I've heard the police in the UK are less militarized than their counterparts in the US, while we can speculate on whether or not Colonialism put the
families who were more likely to be militant onto American soil away from British soil, we know the UK still has problems with corruption in its
police force and an over-eager reliance on violence to solve the syndromes of their societies problems.
I suggest that the UK is following in the USA's footsteps in terms of upping the arms and leeway they give cops to use them.
