Dressing the Part: Nov 19, 2011
As some of you might have heard and seen, the police response to the ‘Occupy‘ movement has more in common with totalitarian states than anything vaguely resembling respect for due process and fairness. Police “actions”, and their increased militarization, are making news because their victims are now increasingly white, female, old, educated and certainly not poor.
In light of these developments, I propose that police in the US adopt a uniform that is far more fashionable and authentic to their role in American society. There is no reason to look like a schlub when you can dress in something designed by Hugo Boss– himself.
