Anti-terrorist drills in Shandong (China)

Some photos from China Daily:

Segways! Are they serious?! How accurate do you think the shooting will be if they have to lean forward and back while gripping the steering column with their legs? Also, I thought to turn left/right, you need to twist something on the handlebars. Can't be too effective if you can only go straight. I wonder if they're real Segways or Chinese knockoffs.

Flamethrowers?! This has got to be political theater. What possible terrorist attack on the Olympics would require a flamethrower deterrent?
