This is a story out of Mumbai, India where traffic cops are going to be issued batons to handle irate motorists. Traffic in the big city is terrible and apparently law enforcement officers bear the brunt of driver anxiety, sometimes violently.
You can read the rest of the story HERE.
The article goes on to say "the decision was taken given the rising number of assaults on traffic police officers. 'We do not have sufficient guns and moreover, guns cannot be used in every situation. To tackle irate motorists, we have decided to provide them with batons.'
This move was taken after senior traffic police officers claimed that before the constables were given weapons, at least one traffic policeman was assaulted in a week. However, after being given the weapons there have been no assaults on traffic constables."
