Being an MP I had to deploy and now that im back in garrison I get to work the road.. Now that being said I also get familiar with MP equipment: Impala, X26 Taser, OC spray (pepper spray) extendable baton (asp) and as well as the law.
Well Yesterday I got certified to carry the Taser on duty and i decided to volunteer and get tased...WOW! If you have FB look me up (Adam Bieber Ft Drum) nd you can see the video... it was only five seconds but it seemed like ten..Still have the burn marks on my foot and back. And today I got sprayed with OC. Now for those of you who buy it in stores most of the SHU (scoville heat units http://ushotstuff.com/Heat.Scale.htm) for civilian spray are a relatively mild 2 million units. Civilian LE (law enforcement) sprays are roughly 5 million units. Today we took 15 million! The pain wasn't too unbearable it was more the psychological factor of NOT being able to see and open my eyes.. Panic set in and if i didn't have good friends i'd still be screaming. If an officer tells you to do somethin' DO IT! Always remember an LE officer will put THEIR SAFETY FIRST! I'm not sayin' cops are always right, but if there's an issue settle it with a lawyer present at the station after cooperating.
