For the lawyers perusing the site, if one was to use a canister of bear repellant on cops during a "peaceful" protest at this time, what do you think the legal charges would be?

It's not like pepper spray, that fires a 6-10 ft stream. Bear spray is a Fogger, the instructions are to move away from an approaching bear while spraying back and forth, creating a wide and thick area, that the bear may venture into, then retreat back the way they came when overcome by fumes.

While I'm not a lawyer, my guess is that the "best" case scenario; a person attempting to use bear spray on police would get arrested, while the "worst" case scenario would be that before getting arrested: they could get clubbed, shot or their neck stepped on!

It is probably considered a deadly weapon as someone could disable a cop and take their gun...!

You can keep your job
and Earn extra for the pain and suffering your bad actions caused you

Quote:
A former UC Davis police officer whose pepper-spraying of protesters gained worldwide notice thanks to a viral video has been awarded more than $38,000 in workers' compensation from the university for suffering he experienced after the incident.

Former police Lt. John Pike, who gained a degree of infamy for his role in the incident, was awarded the settlement Oct. 16 by the state Division of Workers' Compensation Appeals Board. The claim "resolves all claims of psychiatric injury specific or due to continuous trauma from applicant's employment at UC Davis."

The incident that resulted in the $38,055 settlement happened Nov. 18, 2011, on the UC Davis quad during a demonstration opposing tuition increases. On the widely circulated video, Pike is seen dousing protesters for about 15 seconds with orange pepper spray.

Pike was suspended with pay afterward. According to a database of state worker salaries, he earned $119,067 in 2011, the last year for which figures are available.
