So one of your arguments is that Police Officers shouldn't wear medals in case it upsets terrorists?
In my opinion all police should wear their ribbons and a Union Flag/Jack, its our country if you don't like the flag, its tough s***e
It is our policy that we wear our commendations with our class B uniform (regular uniform)....the U.S. flag, specialty team insignia and certain military medals are also acceptable. I currently have 14 or 15 commendations and it's a PITA to wear em every day. Thankfully I wear a class C uniform for K9 so I don't have to deal with the medals on a daily basis. Medals and commendations usually have good stories behind them....most involve pain, terror or loss of flesh in some form or another. To crack on an officer for being proud of the job they do by wearing their achievements is jealously I think. JMO
