Pepper spray as a neutralizing agent has not been used often. How many situations could have been stopped and lives saved by deploying this simple non-lethal defensive spray. I have personally used Pepper Spray and stopped many situations from anyone getting hurt. I worked as a field Police and Probation Officer. I also worked in a Jail. All the criminal justice jobs that I had Pepper Spray Neutralized many situations without anyone getting hurt. Oh, the bad guys may think his face was on fire which quickly went away and so did he.
