Switzerland. Geneva. A police officer control the identity of a man in the street and look for illegal substances (drugs). The man comes from the neighboring french area and wants to party in the Paquis neighborhood, known for its nightlife and Red-light district. He will be left free after the control. The policeman is wearing a ballistic vest, bulletproof vest or bullet-resistant vest which is an item of personal armor that helps absorb the impact from knives, firearm-fired projectiles and shrapnel from explosions, and is worn on the torso. Soft vests are made from many layers of woven or laminated fibers and can be capable of protecting the wearer from small-caliber handgun and shotgun projectiles. 01.04.12 © 2012 Didier Ruef..
