  1. This is an excellent example of why large cities should have mounted units. There are just certain places that a patrol car cannot operate and a patrolman on bicycle or foot just doesn’t have the same ability to maneuver through a crowd the way a man on horse does. (Plus nothing out there matches the ability of a line of horses to disperse a riot.)

    Sadly, the city of Portland disbanded our mounted unit a few years back.

    1. Why would it frighten a well trained horse? Horses can be trained to deal with gun shots (and obviously cop horses should be) — sirens would just be one more noise to train for.
