Ducking for cover

I walked in to work today and noticed that two of the police I passed a couple of streets from Marble Arch were carrying machine guns, presumably as part of the big pre-Olympics security exercise that's going on this week.

For some strange reason I don't find the idea of police carrying machine guns even slightly reassuring, because if they have to use them either they or someone else will be putting a lot of lead into the air, with no guarantee where any strays will end up, and little chance that the police actually have much experience under real urban combat conditions. Yet another reason for me to be SERIOUSLY annoyed by the Olympics...
