The Bola or Boleadora
Last Updated on 15 September 2011
They are most famously used by the South American gauchos. Gauchos use bolas to capture running cattle or game. Depending on the exact design, the thrower grasps the bolas either by one of the weights or in the nexus of the cords. He gives the balls momentum by swinging them and then he releases the bolas. The bola is usually used to entangle the animal's legs, but if thrown with enough force, they have been known to break bones.

Notice I responded in context to the claim that "lethal force" be used?
Side effects of medications are well established.
I didn't claim that lethal force not be used.
As to personal responsibility? Start holding the medical profession to account to the same standard of accountability and criminal and financial sanctions and you might see less "loose cannons" running around shooting people.
MKUltra and mind programming is another avenue we could discuss; you know....nothing like an event to bring about more draconian laws and curtailment of freedom for the other 99% of law abiding citizens.
