BRONX: Pregnant Woman Tasered In Apartment After Police Attempt To Restrain Her

17-Year-Old Pregnant Girl Tasered By Police

BRONX, NEW YORK (February 25, 2017) – A 17-year-old pregnant girl at an apartment in the Bronx was violently tasered by police as they were trying to arrest her, according to the Gothamist.

Dailene Rosario has been identified as the girl that was tasered by police. The whole incident was captured on a cellphone. It shows the victim screaming out that she is pregnant.

The NYPD has increased their purchase of tasers in recent years. The New York Times Reported last year that past restrictions about how many times an officer may use their taser have been lifted.

The NYPD has said that it is conducting an internal review about what happened. However, there is no indication that any of the officers involved in the tasering will face disciplinary action.

I Chose The Right Attorney - “Attentive, Professional and Know About the Law…”

I referred Rosenberg, Minc, Falkoff & Wolff to a friend needing help with a birth injury & medical malpractice case. Having worked with founding partner Daniel Minc myself on a car accident case, I was sure they would be able to deliver results.
