Grapplin’ With the Grappler February 6, 2017

Posted by geoff in News.

Retired Geezer wanted me to post this video of a car-grabbing device for use in high-speed police pursuits. To which I say, “Are you the boss of me?” Uh-oh.

Curse you, RG, and your Svengali-like powers!

Um. Does this mean that future movies won’t have car chase shoot-outs with glass and blood being sprayed all over?

What will we all do for entertainment!!!???

Dammit. This is going to make my life so much harder.

Lets start a gofundme page to buy one for Sobek.

(thanks for posting this geoff)

I want one of those just for regular traffic.

This looks like a really promising idea. And you know what’s funny? The police are supposedly a hyper-violent group that just wants to harass minorities and whatnot, but they sure do spend a lot of time, effort and money trying to come up with effective less-lethal options.

Which drives me crazy. The ACLU complains, “your tazers sometimes kill people (who have heart conditions and just snorted a huge bag of cocaine)! We will sue you until you stop using tazers!” But that means the cops have one fewer less-lethal option, making it more likely they use their pistol. Is that really an improvement?
