Of course police and fire fighters wear uniforms so their parades look much more impressive than a thousand guys in mack jackets, workboots and hardhats.
Problem is, if I don't show up to work, I don't get paid. Also, I doubt that taxpayers will fly me across the country to one of these 'show of force' propaganda displays, nor should they be expected to.
