Russian military point guns at school kids, fire blanks, during school ceremony (video)

Not much to say about this one, other than WTF?

To apparently celebrate the first day of classes this year, a Moscow school thought it wise to have men dressed in military gear point their guns at first graders, at point blank range.

(The YouTube page says they’re Russian Interior Ministry Special Forces. ┬áThese are the troops often used to break up gay rights protests, and have the unfortunate name “OMON,” which in Russia, spelled backwards, reads “HOMO”).

At another point during the fun, the troops opened fire with blanks while, again, their guns were pointed at the crowd of kids.

I honestly wouldn’t even know where to begin with this. Just watch the video.
