Tunica Police get new weapon in defensive arsenal
For local police, the last phase of training with a new weapon was the worst.
After taking practice rounds at a target Monday with the new JPX Pepper Gun, four officers with the Tunica Police Department got a taste – literally – of its effects.
Sgt. Ronnie Jefferson, Sgt. Lonnie Snowden, Patrolman Jim Woolfolk and Detective Mike Nichols lightly swabbed their upper lips and noses with the syrupy liquid that the new gun emits and then put a tiny drop on their tongues. A moment later, the four were bending forward, spitting and coughing violently.
