The images of protesters being arrested and dragged out of encampments is becoming all too common-place around the country. And like a lot of other cities, Occupy Seattle has been getting really ugly over the last week.
But this is just out of control.
In Seattle, CBS News reports that a priest; a 19-year-old pregnant woman; and 4 foot 10 inch, 84-year-old activist Dorli Rainey are all still in the hospital after police raids that took place yesterday.
There’s a picture of Rainey being carried away after she was pepper-sprayed below.
And where do the police stand on that?
People are posting and tweeting the picture like crazy.
Pepper spray … “is not age specific. No more dangerous to someone who is 10 or someone who is 80 … These protesters are well organised, they’re using homemade remedies to counter pepper spray,” he added. Also, “Pepper spray was deployed only against subjects who were either refusing a lawful order to disperse or engaging in assaultive behaviour toward officers.”
