  •  because dosage is a huge problem (3+ / 0-)

    because interactions with other drugs/chemicals could prove deadly (see alochol)

    because you're talking about a whole new set of training and class work not to mention support for the drug used, guns and darts when departments already struggle for funding

    because most dart guns are one shot with a long reload

    and that's just what I can think of off the top of my head.

    Out of all the officers I've met none of them want to use deadly force in fact most officers will never draw their weapon in anger over the course of their entire career
