“Trooper, come here!” the Republic officer calls to me.
“Yes sir, what do you need?” I reply
“How much crowd control training have you received?” he asked.
“Standard training, Sir. My unit has been trained in riot control, how to deal with unruly crowds on hostile worlds, general policing and non-violent mob disbursement techniques”
“Good, Good. Gather two other troopers and report to this location immediately. This is a very important assignment involving keeping an unruly group in line for the next few hours.”
I gather the other troopers and we make our way to the location. It is worse then we could have ever imagined. For the next four hour we are constantly keeping order in lines, calming frayed nerves, stopping the group from entering unauthorized areas and answering the hundreds and hundreds of question they kept pelting us with.
I have never been so exhausted after a mission.
We got a photo at the end of the day.
Guess which one was the officer’s kid.
