Character of the Week # 257 : The ultimate police riot controller

Last week’s CHoW was to design the ultimate police riot controller, rather timely considering the events in Jolly old England these past few weeks.  I wasn’t sure if I was being too clever, but since my initial impulse (and I assumed everyone else’s would be as well) was to go for a bulky riot cop in full riot gear I went in the exact opposite direction.  My riot controller would be a parkour practitioner, able to  jump from building to building over the rioters while dropping teargas canisters and closing in on the ringleaders of the riot to take them out with electric batons.

Not sure how I’ll fare this week.  I was a little miffed that a lot of the challengers didn’t quite follow the “no sci-fi” bit of the brief, which I took great pains to adhere to.  As a result i feel like there were quite a few entries this time around that had really awesome designs that just don’t exist in the current/near future world.  Next week should be a little more fun, since the theme is alchemist cowboy.
