Topic: Security Central / Alternative to cell extractions

I’m an average citizen who has no experience with prisons, jails or law enforcement. Having watched numerous TV programs about prisons & jails from all over the US, I find all institutions seem to use a group of staff members, heavily armored, to forcibly remove inmates from cells when needed. Naturally, this ties up a lot of staff resources and potentially exposes them to harm. Its been said by many staff that often the inmates force this action out of boredom ( it gives them some attention and excitement in their day).

Has anyone ever thought of the following ?

When a prisoner needs to be extracted from a cell, flood the cell with CO2, which displaces oxygen and causes the prisoner to loose consciousness. Once the prisoner passes out, a couple of staff could remove the prisoner on a restraint board or chair, with no special equipment and no danger of harm to either staff nor to prisoner.

I think those prisoners who create the need of extractions out of boredom would soon stop, once they realize that if they act up, they will simply be rendered unconscious by gas.

I would appreciate hearing from prison / jail industry workers on this suggestion.

Thank you

Dave J.
