Chicago Cops Taser 8-month Pregnant Woman for Parking Violation

June 8, 2012

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.
