This may be helpful although not sure whether the use of pava spray in an enclosed environment will incapacitate you just as much as the prisoner

All good and well, but as with every 'trial' in this beloved country of ours, everything always takes 134 years to "roll-out" for general use... and then banned again within 3 days after the 1st incident as itll be deemed to breach everyones 'well-earned' human rights.

(Spit hoods, anyone)

But yes, if it goes to plan (and if it is a direct burst emission rather than a 'spray', which could engulf us too) then it could be good news for all of us in the future too.

PS, I'm pro wearing bodyworn cameras, which should already be a given anyway imo)

Step in the right direction but the main problem I see is it won’t work on someone out of it on a psychoactive drug......

Will it not? Surely the vision will be impaired which will at least give you a slight upper hand?

Pava may impair vision but not the increased strength of someone on spice or mamba

I’d say it’s better to have it in the arsenal and it’s a positive step in the right direction but more is needed.

Camera vests?
We have always had stab vests to use if necessary.
The cameras are clip on. The same as the police use.
