After posting a photo of pink handcuffs to their Facebook page, the Greenfield, Massachusetts police department has started to get some critics online. The department announced they will use pink handcuffs and wear new pins for October, Breast Cancer Awareness month. The Department posted a photo on Facebook reading "Officers of the Greenfield Police Department have 'gone pink' in order to raise awareness for the disease! ... 'ARREST BREAST CANCER - UNLOCK THE CURE'".
