New York City has asked authorities in Washington DC about the use of U-24 spray used by our military.
This spray would certainly result in fewer deaths and injuries so why can't it be used on criminals or to disrupt crowds, NYC cops wish to know.
A new spray that has been used and is successful in Afghanistan could be approved.
"The drawback with using it on criminals especially is that we don't know what the long term effects would be", stated one congressman who has been a part of a group doing a study on U-24."
"It's a lot less dangerous than pepper spray if you ask me", stated Senator Rand Paul. "But it throws the criminal into total confusion and it certainly breaks up crowds."
Still, a group of scientists who invented the spray say they need to study it more and have asked for some volunteers.
In case some haven't heard of the new spray, U-24, it gets it's name from removing a subject's memory temporarily, many for 24 hours, and throws them into a panic because they are right back to events the previous day in their minds.
"It doesn't last but 12 hours on a few people but can go for up to 24-26 hours on others. The "U' stands for Unconsciousness.
We're sure to be hearing about this from others for and against it as usual but the United States is the only one who know the make-up of the spray.
