Last night on 'cops with camera's'' there was an incident where police were trying to restrain a muscular drunk young man and were struggling! One burst of CS and it was all over with no animosity afterwards towards the arresting officers.

Yes I know cons could take them off us, just like our keys, radio, batons etc.
Colin Moses has yet again asked for body armour to be issued, should it be?
Police Officers are regularly trained to use CS incapacitant spray but are often heavily cautioned against using CS inside buildings, because the CS can then contaminate people who the officer did not intend be contaminated, outside unwanted CS is easily dispersed but could CS ever really be used inside a building? Anybody have experience of this?
