Everything you never wanted to know about CS gas. Govts. have been using this on their people for a LONG time. http://t.co/bbJ5sjW9

Five nations haven't signed Chemical Weapons Convention & can thus use CS gas: Angola, Egypt, N Korea, Somalia, & Syria cc: @acarvin
Kathryn Hall @KathrynHallPR
Still think it's weird that no one is talking about tear gas use on environmentalists in Humboldt. 'Coz they WON their case on 4th amendment

.@acarvin I called Non-Lethal Tech. in Homer, PA yesterday re: tear gas. Nightmare convo.
Andy Carvin @acarvin
Please do tell. RT @KathrynHallPR: .@acarvin I called Non-Lethal Tech. in Homer, PA yesterday re: tear gas. Nightmare convo.
Kathryn Hall @KathrynHallPR
.@acarvin Guy was hostile, aggressive, only wanted to talk about BH, and how I would "like things to go." "Do you want BH to be like Libya?

BH = Bahrain.

Kathryn Hall @KathrynHallPR
.@acarvin Mentioned kids, elderly dying in BH and he LAUGHED. Seriously.
Kathryn Hall @KathrynHallPR
.@acarvin Walked away from the convo realizing for HIM it was political and that stunned me.
Kathryn Hall @KathrynHallPR
.@acarvin I told him he was an asshole. All I could think of were vids of people dying in their houses at night in BH from his product.
Kathryn Hall @KathrynHallPR
@jc_erickson @acarvin If you look at my tweets from yesterday morning it's pretty much there.
the tweets from "yesterday morning":
Kathryn Hall @KathrynHallPR
All right, wtf is in that pepper spray? I'm calling Pennsylvania tomorrow. Will report back. (Expecting lies, but will give it my best shot)
Kathryn Hall @KathrynHallPR
Use of CS in war is prohibited under the terms of the 1997 Chemical Weapons Convention ~wiki
Kathryn Hall @KathrynHallPR
Well, here's their own slide show of their "non-lethal" products... http://t.co/bKgfKvnN
Kathryn Hall @KathrynHallPR
Wow. Called Non-Lethal Technologies in Homer, PA. The guy would NOT tell me what his JOB was. He would not let me talk to his supervisor.
Kathryn Hall @KathrynHallPR
Non-Lethal Technologies. "We have not sold munitions to Bahrain in years." Kids dying? "It's not being used properly."
Kathryn Hall @KathrynHallPR
Guy was hostile, aggressive, only wanted to talk about Bahrain, and how I would "like things to go." "Do you want Bahrain to be like Libya?
Kathryn Hall @KathrynHallPR
If you mean liberated, why, yes. Why yes I would. Shaking head. THIS is the mentality of someone manufacturing munitions? Unbelieveable.
Kathryn Hall @KathrynHallPR
Said, "I've been shot with tear gas many times." And he didn't die. I said, "You're not a kid or elderly." He LAUGHED. I kid you not.
