Police are arming themselves with stink bombs to control the next Ferguson.

In Baltimore and Ferguson, police used tear gas and rubber bullets to control crowds. Now they’re turning to something more noxious. The weapon of choice in this case is called Skunk, and Defense One reports that a company called Mistral has been providing it to police departments feeling nervous about civil unrest. Worse yet, there’s only one way to get the smell off your body.
