Yes indeed the NATO Summit.I hate to ask this, but I've been out of touch for a bit. Can you give some background on what was going on in Chicago when these were taken? Or was this like some mundane occurrence there?? Wild photos!
EDIT; Nevermind, NATO summit?
http://www.armytimes.com/news/2012/05/ap-veterans-throw-medals-nato-summit-protest-chicago-052112/I'm on my blackberry at the moment but there was a big deal where a bunch of veterans threw their medals. At whom I'm not sure. If no one posts the youtube video I will when I get home.
It's basically a mobile barricade. They line up and 1 cop is basically taking place of 3 with interlocking bikes.Don't know how effective bike mounted police would be fighting occupy-type rioters. Using a shield and baton would be tough while trying to ride.
Horses have done poorly in combat since the Poles tried to use cavalry troops against tanks and machine guns in WW2. Against tear gas and molitov cocktails, the worse the horses could do is trample a few innocents underfoot.
Some protesters are calling for the dissolution of NATO, the 63-year-old military alliance.
I could live with the above happening.
