Police officer witnesses man on fire, leaps into action by spraying him down liberally with an industrial-sized can of pepper spray
Portland police officer accidentally sprayed burning man with pepper spray

[link to www.oregonlive.com]

A Portland police officer accidentally used pepper spray instead of a fire extinguisher on a man who lit himself on fire downtown near a fur store Wednesday.

Portland Police Bureau Chief Rosie Sizer said the officer was at a stoplight at Southwest 12th Avenue and Yamhill Street when she saw a man in flames.

When the officer went to get a fire extinguisher out of the trunk of her patrol car, she accidentally grabbed a large can of pepper spray used in riot control. Sizer said the pepper spray cans are red like a fire extinguisher.

The pepper spray was water-based, not oil-based, and nonflammable. Kim Kosmas of the Fire Bureau said the spray "didn't have any additional reaction with him already being on fire."

"I have never heard of a situation like this," Sizer said. "To be confronted with someone fully engulfed in flames is something that is so unexpected and so outside the norm that you respond very instinctively. And in many, many ways, her acts were heroic."

The man who set himself afire, 26-year-old Daniel Shaull of Dodge City, Kan., died at a hospital later Wednesday. His father, Warren, said his son had psychiatric problems and was living on the streets.

Shaull recently boarded a bus to Oregon, where he had never been, and arrived in Portland about five days ago, his father said. He said Shaull was suicidal when he left.

"I had a feeling something was going to tragically happen," Warren Shaull said.

Though Shaull set himself on fire near Nicholas Ungar Furs at 1137 S.W. Yamhill St. -- the site of numerous anti-fur protests -- Warren Shaull said his son's act was not political. He said Shaull came to Portland to seek help from a religious group that ended up taking him to the Portland Rescue Mission.

"He was mentally ill," Warren Shaull said. "He was tired of living."

Warren Shaull was interviewed before Sizer's news conference and could not be reached afterward for comment.

The officer, who has been on the job for fewer than 10 years, did not know she had used pepper spray until she got back to central precinct, Sizer said. Another officer found the empty can later at the scene.

"It was a mistake that she was unaware of, and a mistake that she's heartsick about," Sizer said.

Police spokeswoman Mary Wheat said the officer is on vacation that was planned before the incident. Police are not pursuing any disciplinary action, she said. She declined to identify the officer.

Sizer said the bureau is going to look at ways to better distinguish items carried in trunks.

When Shaull set himself on fire, a person driving by also responded immediately and grabbed a fire extinguisher from his truck. Sizer said Shaull was running away from those trying to help him. Several officers and residents were later involved, she said.

Total incompetence and cruelty in our police these days. They aren't worthy to even kiss the feet of our heroic EMT's and firemen.

i have noticed sooo many cases of police mysteriously deciding to murder (via supposed accident, or intentionally)

"mentally ill" persons

is it the beginning of a genocide made possible by mind control technology and the police state that has been erected as part of the phony "war on terror" ??

i recall a case of a hispanic guy who was know to be whacked in the head, but basically harmless, who was killed for playing basketball with local youth. the kids were distraught after police showed up and beat him up, he died enroute to the police station

there was the case of a teenager walking on a bridge railing who was tasered by cops, fell off and broke his back, and was then tasered multiple times as he lay helpless on the ground with a broken back

a guy who was driving a bit erratic, jumped out of his car and was running around naked. death by taser (if you're mentally ill, don't start running around naked because this seems to trigger cop killings like nothing else)

That's a statement the fire bureau never expected they would have to make.
If you can justify killing one man, you can justify killing every man.

The Greatest Lie is the one never told, but assumed.

History isn't a measure of our successes, but the compilation of our mistakes.

Yes, and when I get a burn on my finger, the first thing I reach for is the hottest pepper jalapeno juice I can find, in order to soothe the raw burned area. ahhh
