    You don't already have those in your department?

    Rocket launchers would definitely cut down on high speed chases.

    You see, this is how things get invented! What we need to do is get it set up so the phone receiver is also a defibrillator. Then, the patient calls 911 and saves himself before the cops show up and argue over who's not giving mouth-to-mouth while waiting for the medics.

    Yeah, as long as every officer can have access to them.

    I don't think this point can be emphasized enough.

    But they are sooooooooooooo noisy. Couldn't we use helicopters with giant magnets instead?
    there'd be a surge in Corvette ownership among our clients...

    Benefits of rocket launchers for police.

    A military rocket launcher is superior to other vehicle immobilization devices in my opinion. Rocket launchers have a greater range and are less likely to injure the deploying officer. Those of you who have seen what happened to the officer who was hit by the car while deploying stop sticks know what I am describing.

    Possible drawbacks of rocket launchers for the police.

    Rocket launchers used by police might possibly increase the risk of collateral damage to the public, and officers who miss the vehicle they are attempting to disable would likely cause injury to others.






    Maybe we should stop seriously replying to this sort of post. I can't be the only one who thinks there's an unpleasant ulterior motive here.
    What about the use of PRGs for crowd control. Because you will not be able to get the vehicle mounted MK19 everywhere it needs to go.

    Shouldn't this have been posted in Firearms?

    I'll settle for grenades. I want an M-203 or, better yet, an MK-19.

    BTW, is the military rocket launcher Asian friendly? you know according to Saunders, Asians are small and tiny, so make sure that the launchers are not any bigger/heavier than old LAW system.

    I feel my department is interested and would benefit greatly from the use of rocket launchers. Two questions though: 1. Do they come in magnum? 2. What vest do you recommend since we have to have a level which will protect from our own weapon?
