Why Do D.C. Metro Police Wear Blue Helmets Like UN Troops?


Maybe they wear the U.N. blue for the same reason Obama's brand of red, white and blue is not the blue of the American flag as one might expect, but the sky blue of the United Nations-  D.C., like Obama shows their TRUE colors. - W.E.

Sky blue is the color that United Nation troops wear on their heads, whether helmet or beret:

To my knowledge, DC metro police are the only police in the U.S. who wear the same blue-colored helmets as the UN.
Here are pics of the police riot gear of three U.S. cities: Boston, Dallas, and Seattle. Notice that their helmets are all black in color, not blue.
