SEATTLE (AP) A downtown march and rally in support of the Occupy Wall Street movement turned briefly chaotic as police scattered a crowd of rowdy protesters including a pregnant 19-year-old and an 84-year-old activist with blasts of pepper spray.
Protest organizers denounced the use of force, saying that police indiscriminately sprayed the chemical irritant at peaceful protesters.
The Occupy Seattle movement released a written statement late Tuesday expressing support for "a 4-foot 10-inch, 84-year-old woman, a priest and a pregnant woman who as of this writing is still in the hospital."
Dorli Rainey is an activist who has supported liberal causes in the Seattle area for decades. A photo showing Rainey being cared for by fellow activists in the immediate aftermath of the police incident appeared on news websites around the world.
Seattle police spokesman Jeff Kappel said he didn't have specifics on the Rainey incident, but he said pepper spray is "is not age specific. No more dangerous to someone who is 10 or someone who is 80."
He added, that if it were harmful, "we probably wouldn't be using pepper spray if that was the case."

and this is supposed to gather sympathy for their cause, whatever it is this week or month?
The palestinians would have hidden behind them too.
They’ll throw children, old ladies, and disabled in the way, hoping that the cops will spray them and generate newspaper headlines.

They should prosecute the dumb bells that are responsible for them being there.
You either have to be a moron or not give a damn about your baby to go into a messy protest like that while you are pregant.
Were they both veterans?
Then they shouldn’t have been rioting. Duh.
Blame George Soros!
For goodness sakes. If you’re pregnant or old, STAY AWAY FROM THE LEECHES!
You take up with violence, expect to get “hurt”.
I was watching this all happen live on our local Seattle News. It was a group of rowdy protesters as you say, and they were intimidating the Police line, getting in their faces. I’m sure they were warned before they were pushed back by pepper spray. Once they were back 6 feet or so the pepper pray stopped. If she chose to be in that crowd pushing forward that is the price you pay.
Is it just me, or does she look a lot like Chelsea Clinton?
Looks like she is trying to poop
It’s not just you...
Rule Two: Don't stand next to people who are throwing turds at men with guns.
I have learned to shield my face from the steam coming off the pot.
Another media report said that two police officers were assualted, and that the protesters were blocking streets after being warned not to. AFTERWARDS, the demonstrators were sprayed.
“Leftists never cease to amaze. lifelong liberal pepper sprayed..”
Not for nothing, but if these morons think this is hardball, I wonder what they would do with Syrian mob control tactics?
