Posted: 7/15/2009 by Floyd in Labels:

Apparently to deter the would be crooks Absa Bank one of the African's largest financial institution has installed cameras and pepper spray canisters on 11 of it's machines in the Cape. You might be saying to yourself what if this thing malfunctions? And it did exactly that;

Recently, the plan was theoretically executed to perfection in the town of Fish Hoek, but the recipients of the pepper spray burst were innocent maintenance workers instead of attempted thieves. The repairmen had to seek immediate medical attention.

I mean think about it,,anything could happen to cause these things to malfunction and seriously injure someone whether it be a maintenance worker or just a customer making a with drawel and would not count on a visit to the emergency room.
