IMHO the Humanis Policlubber is legimately considered "used" when he
hinders the deployment of his target meta-race (by costing an extra nu
yen and bringing the runner in turned).

This has come up in a couple of the games I've played with Tony and
Caric, and that's the decision we've reached. They can't target my
Policlubber with Even Steven unless he has had his effect on the
recent deployment of a troll (assumedably on their own turn or the one
prior in a multi-player game).

Most people I've played with just declare a shadowrun and the target
Objective in the same breath. CoP would be validly played after
they've said where they're going and before they reveal the first
Challenge on that run.

According to the SRCard Q&A, the abducted Torgo would get fragged as
another has taken his place.
