    When these devices were brought in we were assured that they would only be used by firearms officers in situations of immediate danger to themselves or the public. Indeed, before the Home Office (esp Jacqui) began pushing them for all police officers the met was reluctant to see them used more widely because they knew what would happen.

    Now we see the signs of function creep. They are rolled out to non-firearm trained police and they are being used to torture people into compliance as they are in the US.
