After seeing the California Cop Lights I decided perhaps it was to show what types of lights criminals may be using.

The lights shown probably weren't used in the commission of any crimes with maybe one exception but the government felt the need to keep these as evidence or personal property fo a number of years.

You typically don't see flashlights used in crime with the exception of maybe being used in an assault or murder in the case of long metal tube lights such as Mag-Lite or maybe with some ITAR related offense if someone is exporting. That is why you see shipping restrictions on Surefires and the like. I would express my personal opinions as to why it is pointless but that would be preaching to the choir.

The LRI and Streamlight Scorpion X still had juice in the batteries and worked.

Tastefully done letschat. This one could easily go the wrong way if speak of how to perpitrate crime a or b with flashlight x or y were to take place.

I can definitely imagine some uses for that little key chain light if going afoul of the law. The others too but that's from watching tv crime shows in the 1970's. I remember wondering why those fellows on tv never had to bang their flashlight against their palm to get it going good like we mortals had to.
