Seattle Post-Intelligencer photographer Joshua Trujillo captured the image of pepper-sprayed octogenarian, Doril Rainey, the former school teacher that has quickly gone viral across TwitterFacebook and Tumblr.

On Countdown last night, 84-year-old Dorli Rainey told Keith Olbermann her story about getting pepper sprayed by the Seattle Police. ”I feel great. I feel so energized. It’s so amazing the effect a little pepper spray can have on you.”

The woman in the picture is not just any elderly woman, however, as she is well known to Seattle residents. Dorli Rainey is a former school teacher who has been active in local politics since the 1960s. In 2009, she ran for mayor, but eventually dropped out by saying, “I am old and should learn to be old, stay home, watch TV and sit still.”

The Seattle Post-Intelligencer, “(Mayor) McGinn Apologizes for Pepper Spray, Criticizes Cops.”
