Oh. A wooden shield covered with steel wool.

So, fancy taser shields that can be defeated with a squirt gun.

Good to know, since I'm going to be up against the barricades November 4 through whenever...
 
2020-09-25 3:39:53 AM  
Latex paint, saltwater, gimp suits will just turn these into overpriced and less useful riot shields.

"I have an idea, and bare with me here... new weapons/tools to oppress people..."

"GENIUS!!  What do you have in mind?"

"Okay, so, kinda like Captain Americas shield... but instead of throwing it, we cover it with tazer contacts.  So we can shock them while we bash them"

"I love it, order a thousand!"

But seriously - this looks like a modded item in Fallout/Skyrim -- Or an accessory Judge Dredd would have carried.

Preferably the yellow-tinted kind.

Awesome. I can't wait until this monumentally backfires when people start chucking gasoline/diesel/grease bombs at these shields to essentially napalm cops. Which with those nylon uniforms and plastic face shields will melt into their skins needing some nasty skin grafts.

All because some asshole wants to tase protestors, and rioters turn their weapons and shields against them.

We can make taser shields too, it's not alchemy and it's not illegal so... stalefish?

You are now the most prepared of us.
You must lead us.

This is to get the people moving.
Watch some protestor douse themselves with gasoline and stand there with there hands up.

/and watch some cop knowingly tase them.
 
2020-09-25 4:17:33 AM  
Not particularly useful against an insurgency.

this is more of what you need, not light, not cheap, but breathable and concealable.

now we just need someone to demonstrate and post a video

ESD clothing might also work, but likely not as well

/you are all amateurs

Make sure to repeatedly pause the game while firing the Thunder Beam in order to deal maximum damage to the cops.

They've been around for years now. Normally used in prisons for riots and such.

Uniforms haven't been nylon since the 70's and the face shields are high temp stuff that doesn't just melt.
 
2020-09-25 6:22:04 AM  
Taser shields have been around for a long time, we had them back when I was a jail deputy. They're mostly for intimidation, you have to be standing pretty close for the shield to be effective.
 
2020-09-25 6:22:45 AM  
And you're thinking polyester. Nylon wouldn't be very comfortable by itself.

Yeah, the government COULD make sure everyone stays fed and housed...

BUT wouldn't it be more fun to create vast hordes of starving, desperate people then build weapons to brutalize them with?

Throwing gasoline around isn't turning weapons against them.

Don't do this.

Oh good, more militarization of the police to keep the peasants in line.

Just what we needed.

But militarized the police was supposed to keep us safe from sleeper cell alqaeda! We were terrified of terrorists!

Gee who would've thought that republican presidents policy would backfire, everything else he did was so great. Look how Iraq and Afghanistan are stable secular democracies now, the Middle East is stable amd not flooding Europe w refugees and climate change is well under control.

supplying USA police with military grade weapons and defense was never the war on terrorists. it was directly related to looters setting towns on fire in the past. assholes escalated things so violently they got what they wanted. an absolute line of defense. what did they expect?
