By "that" I meant this ^^^.
Hey GA82...What do you think of this?
The basic Guardian Angel doesn't really have any squipment to speak of, except a beret of course.
Every group that is out patrolling will probably be carrying a radio for communication if there are other groups out on the same patrol, so they can coordinate. Flashlights and water bottles can be useful. Gloves are a good idea because cities are made of concrete. A first aid kit is sometimes needed. And, of course, a note pad and pen are standard equipment. We have paperwork too.
Most of the equipment shown doesn't really have any use. It is expensive and fragile. Worst of all, it's a pain in the ass to have to carry it in your hands or on your person, and just gets in the way or gets broken. Most veteran Guardian Angels don't carry much more than the basics.
The weapon-like items have only limited use. If the criminal has a gun, you are likely to get hurt or killed. If they don't, you could be committing misdemeanor, or even felony, assault. Most likely though, they aren't durable enough to function for very long.
Most equipment is useless unless you have trained with it extensively. It's also likely to convince you that you have more capability than is actually the case.
The silly clothing is actually a good idea. It lets everyone know you are there. Most people will be glad to know they aren't alone out there, and the criminals will know there is someone else out there they will have to reckon with. The purpose of the GA uniform is to act as a visual deterrent to crime. The creeps know we are going to physically intervene if they try to hurt someone.
There are many "Real Life Super Heroes" all around us, it's just that usually we fail to notice them and the brave and selfless acts they do every day.
