Handcuffs Day - February 20
Handcuffs Day is happy if you are a law-abiding citizen, but if you have a criminal background, this day may not be so happy for you ....
Handcuffs Day is the anniversary of the worldwide patent-pending patent registration, the handcuffs invented by George A. Carney, on February 20, 1920.
The new design of criminal restraints has made the lives of police officers easier. The new handcuffs were lighter and easier to use than the previous handcuffs.
The original purpose of the handcuffs is to restrain criminals so that they cannot escape, but some people find other uses in them such as magicians making an appearance of Houdini-inspired handcuffs, or for intimate BDSM-style relationships.
In Japan, if you are photographing someone with their hands handcuffed, you should blur (pixelate) your hands if you publish the picture on TV or in the press. This is because of the case where Kazyoshi Miura, a Japanese businessman accused of murdering his wife (not the footballer), claimed in court that publicizing his hands in handcuffs had created prejudice in the trial he was guilty of.
Even in France it is forbidden to broadcast images of people handcuffed, or otherwise coerced.
In Hong Kong, people who are handcuffed and led by police are given the opportunity to put a black bag on their head.
