Police Officer Tasers Pregnant Woman in Springfield, IL

Submitted by a reader

This happened yesterday, April 3rd, in a Best Buy parking lot in Springfield , Illinois. This is clear police brutality on an unarmed pregnant African American woman. I believe that this is not only a race issue, but an issue of child abuse, and unprovoked coercion on the part of this Springfield police man.

Though I don’t live in Springfield anymore, I know how this city works. This will be in the news for a day or two and then fade away. The officer will probably get away with a mere slap on the wrist. Please help make this a national story so that there can be awareness drawn to the unlawful activity of police not only in Springfield, IL, but all around the US.
