Petrol Bombs!!!

By ChristopherA
I was fortunate enough to see police officers being trained to deal with outbreaks of disorder, including them experiencing what it is like to be petrol bombed. These are genuine petrol bombs, to give the officers the real experience and faith that their kit will protect them. I hope to publish a few more fo these in the next few days.

Been away from the site a couple of weeks, due to being away and a large family gathering!

Thank you for your votes for my last offering, "Wild Daisies"' and a special thank you to Ron (rontear) and Dave (Doverpic) for their valued User Awards.

Stay safe all.

That's a wow shot - fantastic. This is the kind of shot I love - not reliant on any post-processing, of great interest, terrific impact - super composition (leaving incomplete people on the left and right and at the top, and viewed from slightly above) - again wow. On closer inspection we see some heat perturbation (I can't think of the proper term for this right now) in front of the man behind reminding us how hot it must be for them in all that protective gear. If anything I would not have stated that this was a training exercise and left us all guessing! Well done.
