Police Baton

(quote) Present day law enforcement standards require that a minimum of force be used to subdue criminals and scofflaws. “Police brutality” is a very sensitive issue with police departments and minority and disadvantaged groups alike. It is not uncommon to observe apprehended criminals with massive injuries caused by insensitive and overly zealous police officers wielding nightsticks in an indiscriminate and callous manner. Therefore, modern day batons should be somewhat flexible, so that they may render miscreants helpless without inflicting serious injury. (end quote)

(From U.S. Patent # 5180164, filed 1991)
