well, I'd say if you feel you wanted to walk around in armor, well, have at it.Simon of the Playa wrote:a cop standing in said subway could get stabbed or attacked in some, random way.
that applies to EVERYONE...and
by that skewed logic, should we all be walking around looking like a post apocalyptic warrior ninja covered in kevlar scales while toting large rifles?
because i can do that.
if i'm allowed to.....but last i checked, the closure order says i gotta keep mr. blasty at home...
I understand what you say about the weapons, but, it is part of their job to be armed, yes? And rightly so, IMHO.
And, if they are in the subway all day, and in uniform, I'd say they are more of a target, and especially if unarmed.
Considering, even if you reject them related to their jobs, you have to know they are still humans and in that situation anyone would want to be protected, and as safe as possible, it seems.
With the societal disdain for police in general, and the added exposure of them to some of the more "crazies" on the streets and subways, I understand them wanting to be armored.
