Have you noticed the trend? Do city police officers look different than they used to? I haven’t been paying close attention, but it’s starting to stand out more to me now. Those nice clean cut police officers in your neighborhood are starting to look more and more like mean don’t mess with me military personnel.
What happened? Where did my Norman Rockwell police officer go? Are the police supposed to be warm and inviting, or cold and intimidating? They used to wear bright blue friendly shirts and a smile.

Last but not least they are donning military crew cuts or going to a shaved head.
