Pretty blatantly a viaotoiln of the case law precedent on use of Pepper Spray. See Headwaters Forest v. Humboldt County (US 9th Circuit Court of Appeals)Some choice quotes from that decisions:  The protestors were nonviolent and unarmed. None were physically menacing.  They posed no danger to themselves. A reasonable factfinder could have concluded that using pepper spray bore no reasonable relation to the need for force. That the defendants were frustrated by the protestors was irrelevant.  The reasonableness of a use of force must be judged from the perspective of a reasonable officer on the scene. The use of pepper spray is not reasonable simply because police have the legitimate objective of making an arrest. A rational juror could have concluded that the nonviolent trespass did not render pepper spray necessary to effect the arrests.
