Chinese Anti-Terror Segway Commandos!

The latest innovation in Chinese crowd control:
From Xinhua via our friends at China Car Times comes the above photo, showing Chinese counter-terrorism forces going through drills as they prepare to crush any dissent terror threat that might arise during next month's Olympic Games. The black ninja suits, fritz helmets, body armor, and submachine pistols all fit the profile of a specialized group like this. But... Segways?
I am starting to see a lot of cops in DC riding around on these too. Somehow it ruins their tough guy image...

This has to be the most cosmetic 'innovation' in law enforcement I have ever seen.

Looks like some sort of "Cobra" formation straight out of GI Joe
