As a normally adjusted human being, I take no pleasure in an 84-year-old woman getting pepper sprayed. I have to admit, though, the photograph I find kind of amusing is the one from the Oregonian where a 20-year-old woman has her mouth wide open screaming at police when an officer sprays her point blank. You can just see it: "F you, you F'ing pig, why don't you just kiss my aAAAAAAAAHHHHHH!"
I'll bet that one's framed in the precinct office.
