In some states, in order to possess high-grade pepper spray, you have to have been hit with OC first.
Well, this week was Pepper Spray Bonanza in the news.
First off, we all heard about the 8-year old kid in Colorado who went ballistic in his classroom and caught a face full of OC. He went on Good Morning America with his mom and griped that getting OC’ed was too much force. But what does a cop do when he’s brandishing a piece of wood trim, broke off at one point, telling cops to “Come get me, f***ers!” Yeah, the cops probably could have taken him down without the OC, but then, the little tyke would have probably ended up with a broken arm or something.
And then, in what has basically enraged all the kids who like cute cuddly wildlife, an officer in Texas opened up his can of OC on a baby squirrel that kept advancing on him. The students, begging for the cop to not spray him were horrified when this tree rat was hit. It didn’t freak or anything – it just sorta stopped there. Maybe the squirrel was menacing or something, who knows. Anyway, I thought it was pretty funny, actually, but then, I’m not a big fan of squirrels.
So I close out with this video of a Navy Trainee getting a blast of SABRE. That’s gotta suck, no matter who you are.
Unless you’re this Marine female – she probably would drink the stuff. She’s got bigger stones than most of the guys she trains with.
Maybe a requirement for Congress and the Presidency is that the candidate must subscribe to being OC’ed and Tasered before taking office. That way, we’d actually get people with some guts in there.
