Police state

Capitalist media frequently refer to socialist countries like Cuba or North Korea as "police states." I haven't been to North Korea, but I have been to Cuba, and I can tell you that you'll never see a scene like this at a Cuban university:

This is, in fact, not a "live" situation, but a drill on the campus of San Jose State University in one of the most peaceful large cities in the United States, San Jose, CA. But the point is not that this was "real," but to see how the campus police (campus police!) are equipped in this country.
