CSI, Inc. crowd control gas

Azita, we didn't start a petition--- but that would be a good idea. We wrote individual letters; here is the letter I wrote. I never received a response)[Also, CSI, inc. is part of the Carlyle Group]:

Mr. Don Smith, CEO
Combined Systems Inc.
388 Kinsman Rd.
Jamestown, PA 16134

Dear Mr. Smith,

It is my understanding that your company produces "gas" used for crowd control by the Israeli killing machine.

I live in northern Minnesota where a company called Mattracks makes specialized "rubber tracks" which replace normal tires for vehicles; I understand these vehicles are involved in "crowd control" and dispense your gas.

I'm wondering if there might not be some other product you could produce that would assist people who are forced to live under the repression imposed on them by the Israeli killing machine.

Is it your "gas" police departments across the world are using against the protesters at the "G-8/G-20 Summits," at peace demonstrations and marching against the Republican National convention here in St. Paul, Minnesota? And in Tunisia and Egypt?

Would you send me your company's financial statement as well as all pertinent financial information so I could see if the repression of people struggling to be free is profitable or if you are operating your business as some kind of patriotic endeavor?

Is Combined Systems, Incorporated part of a holding of a larger corporation or multi-national corporation or are you just one more "small business" creating jobs?

I am wondering if the outcome of the American Revolution might have turned out differently had the British used your gas against Washington and his troops as they attempted to survive the winter encamped at Valley Forge.

Could you send me the "Spec Sheet" you are required to provide your own workers as far as any dangers to human health concerning the handling of the product you produce and the various chemical elements; I assume this is public information.

Do you have any kind of "advertising brochure" that you use in selling and marketing your product? If so, please send me a copy/s.

Thanking you in advance for your attention to this matter and awaiting your response to my questions;
