Barberton High School in Ohio has a criminal technology course that runs on a point system. The students need 12 points to graduate, and with graduation quickly approaching and a pepper spray challenge worth one entire point, students decided to step up to the challenge and experience pepper spray. Their reaction in the video going viral speaks for itself.
The exercise is designed to let students hoping to one day work in law enforcement understand the effects of pepper spray. The exercise was optional and the student's parents had to sign a waiver.
