    Post Kids Mistake Pepper Spray For Perfume

    From: TheBostonChannel.com

    BOSTON -- Several elementary school children were sent to the hospital early Thursday after they discovered a canister of pepper spray on the campus, mistook it for perfume, and sprayed it on each other, police said.

    The incident happened at the Cambridgeport Elementary School at 89 Elm St. about 8:30 a.m. and involved three 8-and 9-year-olds.

    They were taken to the hospital and their parents were notified.

    Their names were not immediately released and it was not clear how the pepper spray came to be at the school.

    I will be the one to ask it: why was pepper spray lying around at an elementary school?

    I'll be the one to ask: Why couldn't 8/9 year-old kids figure out that eu de Burn-your-effing-face-off was NOT a perfume?

    I hear that Eau de BYFFO is quite popular in the corrections system these days.

    I didn't read how old the kids were prior to now.

    well, Ducky - in all fairness - it does take a few seconds to activate... and we all know that we live in a society of instant gratification - if they didn't notice anything wrong instantly, why not try it on others...

    makes sense to me =/ i guess...


    i've got a better idea... the knuckleheads knew what it was and did it on a dare... cause that sounds like more of the kind of stuff we'd do when i was around that age

    They are definitely old enough to read, and I've never seen perfume come in a bottle that looks even close to an OC can. I think they did it just being kids, then realized they needed help, and an excuse.

    Thanks, I was unaware of the delay. I'd go one step further and say they didn't actually FIND it so much as "got it out of Mom's purse and decided to try it as Axe Body Spray for Idiots."

    yeah - the kick is... the media bought their "excuse"...

    i mean damn... why weren't folks this gullible when I was trying to get away with crap when I was younger... I would've NEVER gotten in trouble - my "excuses" were SOOOOOOOO much better than stuff like this

    Upon reflection and actually reading more in the news, I'll go with my initial gut instinct and say that they probably didn't "find" the pepper spray, I'm betting it's the sprayer's mother's or something.

    I can't think of anyone I know who has OC who would NOT notice that it wasn't there... generally you don't even pull it out if you don't have a use for it immediately, other than putting it in your purse/pocket/whatever when you get dressed.
