That was my first thought too, but I think even a tiny amount of VX (drops) would wipe out city blocks. But everything I know about it is from The Rock (with Nicolas Cage/Sean Connery).

Found this, pepper spraying maybe?

SAN FRANCISCO -- Four people were hospitalized after someone sprayed pepper spray at an entrance of the Powell Street Muni station in San Francisco this evening, a spokesman said.
Someone sprayed pepper spray for unknown reasons at about 6:20 p.m. at one of the Powell Street entrances to Muni, San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency spokesman Paul Rose said.
No one was seriously injured, but two station agents and two bystanders were taken to a local hospital as a precaution. An additional two were sprayed but did not need to go to the hospital, Rose said.
Rose could not say if any arrests were made. A police spokesperson was not immediately available for comment.

It would have to be somewhat chaotic for such a fuss. Perhaps they did not realize it was pepper spray at first and people just started screaming. Some people nowadays immediately think of the "T" word when tragedy strikes, particularly to a crowd AND at a subway system, then panic ensues, maybe.

Pepper spray is awful. It made me simultaneously want to expel my lung contents and gasp for air at the same time. I was only in the same room when a little bit was sprayed. I can't imagine actually being hit with a direct stream of the stuff.

It is a different event and I just googled it. At this point they don't know why he veered off into the crowd. They say he was not under the influence. Strange....

Because the threat of terrorists have everyone jumping at shadows. I am sure people there were actually convinced that they were under chemical attack. Mail some baking powder to a politician, a fleet of emergency service personel would be summoned. For baking powder.

Yea a teaspoon would be enough to take out a few city blocks at least. I don't know why but ever since that incident I just haven't felt like they were being honest. Great line from the X-files. "The best way to hide a lie is between 2 truths"

Here is an article where the FBI keeps 'merica safe by ordering some "illegal" "obscene" material from a DVD distributor. That is entrapment. Don't believe me? Well, that's just like, your opinion man.. which is the same standard used to define obscenity.

They actually plead guilt, but said they did not intend to break the law. It seems that local communities can define obscenity standards. This is fine, however, the burden of law should fall on the consumer, not the distributor.

and sorry but how is this relevant to this story?
