Chicago cops Taser 8-month pregnant woman for parking violation

truther June 9, 2012 7


The superintendent of the Chicago Police Department says that the reason one of his officers used a Taser stun gun on a woman days away from giving birth because “you can’t always tell whether somebody is pregnant.”

At eight-months pregnant, Tiffany Rent says she would think officers would have been aware of her condition before they assaulted and arrested her on Wednesday morning outside a South Side drug store.

“I was standing at the squad car close enough for him to see that I was pregnant,” Rent tells the Chicago Tribune.

The department says nothing was wrong with the ways officers acted, though. According to the police report, Rent “attempted to take off” after being ticketed for parking her car in a space reserved for handicap persons outside of a Chicago Walgreens when she was subjected to an electric pulse from a Taser gun. The maximum fine for using a handicap parking space without authorization in Chicago is $350.

Moments earlier, Rent tore up the citation and said, “I ain’t giving you (expletive),” according to the official report. That, apparently, was enough for cops to use force.

Chicago Police Supt. Garry McCarthy says he believes that it isn’t always possible to determine if a suspect is or isn’t pregnant so in the end it’s matter of upholding the law.

“Well, first of all, you can’t always tell whether somebody is pregnant. So, you want to use it where you are overcoming assault or preventing escape. That’s what it boils down to,” Supt. McCarthy tells the Tribune.

To do as much, Rent was shocked by the Taser, then dragged out of her car, forced to the ground and handcuffed — in front of two of her young children and her boyfriend. Joseph Hobbs, the father of the child, suffered a dislocated elbow and was also arrested by police for trying to intervene. Sharita Rent, Tiffany’s sister, tells the Tribune that some officers on the scene reportedly made “nasty, cruel comments” and suggested to the expectant parents that they “call Jesse Jackson.”

“How could you be that cruel to a human being? A pregnant human being?” asks the sister.

Later Wednesday, a nursing supervisor at the Roseland Community Hospital ran tests on Rent and said her unborn child appeared to be in good health, but the expectant mother still has concerns — she has lost two children during pregnancy before.

“That policy has been in effect for quite some time,” McCarthy adds. “Whether or not the policy has been adhered to is going to be examined separately from the investigation into the use of force. So we’ll keep you posted on that, and we’ll see how it plays out.”

The latest incident follows an episode earlier this year in Dekalb County, Georgia where Officer Jerad Wheeler was accused of kicking a woman nine months pregnant, prompting her to receive emergency surgery.

    it is sad that you have reached the level of being human beings, and now you have chosen to regress backwards away from the next step in evolution-to become angels-who live in heaven with God-at least heaven will not be crowded. Those who harm, destroy and act in cruel ways are regressing devolving backwards-away from love and God they are the opposite of angelic creatures-they are satanic and demonic-in the image of satan-the human race for the most part are becoming sociopaths.
    to evolve forward-you must have your consciousness in the frontal lobe-right side-the soul resides there.
    The sociopaths-have their consciousness in the reptoid/reptilian portion of the brain.
    You can google those.
    Someone is destroying the frontal lobes the souls of humans-but only you can choose to go to the reptoid side-the soul is immortal-it can’t be destroyed.
    You can’t sell your soul to satan-he does not value or want your soul.
    He wants your soul to leave your body-he wants your body-he wants your consciousness to be in the reptoid mind
    that is the purpose of satanism/freemasonry
    There is no occult magic-it is a total lie a sham.
    there is only satanic ritual=harming babies and women or anyone more weak and helpless than yourself.-then you are no longer connected to God-or the soul you once had-you belong to satan=the reptoid brain-a sociopaths-no ability to love.
    The more evolved one is the more they are able to love those more weak and helpless.
    Everything these police do wether they know it or not, everything the soldiers do-on orders:
    is a satanic ritual designed to give their bodies to satan-he wants your bodies-soulless bodies-
    every evil you do produces a demon in you-just like you when you did that evil-only more evil, more devolved-and it will continue.
    You are all so stupid-I don’t even know why I explain anything to you complete morons.
    Evil is destruction of life.
    Good is the protection and betterment of life.
    You are all evil-you will all lose your connection with God and your souls because you have no idea what love is. No idea what evolution forward is.
    You will never be angels. You are all total shit.
    Those you think are so nobel and good like the police and soldiers are pure evil.
    brainwashed enough by the entertainment industry are you???
    They will kill you-they will torture you and eat your babies-after they sexually molest and rape them-they belong to satan-they do it all the time-that is freemasonry.
    You have only yourselves to blame-your government is satanic-capitalism is satanism
    What the hopi indians had was the correct way to live-as true equals-they were communists
    Russia and china were communist in name only-they were as capitalist and satanic as america and run by the same people: Rockefeller/who is satan on earth and his second in command the Rothschilds-these evil monsters rape and eat babies
    what they do for fun to children is worse than any horror movie.
    These tasaring reptoid brained police will keep devolving into the same horrible monsters eventually.

    Somehow this officer who is guilty of using taser on a 8 month pregnant lady actually does not know how to respect a would be mother, as his own mother probably was treated like a female dog (B) by his father. So, probably this A’hoe was on a vendetta spree. Give him the benefit of doubt and forgive him as he may be mentally retarded, as he is in the police department. She tore the ticket, so what. She did not tear this D’head’s marriage certificate. She would be in further violation if she does not pay the fine. So let her deal with the courts and defend her actions. Who is this MdrFkr to use physical force and deadly taser force. He should be charged for attemted murder and wilful bodily harm trying to inflict damaging effect to the undefended baby in the womb. This menatlly corrupt & power corrupt animal must be removed from the streets before he commits unrepairable crime.

    Eight months pregnant? Oh yes you most certainly can tell when a woman is pregnant that far along. Sure the woman technically transgressed the rule against using a restricted parking space but she did not break the spirit of the rule as she was in need of some relief as a pregnant woman nearing her date. All the policeman had to do was ask her why she parked there and observe her response. The spirit of the law is as important as the letter.

    The Chicago Police Department is notorious for their criminal activities.They are brutal pathological liars….but as the old saying goes the fish rots from the head down. They are arrogant,rude and contemptuous of the public they purportedly “protect and serve.”Many stores, in the past, have allowed pregnant women in the late stages of their pregnancies to use the close parking spaces as a courtesy.But courtesy is a word completely foreign to this group of neanderthals.

    The cops in chicago is nothing but a bunch of pyschopathic morons, when they are standing by watching a pyschopathic cop kicking a pregnant woman and police supt. Garry Mcarthy saying it is okay to use force,because an eight month pregnant woman tore up a ticket in front of the police officer, it shows the chicago police supt. isn’t any better.
