In my ongoing struggle to stop worrying about politics and political polls, I created a poll at my university with a question similar to this one, only the original is more detailed and has more facts along with it.
We got talking about the forces of authority in different countries and their enforcement of the law. One of my classmates brought up the Canadian police and poked fun at how the mounties there wear bright red uniforms and ride horses. That got me thinking about violence and how its dealt with in different nations, and possibly the image of law enforcement.
Is the 'image' (uniforms, transportation, etc.) of the police related to how much violence exists in a nation?
Before you answer the poll question, you might want to ask yourself this question: "or is the image relatively the same across the world?"
I want to the know the general opinion of people here. Your explanation can be as detailed or as simple as you want it to be.
I'm not sure how similar this poll might be to others, if it is, then I apologize and I guess the mods can take it down if this question has already been asked.
