hope the Denver cops don't dress like the Miami cops


Miami cops when suited look like black robots. everything is black including the helmet and visor. you can't see the cops face. they all look alike, like robots.

I'd hate to see that in Denver. anybody know?

4. I'll tell you why....
I am around a lot of Law Enforcement types.

When they go into their RoboCop mode, they feel omnipotent.


Picture a bunch of pasty-faced, out-of-shape college dudes.

Then picture a drunken frat party.

Same kind of deal.


I know guys who go nuts when they are in their SWAT gear.

BIG difference.

11. The black makes them looks slimmer, camouflaging donut love handles, on the other hand
I imagine they get mighty hot in the Miami summer sun.

White would be cooler but they might resemble the Storm Troopers from Star Wars and beside dirt shows easy.

Brown shirts could be better but it might bring up negative historical parallels.

Psychologically speaking I read once that some interrogation rooms were painted pink because that color has a calming effect on people being questioned, so I believe if they seriously want to calm crowds from breaking in to riots, the police should be dressed in pink.

Codepink might even bring them some donuts while they're serving on crowd control.

17. Do they accesorize correctly?
Like a modest and tasteful string of pearls?

19. That's why "Major" Daley sent his community service officers
out in shirt sleeves in '68. That's how to keep things calm.



To serve and protect.

8. In That Duty And Capacity? I Certainly Don't. Just More Melodramatic Whining Bout Useless Stuff.
But to each their own I guess. But I personally don't give a rat's fat ass what they wear.

14. Nothing to see here.
Hey, OMC, cut & paste smilies seem to be your forte. Here's something for you to chew on, don't eat to much though it can cause a bowel obstruction, but I'm sure you're used to those ;-):

16. Hats and bats...
Bring your cameras everyone.

Every time one of Denver's finest acts up or steps out of line, it needs to go on Youtube!
