Riot Cop

I’m working on this idea of images of our times that are iconic. The riot cop seems to be an increasingly iconic image of our contemporary urban landscape. I figured I’d think a little bit about why this image is so scary yet also it kind of caters to my love for science fiction. Isn’t he/she a little bit like one of the stormtroopers from Star Wars? I even spent a little time trying to depict the little bag on the knee with the plastic handcuffs. I remember when my pops was in the police academy and he had a bunch of these running around. He might of even put them on me to show me how they worked! In this age of disposable items it still amazes me someone came up with disposable hand cuffs.
