Dead man switches and British STK policy

In one of my earlier posts I ruminated about the possibility of a wireless heart monitor defeating the British shoot to kill policy. I am surprised that any shoot of kill policy can be used without martial law since Dead man's switches have been known since the industrial age began and have already appeared in suicide bombings according to Wikipedia. It would seem to me that this policy would have a remarkably low possibility of achieving success more than once. This policy that is now known to future terrorists will only ensure that eventually confrontations using lethal means will result in triggering of whatever explosive, chemical or biological weapon they have weaponized.
