Maryland Cop Tasers Woman over Transit Fare after she tells him she is Pregnant

A video uploaded to Facebook last week shows a police officer on the light rail in Baltimore manhandling a woman he suspected of not having the proper transit pass.

The officer is grabbing onto the woman in an attempt to arrest her as she keeps telling him to let her go.

He then tasers her and she falls to the floor where he then drags her off the transit car where he tries for several minutes to handcuff her.

It was only after several more cops came running up that they were finally able to handcuff her which is when the video ends.

The original video has been shared more than 2,500 times on Facebook with an overwhelming number of commenters criticizing police for their overly aggressive tactics.

It was only in December 2018 that Washington DC decriminalized fare evasion to a civil infraction because enforcement of those laws tended to focus on black people.

But in Maryland it is considered a misdemeanor punishable by up to 90 days in jail. The fare for a one-way trip on the Baltimore light rail system is $1.80, which will increase to $1.90 on June 23.

It will cost the state much more than that to prosecute her for not paying the fare.

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
