Recently I was watching the TV show Chuck (funny show) on Netflix. He refused to use a gun and always used a tranquilizer gun on suspects.
The other agents still used a firearm most of the time. It got me wondering,why can't police just use these to take down a suspect/criminal?
They use tasers,and it would save so many lives if police would/could use non-lethal methods.

i think maybe because tranquilizers are drugs and without knowing if a person is on any medication/illegal drug, they wont be able to know if there are going to be serious interactions/side effects.
