In my daily YouTube trawl for TTAG’s Armed Intelligentsia I came across this gem from Red Pill Philosophy. RPP’s video begins with the usual, entirely reasonable kvetch about UK subjects’ inability to carry any form of personal self-defense weapon. Surprise! I learned about the one form of self-defense “weaponry” the UK government allows the Queen’s subjects . . .
Criminal identification spray. Or, to use its proper name, Temporary Witness Identification (TWI) spray.
Yup, it’s a chemical you spray on an attacker or attackers so that police can ID the bad guy(s) after you’ve been robbed, beaten, knifed, shot and/or raped. Also available in the U.S.! Only $50!
In the Land of Hopeless Glory, subjects can buy the same stuff for just £6.79 (around $10). “With the ever increasing crime rate, this product provides an alternative way to protect ourselves and deter attack,” promises Farb Gel, the U.K.’s number one TWI spray.
As John McEnroe famously pronounced, you cannot be serious! Only I am.
