Police Like You're Bruce Lee
- A Northern California town is tapping into its inner Kung Fu master and will be equipping its police force with the favorite tool of Bruce Lee.
The Anderson Police Department will be offering up nunchucks to its 20-person force as an alternative to batons in what the department hopes will be a better non-lethal alternative to batons, according to the Los Angeles Times.
The department is hoping that nunchucks, which are essentially two small batons connected by a rope or a chain, will allow an officer to detain suspects without having to strike them with the blunt force that a baton requires.
Of course, ours would be made of balsa wood and dental floss. Also, no contact with subjects above the ankle would be permitted lest you actually defeat an attack. The Bruce Lee "Hai!" would be required however.
