The First Ows Violent Crackdown Death: A Pregnant Woman Gets Pepper-sprayed And Kicked In The Stomach. And Miscarries.
Written on November 22nd, 2011
This is starting to seem surreal to me. Am I really living in a country where this behavior from police is acceptable? An 84-year-old woman gets pepper-sprayed. Big threat she was. She talked about it afterwards and there was room for dark humor about the situation. Oh, yeah, there was that veteran who ended up in the hospital. Not much room for humor there. And the videos of students being sprayed at close range with pepper-spray. And too many other incidents to name.
And still there are those that say that the protesters deserve it because they are breaking the law. Really? Do you want to live in a police state?
And now we have a pregnant protester getting kicked in the stomach and pepper-sprayed. . . And miscarrying 5 days later. Hey pro-lifers, are you going to come out on this one? Hello?
We may never know whether her treatment at the protest definitively caused the miscarriage. So let's not debate that here.
But can we agree that a pregnant protester, who stated her condition and was trying to leave, shouldn't have been kicked in the stomach and pepper-sprayed? Can we acknowledge that we have a really big problem here?
So Jennifer Fox has not cooperated with the initial reporter, and several that know her are coming forward and saying she is a compulsive liar.
Two months ago, I would have been more skeptical initially of a report like this. But there has been so much well-documented over-response from the police that it wasn't a stretch to imagine a young woman getting kicked in the stomach in the middle of all this. She certainly was pepper-sprayed, along with that dangerous 4'10" 84-year-old woman.
The reactions you see on video of people screaming and moaning from the pepper-spray is for real. If Bill O'Reilly really thinks that being pepper-sprayed at close range isn't a big deal, I challenge him to do a demonstration on his show.
