to reduce the lethal aspect while maintaining the concussion ability it's intended to have. these type of weapons are meant to be used by police
officers, not a blunt weapon ready to smash and kill.
also leather is less likely to bruise or cut the skin therefore leaving less visible marks.
rubber was the main substitute for leather, but in colder climates what is soft rubber becomes pretty solid aswell, this does not happen with
moral of the story: it's alright for police to beat up people as long as they don't kill them or leave too many visible marks.
you would be surprised with the ways police officers learn to inflict pain without leaving a mark, from kicking you with thick blankets to punching
you through a phone book.
and i was told this by an officer himself after i told him i did not know what he wanted to know and i wasn't gonna start knowing it just because he
might beat me up, this after his interrogation tactic became putting his tac gloves on trying to scare me.
police logic and investigation rely alot on physical coercion and covert violence or fear induction.
but when you're innocent you have nothing to fear
