377th Theater Sustainment Command, Soldiers Train with, Pepper spray, also known as O.C. spray (from "Oleoresin Capsicum"), O.C. gas, and capsicum spray, is a lachrymatory agent (a chemical compound that irritates the eyes to cause tears, pain, and even temporary blindness) that is used in riot control, crowd control, and personal self-defense, including defense against dogs and bears. Its inflammatory effects cause the eyes to close, taking away vision. This temporary blindness allows officers to more easily restrain subjects and permits persons using pepper spray for self-defense an opportunity to escape. Includes interview with SGT Bryan Brown 377th Theater Sustainment Command, Soldier from belle Chasse, La.
