Macing of smackhead at Erindale

I’ve just had word from a colleague who witnessed an event at Erindale shops yesterday. However, nothing on line as yet.

Apparently a couple of female smackheads pulled a knife on some schoolkids. The cops attended quickly and upon asking one of these miscreants to drop the weapon, promptly maced her when she didn’t.

Lucky for her we don’t live in Victoria hey?

Anyone else have any update on this.

UPDATED: Diespiter77 has sent in the following YouTube video of this incident. Fascinating stuff (some bad language).

ANOTHER UPDATE: Intriguingly the video has been pulled.

What’s Your opinion?

A couple of years ago I inadvertantly let off a minute amount pepper spray that was in one of those key ring “self-defense” devices (which had been confiscated by Customs). It was in an open plan office. I’m serious whe I say it was a minute amount, nevertheless we ended up having to leave the area and a couple of people ended up having to go home.

my only experience with pepper spray, it was let off some 20 metres away (in a hallway). And at that range I could very clearly feel it in the back of my throat and in my eyes, while I very quickly exited the building. I am assuming that the technology of this stuff has improved a little int he last ten years, cause if the stuff the police had used had arosoled like that, there is no way the crowd would still have been cheering… It looked like it came out of the can as some kind of gel?

Do police have to practice with that stuff at the range occasionally like they (presumably) have to do with firearms?

I wonder why it was pilled from youtube? Besides I have not seen it
