Apparently compliance is achieved using such techniques as pepper spray and tasers.
See the Creekside1 blog regarding Ashley Smith [LINK]
Keep in mind that tasers (M26 and X26) are designed to incapacitate, achieved with waveform currents reportedly about 2000 times what would be required to cause intolerable pain.
So if pain compliance is the goal (ignoring for the moment all the issues swirling around that, addressed below), then at least realize that perhaps tasers (designed to incapacitate) are not a reasonable and appropriate device for pain compliance.
Years ago, there was a Canadian Moment TV ad (public service / history) where Canada's first female MP (Agnes Macphail) brought a prison whip to Parliament and snapped it in order to make her point about inhumane punishment methods in Canadian prisons. Perhaps it is time for a group of modern MPs to get their brave faces on, visit some prisons, and see what's what.
Whips / electronic whips (tasers) - what's the diff?
Seriously, what's the difference?
Hey MPs, your country is rolling backwards. Did someone leave it in neutral?
