Interesting story in Buzzfeed by Rosalind Adams: The American Father And Son Exporting Tear Gas To Hong Kong: “A BuzzFeed News investigation found low-paid American workers producing tear gas in potentially dangerous conditions. It’s then shipped to Hong Kong, where it’s used against pro-democracy protesters.”
The father/son duo, says Ms. Adams , are Jim and Scott Oberdick. The company is Nonlethal Technologies.
Isn’t it lovely to think that even in these times of tension, American capitalists and Chinese autocrats can still find a common cause?
