BeiLin's Journal Entry 12
I have been thinking on our recent victory in thwarting Feng Xiao-shi. He was corrupt and a criminal, deserving of justice. We were able to bring him to that justice, without taking his or another’s life. That is the part that leaves an impression on me. Death for him would have been too lenient a punishment. He need pay for his crimes, and for a long time. This has me thinking, what if literally, physically, the police had a way to bring these high profile criminals to justice? Not to the kill them, but capture them and bring them in for sentencing before the Earth King himself. And what if bending would allow that to happen? I know this all sounds cryptic, but what I am trying to say is this: earth is the strongest, most stubborn element. What better way to immobilize and capture someone. I believe that I can, based on the bending forms and kata I know, generate a new kata; one that focuses on capturing one’s opponent in lieu of attacking them. Imagine an entire police force trained with the skills to use earth bending to capture dangerous criminals. It would certainly be a start to fixing the corruption in this once great city. If anything it may prove useful just for bringing in suspects for questioning, but I believe it would have much larger applications. Just something to think on.
