One Angry Inmate vs A Dozen Cook County Officers
(Scroll down for video)
This is an example of why pepper spray, even law enforcement quality pepper spray, is damned near useless. Tasers, although not always fool-proof either, have the ability to knock down a perp and keep him/her down and disoriented. I am quite certain that the liberals that oversee and create jail policy for the Cook County Jail in Illinois probably prohibit the use of tasers as being too drastic a means of subduing a recalcitrant inmate. Meanwhile, jail personnel can get seriously hurt in trying to subdue an inmate with evil intentions.
