Security pepper sprays students

Discussion in 'Sports and News' started by Evil ... Thy name is Orville Redenbacher!!, Nov 4, 2009.

  1. A security guard used pepper spray on a high school student who was rushing the field after a game ...
    Justified or Overkill?

    They should lay assault charges against the idiot rent-a-cop.

    There is a reason this guy is a security guard and not a real cop.

    I was going to say "dumber than a bag of hammers" but that works too.

    The fan(s) who ran at a rent-a-cop who was waving a can of pepper spray isn't exactly MENSA material, either.

    I kind of think that, as a general rule, many high school students should be randomly shot with pepper spray.

    Then I read this part of the story:

    My god! Impacted? I didn't realize that stuff might do that. It should probably be banned.

    Sorry, but where in that article does it say fans ran AT the cop?

    From the Nov. 2003 Post-Gazette:

    But that was nothing compared with what happened Oct. 22, when the team upset No. 3 Virginia Tech, 28-7, in what some call the greatest win in West Virginia history.

    Students poured onto the turf at Mountaineer Field and tried to rip down the goal posts. After a 40-minute battle, police using liberal amounts of pepper spray and brute force managed to clear the field.
