Viral video shows students at Barberton High School getting pepper sprayed as part of a class assignment.
Those sprayed can be heard screaming in pain during the video, while individuals off camera (presumably their classmates) can be heard laughing.
One copy of the video of the students being sprayed has been viewed online more than 15 million times.
The students are part of a criminal science class at the high school and received extra credit for participating.
A police officer can be seen monitoring the students apparently to ensure that they are all alright.
"I was shocked honestly and I'm so glad I didn't have that opportunity in high school", Havyn Stiffler, sibling of one of the students, said. The students were pepper sprayed as part of a criminal science class and had to get permission from their parents before they participated. "If you don't want your kid to do it then don't have them do it, simple as that".
Video of the experience was shared on YouTube.
"Stop resisting, please comply", the instructor says in the video while discharging the chemical agent directly in the each student's face. It will cause irritation and a burning sensation to the eyes and nasal area for approximately 30 minutes to 1 hour.
"The intent of the training is to help the students gain an industry recognized credential in the law and public safety course curriculum that is offered by the Ohio Department of Education", Barberton City Schools Superintendent Patricia Cleary told People.com.
But once a few seconds pass, the students on the one end who were shot first start yelling in agony.
