Why Are Cops Allowed to Wear Political Symbols?

Have you ever noticed police officers wearing Canadian flags with a blue stripe on their bulletproof vests? Well, not only are these patches racist, they’re also quite likely illegal.

In 2014, the Montreal Police Brotherhood, a union for police in the city, asked its members to stop wearing their uniform pants and instead wear whatever pants they wanted, as a pressure tactic against cuts in their pensions. During the last four years, people got used to seeing officers wearing a random assortment of pants, mostly camouflage cargo pants that became known in the media as “clown” pants.
