Dem House candidate gets pepper sprayed in the face in campaign ad

A progressive House candidate in Colorado has released a campaign ad in which he gets pepper sprayed in the face as part of his call to combat violence in schools.

In the ad, posted last week, Levi Tillemann criticizes President Trump’s plan to arm teachers and school officials with firearms as a way to combat potential school shooters.

“I’m calling on Congress to stop talking past each other and try something new,” Tilleman says in the ad. “Empower schools and teachers with non-lethal self-defense tools, like this can of pepper spray.”

I think all members of congress should rigorously test..on themselves...the pepper spray. For validity...and science!

No in seriousness, all it would take is a simple mask to combat any measure of spray defense.

Like the Aurora, Colorado theater shooter and many others have done.

You think Levi would know this considering he is from Colorado and one of the prominent speakers in his video is from Aurora.

I appreciate the thoughts outside of the box. But pepper spray could turn an enclosed space (a class room), into a room full of visually impaired victims.

What's the range of that spray stream of pepper toxins? Can is spray as far as a bullet?

Wonder why this former Obama guy didn't get the science reports on that ?

If you're running for Congress, it's probably not a good idea to run an ad where you have to face-palm yourself.

However, if his Congressional bid fails, he could use this as an audition tape for Jackass.

lol, just saw that idiot.

I'm not even gonna try to justify his idea.

Someone slinging lead and who is gonna get close enough to spray him in the face?

Maybe with a bucket of rocks as supressive fire?

Might as well throw box jelly's at him.

I am all for ways to protect the children. They could install these in 5 foot increments within the walls of schools, each on it's own circuit. Then whoever is on guard duty can release accordingly. Also maybe moats around the school would help keep out people wanting to cause harm. Maybe stun guns built into the walls also. I guess I have a thing for walls.

This guy hopefully goes to every high school in Colorado to perform this non-lethal demonstration.

One high school a week.

He’ll live but his eyes won’t. But it’s all about non-lethality.

Go get ‘em Sparky!!

The only argument would be if the spray was a surprise. As in the perpetrator was in no way prepared for such occasion.

Given the MSM taking this and running it, i'd say those chances dwindled.

One time in middle school I brought a can of fart spray to school and raised all kinds of hell with it (much like the night before at the haunted house LOL). Imagine if they already had the pepper spray there ready for me to get into.



You know its possible to develop an immunity to the stuff, and theres a chem that makes one immune to Capsaicin (although not cheap or easy to come by we've joked about getting some to go beat those food challenges).

Yep.

Bring pepper spray ... to a gun fight!

Idiots are idiots

Perhaps bows and arrows ....


Some people will actually vote for this guy. All hail democracy on action.

You don't mean like a pair of swimming goggles, or a mask for paintball?? I would like to see his spin when asked this question in public.

OMG.

Am I the only one who watched this and thought "what a clueless wuss"?

Get that man to the rifle range.

Maybe this Dim House candidate can demonstrate how effective hard rubber bullets are next.

This measure could have had a much better chance at success if they just did it.

So, pepper spray can stop a guy ten feet away with a gun pointed at you? Yeah, as if I am going to let a burgler with a gun get that close and then pull out pepper spray.

I honestly feel embarrassed for the poor guy. He thought that was a great publicity stunt but it was mostly (totally?) pathetic.
