What makes Pepper Spray work?

Pepper can make our eyes tear from the spicy quality. Scientists figured out how to extract the hot product from the peppers to create a spray that could potentially halt the perp. Scientists found capsicum and how to store it in a form that is easy to use. Now pepper spray is used for riot control, crowd control, and for defense against animals like dogs and bears. Women use pepper spray for self defense. 

What is the history of pepper spray?

The use of pepper can't be dated since it has been around for centuries. But red chili pepper was being used for self defense in ancient India and China. Warriors and citizens from China wrapping ground cayenne in rice papers to throw it at the faces of enemies, opponents, or intruders. Pepper was easy to get and was a weapon of choice for self defense because it incapacitate a person temporarily. Ninjas, a secret martial art society of ancient Japan, have used ground pepper for disabling their opponents for centuries. Historically, in the Tukagawa Empire in Japan, police used a weapon called the "metsubishi." Metsubishi was a box of chili pepper the police used to blow hot pepper into the eyes of criminals. Mexico used chilies dating to 7000 BC. Mexican Indians were cultivating peppers in 5500 BC. Types of peppers were chiltecpin, jalapeño, ancho, paprika, serrano, cayenne pepper, as well as different colors of bell peppers. It is not known is Mexico used peppers for self defense or as weapons. More recent examples of use of pepper as a weapon dates back to the 14th and 15th century when slavery was rampant.

Chili pepper was used medically for treating wounds but also during torture. Pepper was a popular method for torturing people, criminals, and slaves. In the 1980's pepper spray became a legalized non-lethal weapon against perps, dogs, anything attacking someone.

How do civilians use Pepper spray?

The US Postal Service introduced Pepper spray or oleoresin of capsicum (OC) spray in the 1980's. OC was endorsed by the FBI as an official chemical agent in 1987 and it took 4 more years before it was legally accepted by law enforcement agencies. Some states in the US and some countries forbid the use of pepper sprays by civilians. It is illegal to use pepper spray, mace or tear gas in Canada. In the US, there are two types of pepper sprays that can be used by civilians CS (orthochlorobenzalmalononitrile) and CN (chloroacetophenone). OC or oleoresin capsicum is dispersed using aerosol cans. The spray was imported from Canada where it was used by civilians as a bear repellent. Now in most of the US civilian pepper sprays are safe as well as legal weapons for self defense. Considered to be extremely effective. Women use OC to repel attackers. When sprayed on the face of the attacker/s, OC causes intense pain for as long as 45 minutes including swelling and burning in the eyes.

How does Law Enforcement use OC?

Use of pepper sprays came into existence in the 20th century. First the FBI used OC soon followed by NYPD. Pepper spray was replaced by mace in October 1994. Now 97% of the law enforcement uses pepper spray as a non-lethal weapon on perps, mobs, and for crowd control.

In January 1997 NYPD switched from original pepper spray to the stronger 10% solution of oleoresin capsicum. The canisters were larger, held at least three times the solution and were effective in a range of 3-15 feet. The police in Netherlands were given OC Sprays in 2003. Sussex Police in the UK were given OC Sprays to fight miscreants and attackers in 2001.
