When I read about this and the horrible Kelly Thomas case in Fullerton, CA, I wonder what’s going on? The number of police incidents like this seems to be on the rise.
If the cops will not fire these guys, men from the town need to do the same to these cops. In the navy we called it a blanket party.
Pretty clear case of a Tazer used to torture a suspect into compliance. She was not attacking the cops. I suspect with a good lawyer, she will own next years new cop cars.
In the least, all three should be fired, immediately, with out pay, or retirement. If they will torture a pregnant driver over a traffic ticket, how many have they killed over money?
Two big, bad, authoritian cops have to taser a pregnant woman because they’re afraid she might kick their asses.
As I recall when my wife was pregnant, this kind of behavior is only legal after the 8 1/2 month of pregnancy.
Gee, I just can’t understand why so many people hate the pigs.
Comply or fly (and possibly die)!
Wonder if her kid made it to school on time.
Sorry Folks, I’m slit down the middle on this one.
I’m sick and tired of momma’s flying past me in the school zones.
call me a sexist...
but I need to see how pretty mrs Brookes is before I decide how innocent she is.
Good thing, the family wasn’t along for the ride.
This society wants to prevent crime and solve all crimes, giving the cops way too much power. They become much more tempted in using those powers and surveillance equipment to rape good people than going after the perps - with whom sometimes they befriend, by the way.
We should carry our own guns, shoot in self defense, talk to people, slow down on automatic signatures, and that would be that.
Ridiculous. Give her the damn ticket and send her on her way. Signature is a formality. These cops are just assholes. Send them to prison.
They need to take the tasers away from all cops. Period. And make them go through customer service training BEFORE this shit happens.
If they treat people like customers instead of enemies, all this shit goes away.
Therefore Barney Fife was obviously a democrat..
Lets see Seattle a mostly democrat Police Department..
WHAT COULD GO WRONG?..
** and probably fire department as well..
The cops should have offered her free Skittles, she would have come flying out of her car.
Apparently she was obnoxious and wouldn't listen to reason to sign the stupid citation. She was guilty of speeding near a school which endangered the children. And to top it off, she wasted valuable taxpayer's resources by playing the pregnancy card.
Obviously, this woman cared about nobody but herself.
Police use of force threads always bring out the thermo-nuclear stupid here on FR.
It you get cited for a moving violation then you must sign the citation. It is a promise to appear later in court and nothing more. If you don’t promise to appear (by signing) then you get arrested and must post bail to guarantee your later appearance. These are simple, straightforward facts that we all know.
A pregnant woman! WTF are these morons thinking? Are they so steroided they can’t reason? This crap has got to stop. The cops have become the enemy.
Do everything you can to avoid interaction with them. They are the enemy!
The cops were stupid.
She’s pregnant and needed a restroom.
All they had to do was reach in the car and pull the keys.
Then the nature call would have solved their problem.
The insurance companies will gladly take the premiums the LE agencies provide to insure against the claims arrising from their questioanable behavior.
The citizen-taxpayers should explore means to control their LE agencies.
Fullerton is not far from Huntington Beach, where the police shot to death a 18 year old girl, on a park ground because she held a knife.
My mind says trained officers need much better training and weapon options.
These incidents repeatedly show bad judgement by officers, and resort to shootings.
There are times that call for shootings, but not every one.
The city’s insurance settled for $40 million for the girl.
