"Tear gas and pepper spray can be deadly. No one is protecting the public," In These Times reports. Chemical agents used by law enforcement in the U.S. have been banned from warfare. Studies indicate many short- and long-term health problems that can result from exposure to these agents. There are also no standards imposed on the manufacture of police-grade chemical weaponry, meaning the contents of the agents and solvents remains a mystery and a risk.
