"Thanks for tuning into the evening news. Latest report from the Police Department is that there have been a growing number of reported self inflicted 'wounds' from the new LSD tracking markers. Internal affairs is looking into the matter (while jamming to Floyd of course)"

Unless the DNA is from a Garmin, I doubt this is meant to be a tracking thing. More like "you were there and we know it because we shot our DNA on you" after they find the person using regular police methods.

If my department wanted to take my Sig... they could have my shield as well.

If it blinds the perp, who cares... and there's no such thing as a bystander at a riot. Anyone with half a brain would have left long before the cops got there.

You said you've got cops having grenades thrown at them... WTF!? Anyone passive enough to just except that situation should not be in law enforcement, I don't care what country you live in.
30K cops in my dept and in 7yrs I've never heard of a cop being shot with their own weapon. We also have less than 15 gun fights a year in total. That's in a liberal city of 8 million. Cities with less gun restrictions see even less gun violence.

It's funny how if you tell people the school won't have a fire suppression, they'll loose their minds. Tell them there will be an armed guard... they'll loose their minds.
Modern schools are made of brick, steel and glass. Sure there could be a fire, but the chances of a serious fire are almost nonexistent. An armed guard reminds parents that there are monsters in this world that will kill their children... and they'd rather not think about it and just pretend it won't happen to them.

When it comes to these nonlethal fads... nothing beats a can of OC and an ASP. Spray'em, beat'em, cuff'em.

Just real quick: NO WHERE in the article of the dna gun did it say it would be used exclusively for riots. The whole riot scenario was put forth by a member here

The whole point of my post in the first place was to express my opinion that, on the whole, this thing is going to be limited to very few (if any) useful situations, and it's already been proven that the police can indeed shoot people they weren't aiming at. I can't imagine their aim is going to get better with a PAINTBALL GUN.

No hating on the cops. Just don't misrepresent my words.

I was actually agreeing with you. Special toys for special situations... no one patrols with a beanbag shotgun. I just have no concern for the health and well being of the bad guys. I'm gonna win, no matter what I have to break or put a hole in.

Tell that to Victoria Snelgrove.

I'd say anyone with compassion cares.

So was she a friend of yours or just some poor girl you exhumed with a google search to make a point?
