@Councxxious You’re very right, if combatives always had the manpower to deal with every situation they would have no issues and the tazer would be unnecessary, but this is becoming less and less the case because of an inactivity spiral affecting all departments. Usually a single MTF has to deal with all of CZs and backup, if it comes, takes a long time to load in. Affected are so common to see while in the past they were a more rare event and incredibly powerful from my experience.
SD has 747 members and has 690 sentinels and juniors
I really wish we had that kind of activity but it’s just not the case right now. It’s difficult to ping specific SD because there are so many people in the joint discord, and a majority of the inactive members of either department won’t respond which relies on just SRU who are a fairly small sub group.
I’m totally for regulations if it can be done right and not making it so complex that you’re better off not using it, but It’s super important to look at it from every perspective.
