ABC Online is reporting on the use by police of Capsicum spray on a teenage girl at a protest last year.
Now I’m sure our police readership will explain how this use was entirely within the interpretation of the guidelines.
But out here in public-land many of us wereunder the impression that OC spray was a non-lethal substitute for shooting people. Not something to be used to do over anyone who becomes annoying.
If her actions warranted a spraying why wasn’t she charged with anything? Or was a bit of a spraying summary justice?
