#2 Do they twitch and drool more, or less?

#3 Issue out some of those old Webley's. A .455 round or two should gain their immediate and undivided attention. Bringing that pistol grip lanyard ring squarely down on the back of a head is also an attention getter.

#4 the problem is with people who are wildly emotional. maybe because of personal problems, or because of drugs. i just heard about an incident where CHP officers in CA used a taser 8 times on a women - because she was out of control. but every time she was hit with the taser, she just fought back harder. some people will do that. so you wind up getting an escalation. in the story here, the woman's heart stopped beating after the #8 taser shot and the officers had to revive her. she lived.
the issue of non-lethal weapons is a very tough problem for the police. there is no perfect weapon out there that gets the job done.
