Occupy Seattle Protester Blames Pepper Spray, Beating, for Her Miscarriage
Jennifer Fox, an Occupy Seattle protester, told the Seattle Stranger, an alternative news weekly, that she suffered a miscarriage she thinks is due to police pepper-spraying and beating her during a Nov. 15 protest. Images from the protest went viral after photographer Joshua Trujillo captured the injured Fox and 84-year-old Dorli Rainey after they had been hit with pepper spray. Police said they had asked the protesters to move from an intersection, but the protesters did not. The Seattle mayor later apologized to Rainey and said they would investigate whether the police used excessive force on peaceful protests.
