    SPRINGFIELD, Ill. - A woman 8 months pregnant was tased by Springfield police after she reported a car accident in the parking lot of Best Buy on Saturday.

    The woman in question is 29-year-old Lucinda White. Her boyfriend, 31-year-old Frederic Thomas was also tased and taken to jail for assaulting a police officer.

    Was it excessive force, tasing the pregnant woman, or did Springfield police act accordingly?

    Thomas and White were released from the Sangamon County Jail on Sunday evening.

    I suppose a woman's pregnancy makes her incapable of harming a Cop??... Lets hope for society's sake that the electricity causes a miscarriage...

    It does make her incapable of laying face down with hands behind her back.

    What did they do to get the police involved in the first place? They must have done something.

    That doesn't look good but howzabout you behave yourself so you aren't in the situation in the first place?. The tasering doesn't seem justified from what I can see but it's not a great video and I'm watching it on my phone. Cop seems like a spaz.

    Our policy is no tasering of very young/old or pregnant. You can't always tell if the fatties are pregnant tho.

    What happened before that took place though? It looks like they both deserved what they got. How did they get in that situation from just reporting a car accident? :wtf:

    That's always the problem with these videos......getting the whole story. That cop has to learn to keep his cool a bit better regardless. It's amazing how when you "lose it" even if you are right you look wrong. If you appear calm and keep a somewhat even tone it can go a long way to getting the public on your side or at the very least to understand why you did what you did. The screaming just conveys panic an uncertainty IMO.
