When watching filmed ride-alongs of police in action chasing BG's through streets and alleys I've often wondered why they never use a bola to shorten the chase.

Then it occurred to me that maybe some do.

Does anyone here know of anywhere that they use bolas to stop fleeing crooks?

I think that your thinking about the Argentinian Police, on the Pampas riding on horseback. I really could not see a US LEO even trying something like that. They could kill someone quite quickly with that thing.

Well, they do come in different sizes and weights. And the idea is to tie up their legs, not kill them.

The first time a BG busted a tooth falling while running there would be a lawsuit.

Yeah. Crooks rights! :mad: :mad: :mad:

Altho I do like the first part of Miranda. "You have a right to remain TOTALLY and INTERMINABLY silent." :D

Cross reference the lawsuit thought with the thread where a BG with a knife lunged at the cops and got shot. A "my poor baby never hurt anybody" lawsuit is coming soon in that case too I'll bet.

Yeah, and cross reference the notion that it's better to stab a cop than to crack a slime's tooth with any standard of intelligent humanity. :mad: :mad: Or paying a slime lawyer to get 12 certified fools to say it's OK, to an even lower standard of intelligence. :mad: :mad: :mad:
