SOTO CANO AIR BASE, Honduras — Sergeant Robinson applies an advanced baton technique used to subdue someone who has tried to take away his baton by locking several fingers in place and using the baton as leverage. Sergeant Robinson said some nonlethal techniques seem violent, and may be misconstrued as an abuse of one’s human rights, but if a person resists then security forces members have the right to defend themselves (U.S. Air Force photo/Staff. Sgt. Chad Thompson).
