teen

Bronx, NY – In an extremely disturbing video, an NYPD officer can be seen traumatizing a pregnant teen by shocking her with a stun gun. The teen was accused of resisting arrest on Friday night after she refused to let officers enter her apartment without a warrant.

The video evidence clearly shows teenager, Dailene Rosario, 17, who is 14-weeks pregnant, being swarmed by nearly a dozen officers before being taken to the ground with the stun gun.

Rosario says that she informed officers that she was pregnant prior to them electrocuting her and her baby with 50,000 volts.

“I was resisting them because I didn’t do anything wrong,” Rosario told New 12.

According to Rosario’s family police were in their building handling a separate issue on Friday night, but came to the family’s dwelling after Rosario’s boyfriend got into an altercation with her sister’s boyfriend while playing a video game.

When officers came to the residence, Rosario’s boyfriend was no longer there and Rosario was inside her home engaging in an argument with her sister’s boyfriend regarding the incident.

When police attempted to enter the residence, the sisters refused and told them they would need a warrant to enter the home. Police then called for backup.

At this point Rosario attempted to “get a breath of fresh air,” but police intervened and grabbed her.

“The officer said, ‘Oh, since you’re refusing,’ he grabbed my arm and I got pulled into the crowd of cops,” Rosario says.

Officers broke the door to the home down and arrested the sister’s boyfriend while the pregnant teen was being incapacitated and driven to the floor by the 50,000 volts of electricity shocking her — and her unborn baby.

The video, recorded by a witness, clearly shows Rosario being surrounded by officers. As they twist her arm she can be heard telling the cops to “get off me.” Only moments after Rosario tells the officers she is pregnant, a plainclothes officer in a baseball cap electrocutes her.

The fact that these police officers used a stun gun on a pregnant teen, in an effort to force compliance, speaks to the extremely abusive nature of the actions shown in the video. At the point she was tasered, there was no risk of injury to any officer, or that she would be a flight risk. The use of the device in this instance was simply a tactic to punish her to force compliance – something that falls well outside of the police scope of legitimate use.

Rosario was arrested for “fighting,” according to police, and is charged with resisting arrest, obstructing governmental administration and disorderly conduct.

The family says that Rosario sustained bruises to her body during the traumatizing incident, and that they are considering suing the NYPD.

    No Sandra, she shouldn’t. They violated her rights from word go which means that they are culpable for everything that happens after. POC are not slaves, We are not indentured servants, we have the same rights as you…we just die trying to assert them while assholes like you tell us it’s our fault.

  • Dan Cardinal

    Bullshit…simply just bullshit. A police officer can never draw ANY weapon unless he/she feels their own life or the life of someone else is in danger…PERIOD! There had to be 20 officers in that hallway and for one plain clothed officer to pull a tazer on a pregnant teen to subdue her is saying 19 other officers weren’t capable of securing the situation?! Just simply sad, who cares where the money comes from SUE their ass, it’s the point of the matter that counts most, they acted UNJUSTLY and ABOVE the LAW! A lawsuit isn’t enough, they should demand his resignation WITHOUT pay! He not only endangered her health but the health and well being of an unborn child! NYPD ASSHAT

  • Gloria Pereira

    By law a warrant must be produced and it would appear the cops did not want to comply shouldn’t the cops get tazed! She was a smart ‘bitch’ to check if they was given authority to enter her home otherwise were the cops not Trespassing? ? ? ? asshole

    Constitutional Rights are clear and State law is clear you need a warrant to enter a private dwelling even if arguments are heard, the law is the law, sorry but this is not Red Russia were all have to bow to the cops, but yes, co-operation is a must and you cannot resist arrest if you was under no knowledge of about to be arrested like reading those miranda rights, those pesky things.
