Police chief: Omaha should be a safety scissors city.
Omaha Police Chief Todd Schmaderer says even though scissor accidents are up in the city, he said most people shouldn't worry because most of those incidents involved left handed people.
"It's true," said Schmaderer. "Most southpaws use regular scissor and they cut their hand. We have even noticed more left handed incidents in the police departments. We advise citizens not to worry. We are still a safe scissor city. Just if you left handed, then use those safety scissors or something."
This report comes out after criticism to the department. Earlier this year some Pruning Shears caught Omaha Police using excessive force on their cell phone camera. The video shows Omaha Police officers throwing scissors on the ground and kicking and stomping on them. It is unknown if the officers that was involved with the excessive force were left handing. More information as the story unfolds.
