Mounted Police


These policemen are mostly for attracting tourists. But at times they use them against football hooligans around stadions. If you look at the picture carefully you can see they even have a sword. But I never seen them using it. Maybe when they will have to arrest the Highlander one day:)

Hah! Policemen in my day's pic, too. :)
And now in Helsinki there is a lots of horse shit on the streets, but haven't seen any horses(+policeman on it) on these couple of days... I guess I am on the move in the wrong time. ;)

Here also horses are used to calm the athmosphere in big happenings, but our policemen doesn't have sword.. just a rod, I think. :)
