You are skilled at causing fear in those you brutalize.
Prerequisite: Intimidate 1 rank.
Benefit: Whenever you deal nonlethal damage with a melee weapon, you can make an Intimidate check to demoralize your target as a free action. If you are successful, the target is shaken for a number of rounds equal to the damage dealt. If your attack was a critical hit, your target is frightened for 1 round with a successful Intimidate check, as well as being shaken for a number of rounds equal to the damage dealt.
A point to note, Rays and Spell Weapons (eg Spiritual Weapon) count as Weapons for the purpose of spells and effects that affect weapons, including feats that affect weapons. Such as Weapon Specialization. As per the FAQ.
A melee weapon spell that does non-lethal damage, or cast with Merciful metamagic feat, could work with the Enforcer feat. Though I would discuss it with your DM as opposed to rules lawyering him into accepting it.
There is also the Fearsome metamagic feat, similar to Intimidate.
Though with either of the above you have to damage someone for it to work. There is no Intimidation factor for those watching/seeing it happen.
