Sounds like a law suit to me.

and exactly where do police get the medical licenses they need to administer drugs? Talk about dangerous and stupid.

An example below of a different lind of control tool. Frm the Japanese movie "Battle Royale". If you check further, the nect thing can be activated by a person with a remote control to basically explode and sever you neck blood vessels.
I don’t think this design will amount to anything. The modern cuff design has stuck in part because it’s very simple to use, and also very durable. When you start adding more moving parts and gadgets, you have more points of failure, and more things can go wrong when you are trying to get these things on an uncooperative person.
Sounds like an inspired and brilliant idea to me.

This won’t fly.
The simple comparison is to the shock belt, which was going to be all the rage some years ago. A belt with handcuffs, so if a defendant misbehaved in court, he could be administered a paralyzing electrical jolt by remote control.
Well, this was all well and good, except there was more than one signalling device. The judge had one, the prosecutor had one, and perhaps the bailiff had one. Trouble was that you couldn’t tell which one of them pushed the button.
And there is just enough sadism in the criminal justice system so that if you were given one of these belts, you were likely to be shocked, at least once. And not necessarily for a good reason.
So it was decided that such belts should not be used.

Once you are detained in cuffs you should no longer be shot at, tazed, beaten by clubs, or attacked by dogs. But, feel free to shackle "runners" or put the helmet on "spitters". And before you are cuffed its all fair game. And under no circumstance should drugs be used to subdue a cuffed person who you have NO idea what drugs he is already on.
