Crowd Control

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.

trooper bring kids to work day

Guess which one was the officer’s kid.


Lt. Cmdr Oneida said...

Gee hard to tell, but my guess is the kid with the hat. I hear the Academy is taking them young these days, but wow, that is young :)

Vegeta said...

I thought it was the one that was not paying attention and looking away from the camera

Lt. Cmdr Oneida said...

lol at Vegeta, though I have to admit, that was my first thought too

Dark Jedi Kriss said...

Me too...

Skywalker said...

The one not paying attention... I used to do that in class... *snorts*

Legolas said...

Cows are evil. Keep that in mind.

Professor Xavier said...

I'm going to guess the blonde kid.

Just playing the odds.

We have a new forum, btw, and would love to have you sign up-

The one looking away will probably grow up to be a TIE pilot. I'm just guessing.
