Metal “Claw” To Catch Criminals
SIR MALCOLM CAMPBELL, noted English auto racer, has invented a mechanical “claw” for autos that may be used by Scotland Yard. Operated from within the car, it can be moved in any desired direction and can be used to grab the spare wheel or bumper of the car it is pursuing. Device is being tested at Hendon Police College in England. If successful, the new device may be placed as standard equipment on the autos used by the police to aid apprehension of criminals.
