Illegal use of food product

Thanks to the internet, this guy will have his face and image go world-wide, showing him comitting an act of brutality.  Nice way to cap off your career in law enforcement, buddy!


Disturbing as the original incident was, the image of a militaristic officer spraying pepper at innocents has also gone world-wide as a satirical and inventive internet meme.

I am always amazed at the creativity of human beings.

Meanwhile, in the "you couldn't make this up" department, Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly defends the action, declaring that pepper spray is "a food product, essentially!"  

I am equally amazed at the absurdity of human beings.

I hadn't seen this before. Of course I've watched the actual video play over and over. Sadly, it brought back memories of things like Kent State. Very sad and oh, so wrong.

I guess pepper spray is technically a food product, but I seem to recall that the NYC police were not amused when an Occupy Wall Street protestor threw what was thought to be vinegar (but it may have been iced tea) in their faces last week...in fact they hauled her off to jail.

Oy.

I am amazed at the absurdity of a certain media network every time I am subjected to it.

Clearly, humanity has gone mad.
