LAPD get new flashlights too small to be used as weapons

That's right... because of several high-profile incidents where the LAPD (and other police forces) used their large, heavy flashlights to repeatedly bludgeon people, they're being issued smaller, lighter flashlights.

(instead of replacing the offending officers, they're replacing the offending flashlights)

Edit: Yes, the officer in the story was fired, but that's the exception to the rule.
