A Pregnant Woman Has Lost Her Eye After Being Shot W/ Bean Bag In Ferguson (USA)

A woman’s car ride comes to a horrible end
Early Tuesday morning, Dornella Conner was
“riding around, respecting Mike Brown” with her
boyfriend De’Angelas Lee when she was injured
with flying shards of glass after police officers fired
into her car with specialized “bean bag” bullets,
designed to help control rioters and unruly
protesters. According to Conner, she and Lee
pulled up at a gas station, and were blocked off on
all sides by approaching police officers before one
of them fired their weapon, injuring Conner in her
face. However, according to police officers,
Conner’s boyfriend, De’Angelas, aggressively
drove the car straight at them, which is why they
decided to fire the bean bag into the car to stop
their approach. Broken glass from the shattered
car window flew into Conner’s eye, and despite
being rushed to a hospital shortly after, doctors
were unable to save her left eye.
She released a statement to her page on Facebook saying;
