    Wait, so the police who are trained to use pepper spray weren't able to determine that is what the substance was until someone said so.

    You would think since police like to pepper spray anyone who doesn't comply with their illegal commands; and doesn't fit the mold for shooting on site. That they would recognize the symptoms of pepper spray. Burning lungs; respiratory distress; etc.

    Perhaps the police need some additional training; perhaps pepper spray each other; before they start spraying innocent people (like peaceful protestors).
