booze.
The coach in this fight is what puts it over the top
