Spraying anouther person with pepper spray without justifiable cause is the same as assalt. Pepper spray can cause a person being sprayed to fall and hurt themselves. Not to mention the immeadiate discomfort of being sprayed. I was an NBC NCO in the serviv=ce for a time and had to adminaster CS gas to soldiers in order to train them not to panic and to take proper precautions when exposed to chemical spray. I witnessed people trip, falling and at times injuring themselves trying to get away from the source of the CS. I think anybody using CS should only use it when under attack by an aggresive individual. The woman who used it in the store is guilty of assault just as if she had struck trhe folks in that store. The cop who used it on non-agressive demonstrators should be fired and jail on charges of assault. If I punched you and caused no damage I would be guilty of assault, what's the differance.
