A bundle of joy and Occupier of at least two hearts is about to enter the world. Mother Kaylee and father Robert were brought together due to none other than Inspector Tony Bologna's cruelty, Bologna being the infamous member of the New York Police Department who pepper-sprayed Kaylee Dedrick and others on video during the first round of Occupy Wall Street protests last year.

Ms. Dedrick, 26, is expecting a daughter in two weeks with Robert Grodt, 25, said her lawyer, Ronald L. Kuby.

The couple met a year ago today, after Ms. Dedrick, a teacher's assistant with no history of arrests, was sprayed on the sidewalk on East 12th Street. Mr. Grodt, a volunteer medic, took her into a movie theater and treated her in a utility closet. On New Year’s Eve, he proposed to her in Zuccotti Park.

Bologna comes in almost unseen from the right, sprays, then retreats quickly

This acidic (or, should we say, capsaicinic ?) correction is posted along with the article on Ms. Dedrick and Mr. Grodt.

An earlier version of this post contained a photo and a video that were not of Kaylee Dedrick, the subject of the piece. The photo and video were of a different young woman with short hair and a gray tank top who appears in a different video of Deputy Inspector Anthony Bologna pepper-spraying protesters.   
A different young woman... a different video... the same asshole, pepper-spraying away. Got it.

According to the article, a total of six people have now sued Inspector Bologna. And according to the Huffington Post, Bologna action's are not being defended by the City of New York on the taxpayers' dime:

Anthony Bologna-- the NYPD Deputy Inspector caught on video pepper-spraying two women Occupy Wall Street protesters in Union Square last fall-- could have to dig into his own pockets to pay for the damages in the women's civil lawsuit against him. New York City has opted not to defend Bologna in court, The Wall Street Journal reports.

FY! Inspector Boloney.
Another day, another victim

Mazel tov! Kaylee and Robert.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
