At that time, Federman was only in danger of harming himself maybe. These actions were based on the initial decision of one Sgt. Decisions made to implement certain actions such as the OC spray from outside was not a great idea considering there didn’t seem to be an immediate and sound way to subdue Federman after the deployment.
