A chilling look at "crowd management tools" - a.k.a. weapons - made by companies with names like Defense Technology and Combined Tactical Systems and increasingly used by police, from pepperball guns and compressed-air pepper-spray backbacks to projectiles firing bean bag "pain compliance rounds" and fog machines dispensing clouds of tear gas "to provide reliable, less-lethal, effective means of incapacitation." From Mother Jones. Also, hilarious new reviews from Amazon customers.
"No meal is complete without just a touch of Mustard gas. Dinner conversation has never been so peaceful!"
