UK Company Offers Riot Training Experiences
If you've ever found yourself in the middle of a riot, you know that there is some standard etiquette. If you haven't yet, it's best to learn it before screwing it up. Last year we discovered Zombie Boot Camp, an event hosted by Wish.co.uk which promised to prepare you for the Zombie Apocalypse. We were intrigued by the positive reviews, but to be honest, it seemed a little frivolous at the time. We're on a tight budget, and zombies aren't you know, real. Florida doesn't count.
We're thinking about indulging in Wish.co.uk's new project, though. The company is now offering the UK's first ever Riot Training Experience, and that seems like a good skill to have. Plus, it sounds like a real-life version of the Black Ops: 2 bender we've been on all week. From the site:
In this full throttle experience, the mysteries, intrigues and fundamental steps of basic riot control will be revealed. Who runs at who, good/bad things to wave about and which way up to hold your riot shield.
Wish.co.uk is careful to state that they do not encourage citizens to incite a riot (a criminal offense in the UK), but many nay-sayers are still protesting the event, so you'll want to book your tickets sooner rather than later.
Here's a few pictures from past training experiences that make us even more excited to go:
