    Teens volunteer to get pepper sprayed for criminal science class project

    Would you give your kid permission for this?

    Watch the video at link.

    *****

    Some high school students will take great pains to get some extra credit.

    A group of Ohio teens recently volunteered to get pepper sprayed as part of their criminal technology course.*A video of the exercise*shows the Barberton High School students lined up against a wall as their instructor steps before each one.

    Stop resisting, please comply,” he says before spraying a burst of pepper spray into the student's face and then moving down the line. A uniformed police officer stands in the background.

    The students begin screaming in agony and jumping up and down as soon as the pepper spray takes effect.

    I remember when they gassed us in boot camp with tear gas in a building with no ventilation. NOT FUN. But we survived. I would consent.
    If you are not willing to fall flat on your face, then the only thing you will have is a pretty face.

    Yeah sure, why not, if they're willing to volunteer.

    Opportunities are usually disguised as hard work, so most people don't recognize them.

    No. It's strictly regulated in New York and I see no valid reason to allow my teen to be pepper sprayed in the face for a high school experiment.

    Clarification: I would consent if my teen were willing and eager. Both conditions or no.

    If my teen was dumb enough to want to do this I would see that as a sure sign they weren't mature enough to make this decision.

    After watching the video, no. I would not let my kid subject himself to that.

    I would really wonder about anyone eager to be sprayed in the face with pepper spray.

    Perhaps the eagrerness to be part of science rather than just wanting pain? Perhaps.
