It's an irritant and some cadets maybe sensitive to it. Some rub it and that seems to make it a lot worse and increases swelling. It's good stuff way better than MACE from the old days. they really need to experience it to see the effect when deployed

We got sprayed,but only as an elective. Mpoetc deemed we didn't need to be exposed to it. I took the class and got spray. I closed my eyes and when I opened it sucked.



I also scratched my eye somehow and it got infected. Burned hard for the rest of the day and it looked like I had pink eye for a week.

Had both a male and female recruit that failed to bend at the waist as they were scrubbing off their faces.

You could hear the screams outside the locker rooms.

We had the same problem in every recruit class. There is always at least one that thinks that advice is some kind of joke.

The pain of reality soon hits!

Isn't one of the membership here currently in the PA state academy?
Makes sense to me. When I took my motorcycle test years ago in Va they had stopped all that nonsense like they have in other states with a rider on a seriously expensive cycle wrecking and being injured on the course. So now Pa is seeing recruits injured and it makes sense ro protect their investment.

After this I'm sure there will soon be legislation forbidding PA municipal officers from using OC.

I'm being completely serious.

We know. There will probably be a IACP and NSA movement against it as well. CALEA has a committee trying to out-regulate it as we speak.

Yep. If the gray gods can't use it, we sure can't either. After all, we arn't responsible enough to be trusted to not use RADAR as a money maker.

This

We weren't allowed to close our eyes. Everyone in my class (5) caught at least some of it directly in our eyes. One guy had his eyes swell up really bad for the rest of the day but by the next day we were all (mostly) fine. Although I woke up the next morning with my eyes burning...

Getting rid of OC is a step forward. That stuff is DANGEROUS!

Next we move on to getting firearms out of the hands of police. Those things KILL!!


Yes, I am being sarcastic.

Somebody has to understand that we have to have reliable stand-off non-lethal weapons...even the sometimes problematic ones like OC sprays. We've been forced to dumb-down the hiring standards until now we've got an uncomfortable number of IBO's who can't be taught how to go hands-on, but still are charged with bringing out-of-control people back under control. WTF are we supposed to use...?

It'd be a far more polite society if we went back to fixing problems with either a 24-inch hickory stick, or a 12-gauge rifled slug. But I suppose that's only further evidence of my un-enlightened attitude.

I remember one of my academy classmates had a herpe sore on his mouth on OC day. The spray blasted off the scab.
