South Korea has been promoting the upcoming G20 like they are about to host the World Cup again. However, their preparations have not been all KPOP collaborations and streaming banners.
The G20 always seems to attract the world's craziest (and violent) protesters. Korea itself already has a world class league of domestic protesters. They also have a police force and riot control squad to rival them.
The South Korean police force engaged in extensive training exercises to prepare for the upcoming G20. I suppose they took and published these photos to try and intimidate the anarchists? The demonstration was on Oct 4th. Here are a couple. Follow the link for all of them.
You can't see it, but this guy actually broke all these slabs with a single toothpick sticking out of his mouth. (j/k)
In the event that officers are down and anarchists are holding dangers pieces of wood, they are practicing their flying chop skills.
I'm not sure about the next photo. These guys don't look very coordinated at all. And what is up with the guy with the squeegeeing extender?
Oh, yeah. This is what I'm talking about. I bet that stuff is the real deal and not sugar glass.
Here are some police officers dressed up as fake protesters to demonstrate their amazing crowd control abilities.
This looks like fun. Maybe I'll join in on the protests. Wait... I bet it's going to be really cold. Turning the hoses on would be really mean.
