Tasers aren't meant to "stun" people. They aren't stun guns. OC spray is not "repellant" unless you spray them with animal repellant or mosquito repellant. Tasers may or may not be a good SD choice, but they are effective for LE at times. Sometimes it beats the alternative. "Macing" people in holding cells in itself is not unheard of and not always a bad practice. People can injure themselves or others in a holding cell. Opening the door and starting a physical fight generally increses risk of injury to somebody involved. Depends on the situation and how the force is used. Not trying to defend poor decisions and actions that do happen out there every day, but you can't condemn practices and tools based on news articles.

True... the original "Mace" was primarily CN (1%)...later formulations either added the "pepper" component or did away with the CN component completely...In my experience, the original formulation was a little more brutal (nausea/vomiting)but more effective...

CN and CS blends are still available, of course. I'm not interested in using them for the most part. Definitely much more cross contamination possible. They do seem to produce a much stronger effect. IMO, CS and CN are much more effective in pyro form. And I hate them. CS works great, as long as it's not effecting me.............

There is a running joke amongst us that if you "pepper spray" a suspect, you get to fight him alone. Not the case in reality, however. But it shows the dislike for the stuff amongst our officers. Plus, it affects me so badly that I'm not sure I could operate in any capacity other than saving my life should I get it on me. When I got pepper sprayed, they said I had an uncanny reaction to it and hadn't seen a case so bad in a long time. Haha. I stay clear of it.
