100,000 Strong Anti-Terrorism Force Mobilizes for Olympics

From USA Today:

China is mobilizing an anti-terrorism force of 100,000 to protect next month’s Olympic Games that includes SWAT teams on Segways and officers who can shoot nets like Spider-Man at suspects.

An additional 500,000 volunteers will be on neighborhood street corners to watch for suspicious people. And there’s a reward up to $73,000 for anyone who tips police to a major terrorist threat.
