Do cops in Australia carry guns
Absolutely. You basically only ever see ordinary cops with the one model of pistol, which for many Australians can be their only real exposure to firearms. I remember being with family in Turkey, where there are members of the police force open-carrying automatic weapons and having people find it rather strange.
i remember in madrid seeing a squad of four police just vibing with like three assault rifles and a riot shield between them.

Yep.

From the SAPOL wiki entry - Criminal Investigation Officers are issued with the compact version of the semi-automatic pistol (M&Pc). Specialised units such as Special Tasks and Rescue (STAR Group) use other equipment suited to the nature of their duties. SA Police were among the last to carry revolvers as a duty weapon.
OK, because I've been seeing that there have been Black Lives Matter protests in the UK, and I know that the cops in the UK don't carry guns, so that made me wonder what sort of racial injustices the cops in the UK might have been perpetrating

Racially disparate enforcement of television licenses, maybe

The police don't (to the best of my knowledge) enforce TV licences and it's primarily down to strongly worded letters and unenforceable front door visits and fines and the like

also their magical vans that have superpowers

Scappaticci’s history as an IRA sharpshooter gave him an advantage as an agent, and he quickly made his way to the top of the Nutting Squad. The achievement reveals either a tactical brilliance or a profound stroke of luck. The position gave him access to the IRA’s innermost secrets: missions completed and upcoming; arms storage sites; travel and security details; bombing and assassination targets. Over several years he helped foil numerous killings and kidnappings, and the information he provided to the British so dazzled his handlers that they passed it along to Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher herself.

Moreover, his position atop the Nutting Squad made him untouchable. If the IRA leaders ever suspected an infiltration, they reported it to the Nutting Squad—and so to Scappaticci. If his own activities ever drew suspicion, he could simply divert attention by fingering an innocent man. Some British press reports estimate he killed as many as forty people. A former British spy handler who worked at the time of Scappaticci’s rise—a man who now goes by the name Martin Ingram—puts the death toll lower, but still “well into the tens,” including other agents. He said it all fit into the larger British strategy. “Agents have killed, and killed, and have killed,” Ingram told me. “Many, many, many people.”

Under Scappaticci’s close direction, the Nutting Squad killed dozens of people
