Here is a story from Revelstoke, British Columbia in Canada, a town that has a population of less than 7500 and is located 400 miles east of Vancouver-in other words out in the middle of nowhere.
The story is about a wave of how high profile assaults in North America called the Knockout Game.
The Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) have been investigating a series of "disturbing, random and violent attacks involving blindsiding a victim with no warning." The object of the "game" is to knock someone out with one punch.
An RCMP spokesman said that it wasn't really clear what the motivation behind these attacks was but he speculated that it could be the "knockout game" that has been spreading across North America like wildfire. He was very quick to point out that this is not a game at all, but instead of vicious violent felony assault.
Canada does not have any restrictions on the use of self-defense products as far as we know, so a pepper spray like this one on a Keychain would be a good way for people to defend themselves.
