|Jennifer Fox, who was pepper sprayed during during a raid on Occupy Seattle last week is blaming police after she miscarried Sunday. She claimed that police hit her in the stomach twice before pepper spraying her. One officer struck her with his foot and another pushed his bicycle into her. Sunday when she went to the hospital, doctors told her that the baby had no heartbeat.
"They diagnosed that I was having a miscarriage. They said the damage was from the kick and that the pepper spray got to it [the fetus], too," she said.
