    One would hope for some proper measure of force within the continuum before this technique is applied.

    You're supposed to nuke it from orbit to be sure, not light the fuse by hand...

    Spider never asked if it was detained, so any amount of force is justified...

    Should have used the extinguisher on the spider before lighting the fire...

    I think it's totally reasonable use of force. All spiders must be killed with fire! It's the only way to be sure... *shudder*

    Did the spider die? Or is he hiding behind a pack of Oreos inside the station?

    No firearms........

    I was thinking more of "hand to leg" combat. Stick or Newspaper as escalation.

    Nope, I say rain wet death from the sky on it! I have a can with that things' picture on it with its' legs in the air and a big red slash through its' body and I'll spray that stream through that spiders' whole village until that can feels light!

    Couldn't he just shoot the spider in the leg?

    A Taser would've worked wonders here. Though, there's a good chance the spider may have died from excited delirium.

    He was lucky, I think it was liquid gas that caught fire. If he had pumped much and forced fumes out of the tank wouldn't it have exploded?
