Cross an Ocean

SO I was out walking around London today, and I saw a fair bit of the London cops roaming around. What really struck me, is the difference in the equipment that they have strapped to their belts.

In the US, the cops have all sorts of unpleasant things strapped to their waists - guns, spare magazines, handcuffs, the baton thingies that they use to beat civilians with and god knows what else. Today, in London, I saw cops walking around, and attached to their belts they all had water bottles and First-Aid kits.

It really is amazing the difference it makes when you cross an ocean.
