Hi-Tech Gloves Hold the Key to Fighting Knife Crime
« on: August 28, 2009, 01:44:12 AM »

I just found this story from a Scottish news source.

Seven pairs of the specially-designed gloves, costing about 200 a pair, will be tried out for a month in Strathclyde and central Scotland. The battery-operated gloves allow officers to scan an individual for weapons with the fingertips or the palms of the hands. If metal is found, the glove, which is made from stab-proof Kevlar, starts to vibrate at the wrist.

What do you think?  Personally this sounds like it would fit perfectly into a politically correct cluster f*ck; costing the tax payer loads of money and the cop still gets stabbed.  Or, what happens if they search Arnold and run their fingers through his hair?  That metal plate is going to send the vibrations of those gloves through the roof!

Hmmm...just like the UK to give the bad guy a reach around if he has a knife down his pants.  Make him feel good for carrying a knife.

So, its another version of a metal detector. I see no problem with it at all. I use a metaltec from time to time set for vibrate and find it a usefull piece of kit.

canuck- sense u actually use something like that you should know-just sounds a little shakey to me as the PO may be concentrating on the equipment instead of the opponent-what do u think?

Extremly good point WW (ELB) (SOL) and one that is often over looked! I have met many people that will forget to use thier brains and instead reply on the technology that they are using. This device is an aid to the person and not a replacement to good officer safety techniques, which includes thinking!. A metal detector only detects...metal. It would be foolish to think that the subject may not be concealing a plastic or ceramic blade.

The device will never be a replacement for proper search techniques

Personally I think I'd rather scan a guy for weapons and have stab/slash proof gloves on than scan a guy for weapons and not.

Maybe only those charged with making such searches will appreciate the benefits?
