Should Cities Use Mounted Police?
The police have long since become the favorite punching bag of BLM, Antifa and, of course, liberal mayors and “progressive” DA’s. The complaint is that cops are “overmilitarized,” insufficiently accountable, and too ready to use force, among other things. I have not yet heard specifically an attack on the idea of mounted police, but you don’t have to be a genius to know it’s coming: The use of horseback policing is too intimidating and too likely to panic the ubiquitous “mostly peaceful” protester.
On the other hand, a sufficiently amiable stallion might be able to get this dour opinion turned around.
