An M79 grenade launcher seems overkill for that car.
It’s not aimed at the car, it’s aimed at the driver. Wayyyy overkill, Corporal.
Wow in today’s nation those people in that car would be millionaires if they were able to get that picture in a court. Times have changed.
I dont care if that M79 is loaded with smiley faces amd gumdrops, too close! Shame.

That violence was made all the more shocking by the fact that it was often inflicted upon persons who had broken no law, disobeyed no order, made no threat. These included peaceful demonstrators, onlookers, and large numbers of residents who were simply passing through, or happened to live in, the areas where confrontations were occurring.[30
