London Riot Police = Hoplites

August 9, 2011

As I was watching the third day of riots in London that started over a fatal shooting of an alledged drug dealer, I noticed the police there look like they were part of an ancient Greek army; more specifically they look like hoplites who were citizen-soldiers.

I thought I might add the missing piece to the police uniform.
