Abortion by taser

Woman claims she miscarried after being manhandled and Tasered by police officers

And her crime was what? Note how brave these thugs were in bolded section:

Quote:An Illinois woman who was arrested two months into her pregnancy filed a lawsuit claiming that police officers Tasered her and used force so excessive that she ended up losing her baby.

According to the suit filed on Thursday, in October of 2011, Cook County resident Cherese Morris was walking down a street while talking on her cell phone when three officers from the Robbins Police Department approached her, knocked the device out of her hand and arrested her for no apparent reason.

As officers handcuffed the woman with her hands behind her back, one of Morris' shoulder 'popped,' causing her to scream out in agony several times, the suit states. Instead of loosening the restraints, the officers then threw Morris face down into the back of the squad car and shocked her with a Taser several times, according to the filing cited by the Chicago Sun-Times.

As a result, the pregnant woman's body stiffened to such a degree that she ended up knocking a window out of the patrol car before passing out.


Morris was charged with battery, criminal damage to property and resisting arrest, but prosecutors decide not to pursue the two first charges, and the latter counts while eventually dismissed.

Two weeks after the arrest, lawsuit claims that Morris had a miscarriage and lost her child.

The Daily Mail reached out to the Robbins Police Department on Friday, but Police Chief Holmes was not immidiatly available for comment.

According to Morris' lawsuit, the woman attempted to file a complaint with the department in August, but was told the officers involved in her arrest were no longer there, and the statute of limitations for filing her grivances had expired.

The eight-count lawsuit, which seeks unspecified damages for use of excessive force and civil rights violations, also names Chief Holmes.

According to Morris and her attorney the police chef was negligent because his officers were poorly trained and supervised.

Sorry, I'm having a problem with this and I'm not sure that it's with the cops. She waited a year to file suit about something that supposedly happened two weeks AFTER she was arrested? There is a funny smell to this and I'm pretty sure it ain't fish. This is someone shooting for the police lottery winning numbers.

Would be nice to have all the facts or at least some of them before passing judgement on what happened.

The one year delay makes it sound like BS, but if true as she says--arrested for no reason--they should be put down like dogs.

I agree that something smells here...

First, if she was combative, I can understand not undoing the restraints... just because someone says it hurts doesn't mean it does. Just because she said she didn't do anything doesn't mean she didn't. Certainly sometimes the person is innocent and in pain, but other times they are making it up...

I also find it unusual - but not really suspicious - that the lawsuit took a year to file. Sometimes people need time to heal (in this case deal with the trauma of a miscarriage) and decide what to do. Add to this the time needed to find a lawyer and gather the resources needed to sue and I can easily see it taking a year - if not more - to file a law suit.

This being said, if the arrest was false and the woman appeared pregnant - which she may not have - then I hope she wins.

I don't need any details, as i am fundamentally opposed to the use of tazers by police personnel -at all- ...so it makes it simple to condemn every story i see with no additional thought whatsoever.

Cops should not have tazers. Period.

Just curious... why such a strong stance on this?
