Incoming: ZCWO 1/6 scale United States Riot Police Sets A & B - Shawn & Mason 12" figures

Riot police may be regular police who act in the role of riot police in particular situations or they may be separate units organised within or in parallel to regular police forces. Riot police are used in a variety of different situations and for a variety of different purposes. They may be employed to control riots as their name suggests, to disperse or control crowds, to maintain public order or discourage criminality, to protect people or property, to function as a tool of political repression by breaking up protests and suppressing dissent or civil disobedience.

Riot police often use special equipment termed riot gear to help protect themselves and attack others. Riot gear typically includes personal armor, batons, riot shields and riot helmets. Many riot police teams also deploy specialized less-than-lethal weapons, such as pepper spray, tear gas, rifles that fire rubber bullets, stun grenades, and Long Range Acoustic Devices.

ZCWO 1/6 scale United States Riot Policeman "Shawn" 12-inch figure will come with riot helmet with shield, gasmask, police uniform, riot protective gear including body vest with shoulder protection, elbow pads, forearm protectors, leg protectors, police duty belt with pistol in holster, double pistol magazine pouch, handcuff pouch, baton / night stick, radio in holder, gas mask pouch, plasti-cuffs, baton, riot shield, loud hailer, various gloved hands. Riot Policeman "Mason" comes with a paintball gun! Can't decide which one is cooler. These are certainly not the ones seen recently in the civil unrest that lasted over two weeks in Ferguson, Missouri. Those were dressed in military gear and looked like they were going to war with the citizens.
