That story could just as easily come out of many middle eastern countries right now. I have friends living in those countries, Libya and Egypt especially. My company has offices there and had to evacuate people suddenly last year. Ordinary citizens had to find a way to get expats through checkpoints in a chaotic situation where foreigners, especially Africans, could get shot on sight. It doesn't take much for a civilian to get caught up something. It's still a low probability, but not as far fetched as I once thought it was.

Personally, I just find this stuff interesting. I might want to learn how to pick handcuffs. Or just learn a few random things. I shared it so others who might be interested could do the same. It's certainly no requirement. But if I choose to go on a multi-day hike in the mountains in the future having a good first aid kit which would deal with trauma and prevent bleeding out is a plus.

Pick handcuffs?

Either get a nice slim, flexible bit of plastic to 'jimmy' the latch mechanism or learn to use a bobby pin.

Easier yet, buy a cheap pair of handcuffs with a key. The same design and same key works for all the locks used today. Obvious, and bad 'thing' for the cops to depend on. Might be why so many wish they could use zip ties.

Zip ties work better, cop showed me one time. He said NEVER depend on handcuffs. He retired two weeks, later.

Yep... zip ties are more common now than handcuffs.

BUT... (you know there is always a BUT coming)... there are also plenty of YouTubes on the Web that show how easy one can bust zip ties too.

LOL, there are always ways to get around things. The white police ties are harder to get out of tho. I have not seen those in many places, they are hard to cut, too.

I've seen the video showing escape from zip ties multiple times and keep forgetting the details. I know it involves a shoelace, so I guess I remember enough.

I do not know what these are calling, they are white, narrow, and when you set it, very hard to get out of. BUT, of course there is always a way. LOL, nothing is 100% positive.
