Chicago police showed more terrible and horrible judgement after using a teargas on a woman in her eighth month pregnancy. She was taken to a Hospital where a nursing supervisor said the baby appeared to be kicking alright. The woman was treated and released.
The victim, 30-year-old Tiffany Rent, has already lost three babies and now after getting teargas and violently pulled from her vehicle, she’s about to undergo more tests.
Cops approached Tiffany Rent and attempted to give her a ticket for parking in a handicapped spot at a local Walgreens. Incensed, Rent tore up the ticket and threw it on the ground and then according to untruthful police, she attempted to drive away, that made officer used a Teargas on Tiffany Rent, pulled her out of the car, down to the ground hard and took her into custody. Rent maintains she informed cops that she was pregnant during the entire incident.
Cops are now trying to say the officer who used the Teargas on Rent, did not know she was pregnant. Apparently a female officer at the scene finally noticed Rent was pregnant and suggested she should be taken to a hospital for evaluation.
Rent says as she lay there on the ground she remembered cops standing around her cracking jokes. Joseph Hobbs, also got arrested when he tried to defend Rent from rouge cops. He somehow suffered a dislocated elbow during the arrest.
Rent’s little ones, 9-year-old son and 3-year-old daughter, got to witness all this mess and were even left unattended in the car for an extended period of time, along with their mother’s purse.
However some good news is still there from the video surveillance of the incident available from the Walgreens. Checks of the videotapes. The proof of the pudding is in the eating, said the infuriated Tiffany Rent.
