i also like to say i think any form of pepper spray will effect human big time .. just do a simple test.. touch some normal chille or hot pepper the one you eat with your food .. then you touch your eyes or your nose with the same hand and see what will happens to you you will be so sorry that you did what you did...now you can imagin how effective even a weak spray can be, which is much more stronger that those hot peppers  you were eating.

Experience

As a founding member and the current Vice President of AWARE (a volunteer, nonprofit organization), I have helped thousands of women learn to protect themselves from crimes ranging from minor harassment to serious assault. I am currently writing a book on safety for stalking victims. I have lectured at annual training meetings of the American Society of Law Enforcement Training, Women in Federal Law Enforcement, the International Women Police Association, the American Society of Criminology, and the American Women's Self-Defense Association. In 1997, the American Tactical Shooting Association gave me their annual Tactical Advocate Award for teaching and writing.
