@pinkprius more sad, depressing and hate inducing, but yeah. The muricanism in worldwide police forces is notably similar.
@lerk I don't think it has anything to do with the US. It's just that police forces tend to like fascist stuff, in Europe there are large police conferences where they train for riots and stuff like that.
@pinkprius As far as I observed it, it came from the US.
A few years back seeing police at demonstrations didn't involve Rambo protections/shielding and MP5s. Today that seems to be normal. I just saw it first in the US.
