Court Says: “Go Ahead Taser Pregnant Women!”

From King 5 news in Seattle:


“A federal appeals court says three Seattle police officers were justified when they used a stun gun on a pregnant mother who refused to sign a traffic ticket.


Malaika Brooks was driving her son to school in 2004 when she was stopped for doing 32 mph in a school zone. Rather than give her the ticket and let her go on her way, the officers arrested her. They used a Taser three times when she refused to get out of her car.”

****

Needless to say, this isn’t good news.
