    image ...

    according to the guardian uk:

    "The image looks dramatic but it should be noted that the fluid dripping from Rainey's face is probably a solution applied by medics to calm the effects of the pepper spray"

    if someone knows this woman, her account needs to heard.

      Does it really matter? The fact is they pepper-sprayed an 84 year old defenseless woman. You're looking for nits to pick to downplay the horror of what they did to her. Let that graphic image be a reminder of the pain this poor woman had to endure whether it's actual pepper spray or some milk concoction used to ease the burning. She wouldn't look like that if they hadn't sprayed her in the first place!

        that.  I'm not seeing too many comments from our local authoritarians in this diary.  If this is how 'obeying the law' looks, I guess I will just have to disobey it.
