Sound like too much TV watching goin' on here...
Oh by shooting them with a rubber bullet or a bean bag gun that might stop the criminal from fleeing. We could always release the hounds. But dogs tend to do some actual harm to a criminal when they stop them from fleeing.
What is the purpose of allowing the criminal to flee?

You have obviously never been in combat if you think that enemy soldiers receive medical care. A bullet is relatively painless; perhaps you count that.

We sure can have the enemy dying on our soil. Once upon a time, we did a good job on the British and the American Indians.

Letting PEOPLE die who are detained by our officers is irresponsible. I'm not talking about giving them ****ing braces and cosmetic surgery here - if they are having medical issues, we SHOULD make sure they stay alive. People are people, regardless of how many crimes they have committed.

I 100% agree with strict border enforcement. Build a wall and let them die in their country - sure. But letting them die in our control? Nope. You and I can argue all day that illegal immigration sucks - we'd be on the same side. But you're a ****ing nut if you think our agents should turn their backs on a person in medical distress.
