Uniform – Uniforms are a symbol of status and overt power. Many times we take for granted the jobs that we have that require a uniform. However, that uniform gives you specific rights and privileges that are not enjoyed by the rest of society. A police officer is allowed to open carry a weapon in many places where weapons are not permitted, simply because of his job. Uniforms carry with them, as well, a certain level of respect and fear. Even security personnel can be very intimidating, even if they do not carry any kind of weapon.
