  • Police (Bullet Proof Vests) vs. Military (Plate Carriers)

    Why do police wear bullet proof vests while people in the military wear plate carriers?

    I’ve been wondering about this. Any ideas?

    Plate carriers are not worn by cops for 2 reasons. One, they are meant to protect from rifle bullets, so they are bulky and heavy, most cops aren't having shootouts with rifle wielding criminals so the extra bulk is not warranted. Two, plate carriers look scary and military, just like AR 15s, the sheeple get spooked.
