From Brazil with love.

Amidst the news of the decreasing use of tear gas (which I cannot independently confirm) and the (more certain) news of the use of capsaicin in TOMA trucks’ water cannons (instead?), here’s a familiar image of a tear gas canister with its expiration date conveniently elided.

It reads:

It is dangerous to use
(this thing) after its
last-usage date
Series: BEO-J
Production Date: 10/2011
Last-Usage Date: [?]

*wink wink*

*wink wink*

But even more dangerous than extending the shelf-life of your non-lethal chemical arsenal is using it incorrectly. Or, rather, “incorrectly.”

Type 1

gas canister

Do not fire
at people

How “open” those areas and how “directly” the canisters are fired are, presumably, the prerogative of the end user.
