Amy Goodman of Democracy Now spoke with Dorli Rainey about the circumstances of her encounter with Seattle police that resulted in her being pepper-sprayed in the face.

In Seattle, Mayor Mike McGinn apologized Wednesday, hours after an 84-year-old retired Seattle school teacher named Dorli Rainey was pepper-sprayed in the face during a protest. Photographs of her moments after she was pepper-sprayed went viral, showing the chemical irritant and liquid used to treat it dripping from her chin. According to Occupy Seattle organizers, a priest and a pregnant teenager were also pepper-sprayed Tuesday night…”My problem is not only with police brutality,” Rainey says. “It’s with the progressively getting worse attitude of the police.”
