I don't understand why they need to use tazers. Just sit on the guy. If he died by being zapped he obviously wasn't in the best of health to begin with and I don't see why it was necessary.

Or worse, PCP. They'll break their own arms trying go break restraint and keep on fighting. Hard.

What about tranq darts? Don't seem to see those used anywhere.

because you can't use them. Russia tried gassing a building. 150+ died.

Same problem - unintended deaths.

Tranquilizer guns use valium family, antipsychotic or opiates, and a "safe" dose is so many milligrans per kilogramof body mass....

"Pardon me Mr. whacked-out crazy person. Would you mind stepping on this scale so I can determine a tranq dose to shoot you with? Thank you - have a nice day!"

....and if you get the dose wrong it's either ineffective, they overdose or they go into a respiratory arrest. .

This is what happened in the Moscow theater hostage crisis - the Russian Spetsnaz special forces used Fentanyl gas, an opiate, during the rescue and 128 of the 129 civilians that died did so from the tranq.

Like was mentioned on the first page, there is no safe ways to disable a person.

^With this I fully agree.

To the other mob above: I was merely making an observation. That the first two people to respond, after I did, were who they were, does not surprise me at all! As per the quote below, that was my reference! And please don't give me that bull**** that "guns don't kill people its people" crap, the use of something like this causes unnecessary deaths, end of story!

I have a reputation for being pro-guns now? Or just for being a ****?
