    Nope I was having flashbacks to the 60s in the deep south when I first read that idea

    Yep the possibility of underlying health risks make the use of chokes difficult as you say not to mention put a single officer at risk getting that close to a subject, it's normally go in mob handed and pin or if alone distance and taser much safer and less risky for the officer

    Not to mention the police approach seems to be if in a 1 on 1 or 2 on 1 situation to control the subject at distance rather than close range as it's safer for the officer, all their tools allow this; spray, taser, even the baton allows distance from the subject this would go completely against this and asks the officer to get really close to a violent assailant in order to subdue them

    That's another dodgy thing about the study. Presumably there were not many people with COPD, high risk of stroke, severe heart problems or advanced osteoporosis in that questionnaire.

    I honestly cannot work out if you're serious or lockdown has got you so bored you're arguing crazy points for the hell of it. :)

    You mean literally like a dog-catching pole?
