British massively stocked with Baseball Bats, Police Telescopic Tonfa etc.


The latest riots in London and other British cities revealed one interesting side effect: huge increase of sales some "Sports & Leisure" gears.

The sale of baseball bats via the UK branch of online marketplace Amazon jumped over 5,000 percent just in 24 hours, just couple of days after riots started.

The £17.15 Rucanor aluminum baseball bat jumped from 6,500th in sales to 125th overnight, for the 5,000 percent improvement in sales that Amazon's UK site is reporting.

And additional fact worth to be mentioned – the British don’t play baseball.

Also posting huge jumps in sales are the Military Police Telescopic Tonfa, an all-metal police baton, and 5 other kinds of both metal and wooden baseball bats. The top 7 "Movers and Shakers" in's "Sports & Leisure" category are all weapons that could presumably be used in riots, or as defence against looters.

It really would be very interesting to know the figures: how many sales was made for defence reason and vice versa.

I agree with the above comments. This is the cneiztiry attempting to arm itself.They should start marketing them as Flash Bats. (in both the UK and US Sales will explode.The short term solution to the problem is really a Flight 93 mentality. Sa
