Lethal "non-lethal" weapons must go

Couldn't agree more with comments from The Fat Guy about the Boston PD's deadly use of pepper spray "pellets" -- WTF! This "non-lethal" weapon killed a woman when police tried to disburse a jubilant crowd after the final Red Sox victory over the Yankees last week. Ironically, though some revelers were breaking windows and engaging in post-victory vandalism, by all accounts the dead woman was not.

I'll give them this: Boston police took responsibility and are replacing the weapons with lower velocity versions. That would never happen in Texas.
