If you think the recorded instances of police brutality popping up all over the internet are bad now, just wait until authorities begin using a new set of handcuffs that have just been approved by the U.S. Patent and Trademark office. Not only can they deliver shocks between 20,000 and 150,000 for up to ten second durations or at an “intermittent frequency,” but they can also inject the detainee with sedatives if they’re being extra naughty.
Don’t worry; a loud noise emitted by the handcuffs is designed to “warn” the detainee that he or she better shut the hell up before getting zapped and stabbed with a needle full of horse tranquilizer.
Soon, the police will no longer have to so much as extend an arm to taser the shit out of an individual who is already rendered a non-threat by the handcuffs bounding his or her arms behind the back. Murder will be as simple as pressing a button, literally.
But the handcuffs also record which officer administered what, alongside a reason for doing so, so the media will be able to blame the victim in some way or at least tell us who got off with only one month of docked pay.
This little gem was created by Scottsdale Inventions, who plans to license the technology to a manufacturer that already works with law enforcement agencies.
