Chicago Cops Taser 8-Months-Pregnant Woman During Parking Dispute [View all]

Police in Chicago on Tuesday used a Taser on a women who is eight months pregnant over a dispute that occurred after she parked in a handicapped space.

Tiffany Rent pulled into the handicapped space at a Walgreens because she was trying to console her young daughter, Rent’s sister, Sharita Rent, told CBS Chicago.

“She tried to explain to them what happened, as far as her little getting out of the car, and her trying to calm her down and console her, and the guy gave her a ticket for $200. She ripped the ticket up and threw it on the ground.”

The sister also claimed that police hurled insults at Rent.

“They all made little nasty, cruel comments – one guy said, ‘Does she have a hernia or something,’ and the other one told her to call Jesse Jackson. Another one said that she deserved it,” Sharita Rent said. “And I’m thinking, how cruel is that? How could you be that cruel to a human being? A pregnant human being?”
