They are not always trigger happy
Like most humans, when military officers hold a gun they may feel a rush of power; a strong sense of authority but the good thing is that they have been trained to master a high degree of self-control. This way, they are able to enforce justice and fairness when carrying out their duties. So be as calm and as honest as possible when you meet them. Try not to argue and do whatever they say as long as it is within the boundaries of the law.
However, if you feel threatened at some point, remember to get their names – usually written on the left-side of the breast-pocket – or patrol vehicle number and report to a superior officer and civil society organisation.
