What's wrong with wicker riot shields? Wicker is very tough, besides being light and somewhat flexible, so practically unbreakable.

My experience with wicker only goes to baskets and lawn furniture, not weaponry. Yes, I am sure it is good enough as defense against weak hippie fisties, but I am used to cops who demonstrate a greater use of force. If I was planning to riot against police I knew were defended only by wicker, I would bring my axe. (But then I don't live in the inner city, where I suppose axes are not so common.)

Now THAT is more like it. Those kinds of shields can also be used as offensive weapons, to bash skulls and split open faces, just the same as medieval shields could be used. They also might be bullet-proof.

So popdrome, you are saying the wicker shields are historically accurate? Wow, I learn something new every day.

Sheesh, looking over this post I sound like a sadistic ghoul. Sorry. Really, I was just concerned about realistic representation in movies, and it seems my question has been answered. Thanks guys!

Wicker baskets and furniture can withstand years of hard use, and wicker shields can take sticks, stones and even a few blows of an axe or sword. Of course, if you attack a cop with an axe or sword, they have the right to shoot you dead. Besides, they are a LOT cheaper than kevlar.

It sounds like you speak from experience! Are you one of those Society for Creative Anachronism types, re-enacting medieval combat? That always sounded fun to me.

Very true (I have not tried it), but it did not look like these candy-ass Queen Karo cops were packing heat.

I remember that Behind the Scene, it was not what I expected unlike viewtopic.php?f=14&t=319&hilit=mario&start=40 if it was interesting but the video quality was poor.
