Pretty Red-haired Woman With Pepper Spray


Oleoresin Capsicum (OC), commonly known as "Pepper Spray", is an inflammatory agent that will cause mucous membranes to swell, producing an immediate closing of the eyes, uncontrollable coughing, gagging and gasping for breath. OC also produces sensation of intense burning of the skin. These physiological effects produce an instantly compliant subject who has lost coordination and upper body motor control, thereby precluding and further aggressive behavior. OC is an organically based non-lethal aerosol weapon designed to incapacitate most attackers instantly - with no after effects. OC instantly immobilizes a human or animal for up to 45 minutes, regardless of size or strength. The formulation is based on Oleoresin Capsicum, a powerful inflammatory agent that occurs naturally in cayenne peppers.
