Two young males have been arrested for robbing several businesses over the last two months.  They used pepper spray to disorient their victims, and make off with the money in the register.

As a resident of Austin, I like that these young men were caught and I am also happy that they chose to use pepper spray.  In a perfect world, there would be no robberies at all.  If I had a choice between the criminals in my city using non-lethal means to commit those crimes, than using knives and firearms.  This may be trying to put a positive spin on a horribly negative situation, but this does come from someone who is from the Greater Houston area.  The Houston news is constantly featuring those killed by criminals on a daily basis.
