Riot Reduction Gear

If officers’ riot gear was made to look funny, very very funny, then protestors would fall over laughing at the sight. Having curled up into harmless fetal balls of hysterics, protestors would not need to be whipped into submission with rubber chickens.

Slightly less funny looking riot gear (the prototypes) would at least cause protestors to stop and stare.

The Ministry of Silly Walks will be consulted to develop a marching procedure.
