Recently there was the problem of Christopher Dorner who was a former LAPD police officer and ex-United States Navy reservist who went rogue and killed police and innocent civilians. Dorner had small arms training, demolition, ordnance and survival training.
The technology will soon exist to routinely enhance people’s minds and bodies using a wide range of chemical, neurological, genetic and behavioral techniques.
* Greater strength and endurance.
* Enhanced thinking.
* Better teamwork.
* New classes of genetic weaponry, able to subvert DNA.
There will also be different kinds of exoskeletons and other gear that amplifies the capabilities of soldiers.
Containing and managing one rogue super-soldier
Containing and managing one rogue super-soldier would be more difficult than the Dorner situation.
Drones are being introduced to law enforcement in the United States.
The pieces are coming together for hunter killer laser armed drones.
* Super high resolution drone mounted cameras
* Laser armed drones
* 150 kilowatt or more powerful lasers
* An open ended legal policy for the use of drones for targeted killing
So it seems the civilian and police response to supersoldiers would have to mirror military combat by calling in precision airstrikes. Lasers and weapons with more precision and less collateral damage would be needed to minimize societal disruption.
Then there would be the issue of managing the surveillance and drone weapons.
I believe there are the fables about cat eats a mouse, a dog eats a cat, a tiger eats a dog, and that would apply to the escalating weapon management problem.
There will be enhanced drones for police and enhanced weapons for police. SWAT was created in response to more powerful weapons available in society. There is also the national guard. Drone capabilities will be beyond what the super-soldier will have. Although a super-soldier(s) would try to access those weapons as well.
A large number of rogue supersoldiers would end up with a Mexican cartel style situation or something like the combat glimpsed in the Terminator movies.
