Seattle Cop Pepper Sprays Non-Hostile Citizens

A frantic Seattle cop was caught on camera pepper spraying citizens as they strolled by during a anti-police brutality protest on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, including a teacher who had just finished speaking and was on the phone with family when he was sprayed.

The cop has not been identified but she is the second female Seattle cop to make the news in two days, the first being [__Cynthia Whitlatch,__](http://photographyisnotacrime.com/2015/01/dash-cam-video-shows-seattle-cop-falsified-charge-elderly-man-walking-street/) who is still on the force despite being proven a liar after she was caught on dash cam video arresting an elderly black man for using a golf club as a walking cane, accusing him of swinging it at her as a weapon.

The teacher, Jesse Hagopian, filed a lawsuit Wednesday, the same day the video was posted.

A Seattle police spokesperson r[__efused to comment, claiming he had not seen the video,__](http://photographyisnotacrime.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/Seattle-teacher-suing-city-after-being-pepper-sprayed-at-MLK-rally-290149021.html) even though it is quickly going viral (they always claim even though it’s their job to watch these videos in order to comment).

> Jesse Hagopian, a history teacher at Garfield High School, spoke during an MLK rally in Seattle and says he was on the phone while leaving the January 19th event. As Hagopian, a father of two, was walking to meet family, he says he was pepper sprayed by a Seattle police officer.
> The incident was captured on video and uploaded to YouTube Wednesday, the same day Hagopian’s attorney filed a claim against the city.
> “I felt the piercing pain shoot through my eye, my ear drum and my nostril, all over my cheek and face,” Hagopian said, recalling the incident. “I yelled out. My mom was in distress as she heard me yell.”
> Seattle Police spokesman Patrick Michaud said he hadn’t seen the video as of Wednesday afternoon and couldn’t comment. Michaud said the video was not taken by SPD staff.

The cop will likely claim she was in fear for her life as you can hear her yelling “get back!” to people as she stood behind her bicycle, liberally pepper spraying the unsuspecting crowd.

Like Whitlatch, this woman has no business being a cop.

**UDPATE:** The female cop wasn’t the only cop pepper spraying the crowd that day as the second video will demonstrate.

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
