Occupy Seattle Turns Violent

Police used pepper spray to disperse the Occupy Seattle crowd on Tuesday night—reportedly injuring an 84-year-old woman and causing a pregnant woman to be hospitalized. Protest organizers denounced the use of force, which they say came during a peaceful march downtown. Seattle police spokesman Jeff Kappel said he did not have the details of the particular incident, but added that pepper spray is not dangerous and should not have injured anyone.
