The new Peruvian Riot Police gear photo is spreading across the internet like wildfire.

It's kind of hot (in addition to likely being toasty).

Oh, um... wow.

It's definitely got that hawt-fascist sort-of look going for it, doesn't it?

And it *looks* like it'll protect the cops very well - an important message to send to a pack of rioters, I'm guessing...

All that semi-gloss makes them look like action figures, though.

It's not a pic of toys, it's a pic of the Peruvian Independence Day Parade.

Wow, there's certain... I don't know, irony with Facist police in an independence day parade...

Peru has some major Marxist revolutionary problems. The populace knows when the riot police appear to scatter, because they mean business.

Well, it's one way to distract people from rioting :-)

It just looks like it was designed by Joel Schumacher.

Can you imagine wearing this in Peru in the summer? If I were an insurgent I'd wait to go to the barriacades on the hottest day possible and wait for the police to keel over from heat exhaustion--.

hey, speaking of monkeys...
you gotta see this! It totally reminds me of our conversation at the LOEG party Friday night.
