Los Angeles cops plan to beat fewer people with flashlights...

Aw... aren't they nice? That's really thoughtful!

The city's police commission unveiled a plan Tuesday aimed at discouraging officers from using flashlights as weapons, except in emergencies.

Mind you, this doesn't include beating people with their fists or the blunt end of a car... or just plain shooting them. But, hey, it's a start!

(And for those of you wondering, an "emergency" is considered any time they really want to.)
