    The other day I was in a roadside stand I found and purchased a stick weapon known as a com faq. It is an ancient Thai weapon about 14 inches long. it is 4 sided like a table leg and is made of varnished teak, is taperd and has a lanyard to make it easier to retain. About 20 years ago many people carried these weapons in rural areas for defense, and their used to be a tv show here called Com faq about a com faq expert who fought gangsters. There were some good sequences of people training to use the com faq, though the show itself was ridiculous. In one episode gangsters were firing at the hero, and he was batting the bullets away with the com faq.

    Band Member Defends Herself with a Baton

    I'm interested in this thread because I've been collecting these kinds of incidents and will include them in my blog.

    Here's one.
    A 17 year old band member was walking to school one morning when two muggers attacked her from behind. They tried to grab her coat and demanded money. She punched one in the nose, kicked the other in the groin, and then began beating them with her marching band baton. Both men fled the scene and are being sought by police.

    Miami airport screener accused of attack after jeers at genitals

    A Miami airport screener, agitated at continued ribbing after colleagues saw his body parts in an imaging scanner, attacked a colleague, police said.

    Leaving aside the make-your-own-joke part of this story...are security screeners actually issued batons? If so, are they trained in their use?
