These students are in the Criminal Science class at Barberton High School in Ohio. They all volunteered to be a part of this exercise, and ALL had signed waivers from their parents to do so.
All of them wanted to see what the effects of pepper spray felt like.
I'm fairly sure they won't be doing it again.
The effects - while painful, aren't really harmful and wear off after about an hour.
So if YOUR kid came home with a waiver asking for your permission to do this - would you let them?
In a heartbeat.
Go ahead! Learn what that feels like- and you're know why you never want to be on the receiving end of this ever again...
