Pregnant St. Louis Woman Loses Left Eye After Police Officer Shoots into Car

I couldn't fit it into the title but it was a non-lethal beanbag round.

Quote:
A pregnant St. Louis woman lost her left eye after a violent run-in with law enforcement earlier this week.

Dornnella Conners says an officer fired a non-lethal bean-bag round at the car she was in – shattering the passenger side window.

Shards of glass bloodied her face and robbed her of sight in her left eye, according to reports.

“I will have justice for what they did to me but I’m happy I’m alive,” she wrote on Facebook on Thanksgiving.

Conners was injured early Tuesday morning shortly after the announcement that Darren Wilson would not be indicted in the fatal shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown.

Crowds of demonstrators had taken to the streets to protest what they consider a travesty of justice.

Conners, who was angry about the grand jury’s decision, and her boyfriend, De’Angelas Lee, were parked at a BP gas station on New Halls Ferry Road in St. Louis, just north of Ferguson, KMOV reported.

As her boyfriend started to drive away, she says, several police officers arrived.

“They pulled up while we were coming towards the street, De’Anglas was trying to get away, they blocked us from the side, front and back,” Conners told the CBS affiliate.

That’s when an officer fired the bean bag round because he feared for his safety, police said.

Conners found another officer who could help her get medical attention.

Dornella’s father, Donnell Conners, says he understands that the cops have a difficult job to do but there was no excuse for what happened to his daughter.

“I’m very upset, very disappointed with tactics that they used trying to get control of situation,” he told KMOV. “I understand tough job, I understand that it was chaos, there was no reason to fire upon innocent person sitting in a vehicle.”

Conners says her left eye was so badly damaged that it needed to be removed and reports blurriness in her right eyes but is thankful she can still see the world at all.

Police say they arrested 16 suspects at the station after gunshots were reportedly fired.

Authorities have issued a warrant for Lee’s arrest, according to reports.

What did Lee do, to warrant an arrest?

From the incident I'd assume, but that's all the article said. As the police stated, Lee was driving "at" them. But this article says the cops actually blocked the car in front and back before the shot was made.

Damn it Vrist, stop asking those inflammatory questions...just accept the party line and assume the police officer was another deranged bloodthirsty thug cop that enjoys shooting pregnant women...you know, like all the rest. If you start injecting logic and rational thought into the story you'll ruin all the fun. If you keep trying to talk sense you're gonna get targeted by the DR Anti-Police Brigade and then you'll start blocking folks. Just remember the DRAPD's motto, "He who shouts loudest and longest wins...common sense be damned!"

Yea, vague article. I just wonder if her BF caused her situation by placing her in a cross-fire.

At least the baby is ok. I am not sure I would have my pregnant wife/gf in the middle of a heated protest, that was already predetermined to cause riots.

I'm sure people are use to me throwing random perspectives by now. Sometimes even things I don't believe myself.

They were at a convenience store at the time of the shooting, not participating in any protests or riots.

I guess we'd need more of what was going on really, before really deciding.

Just too me, if they have a warrant for lee, there must be something we're not seeing here.

Possibly.. He could easily have put her in a bad situation, I don't know if going to a store would constitute that however. Or maybe it's just a coverup for a mistake, who knows..
