A picture is worth a thousand words and something like this speaks volumes to me. Grateful that I live where police don't need to carry this much firepower for everyday police duties.

You're right, they should just show up with their trusty tazer just like any other cop out there in the world.
That'll totally kill terrorists.

Seriously if the cops and national guard in the US got to walk around like this we'd have a lot less problems in the states. I mean really... An RPG?! Sorry... Sorry. RPGs. I don't think I'd jaywalk ever again let alone really break the law.

In countries like Afghanistan, police are essentially another military force,and as such are equipped in the same ways. American soldiers carry AT-4's, Afghani soldiers carry RPG's.
