The upcoming Olympics in China have and will produce a lot of headlines. China has already been noted for their specially-made Bird's nest arena in Beijing, the largest fireworks display in the world, a controversial logo... and now, a 100,000-man security force.
Included in this army are the members of the Jinan Special Weapons and Tactics team. Their preferred method of transportation? The ever nerdy Segway, only with an all black makeover and automatic weapons. Ironic when you stop to think about the peace and good will in which the Olympics is supposed to represent.
