Every time I go to the Pac NW I turn on the news talk radio and hear a news report about some eco terrorist group torching houses, destroying construction equipment or otherwise carrying out attacks. It is almost always some group of young white kids with more money in their pockets than is good for them, no real jobs and no need to focus on school to get one. So if I see one of these overprivileged brats walking around in a exterminator get up and spraying people down with who knows what I am under no expectation to assume it is harmless. At the minimum it may be assumed to be destructive to clothing and a skin irritant. That alone warrants resistance, if not lethal then a full blast of OC in the face if needed.
