The thread was started by an observation that eight police officers taking lunch at the same table and at the same time is a recipe for disaster.
Correct. The proper way to do it would be 1 officer eats (while in the prone), the additional officers spaced at 5 to 10 meter intervals in the prone in a rough 360. Once one is finished he low crawls to the trash can, dumps his tray and low crawls to replace an officer...who then low crawls to the center of the 360 so he can eat.
Once finished they all bound overwatch back to their motorcycles. The end.
