Colbert Sets Up Demonstration to Pepper Spray a 10-Year Old Boy (VIDEO)

'The Colbert Report'At 4'10' and 84 years old, you might not think the woman pepper-sprayed at the Occupy Seattle event deserved such treatment, but Stephen Colbert was assured when authorities said that pepper spray is no more harmful for children or the elderly than it is for adults. So he set out to prove this on 'The Colbert Report' (Weeknights, 11:30PM ET on Comedy Central).

He invited a 10-year old boy to come up to the desk and then prepare to get pepper sprayed. After all, if it's good enough for great-grandma, than it's good enough for this innocent young man. Of course, no one was actually hurt, and especially because Colbert mock-sprayed himself, but it was a strong visual representation of how ridiculous the statement was. If only they'd offered the old woman some Gogurt.
