This video has been making the rounds and is being offered as proof from the lefties that the NYPD pepper sprayed innocent bystanders during the ongoing Wall Street protests. The New York Daily News reports an investigation into the pepper spraying incident has been launched, and that anonymous protesters have made public the personal information of the police officer they claim sprayed the women. Here’s the video:
If you watch the video, you can devise your own theories as to what happened. Here’s what I think might have happened: I think the police officer in question saw the innocent bystander women as they were being corralled into the portable orange holding pen by the police officers and he came over to offer the poor victims assistance.
As he approached the shrieking, hysterical women, he noticed an overwhelmingly strong stench of B.O. Seeing that the odoriferous women’s beckoning arms were upright and outstretched, the officer logically thought they were presenting their unshaven, stench laden pits to him for a quick spray of official NYPD deodorant.
In the midst of all the chaos and obviously not thinking clearly, he mistakenly pulled out his pepper spray canister, thinking it was the coveted spray deodorant they so desired. What happened next is simply a tragic case of a good intention gone wrong. Although the officer sprayed the deodorant/pepper spray directly into the hirsute pits of the innocent women bystanders, the wind kicked up and all hell broke loose.
In a state of shock, the shaken officer re-holsters the spray canister and wanders back aimlessly into the crowd. Of course, I am not saying this is what happened, but only that this is what could have happened. Anyway, I hope you enjoyed the video as much as we at The Morning Spew did. Please feel free to leave your theories as to what you think might have happened in the comments.
