YES YES YES!

Now we need Mai to begin the backbreaking.

Her impulsive action (blowing the ACCs) makes her responsible towards the people. And now they get punish for her mistake. That's not a thing that makes her feel good, right?
Now, the situation might end not only in a one-vs-cops combat (if she is going to be threaten cuz she has no ID) but in a melee. "No-ID-People" are desperate and Mai might give them a rare or only opportunity to break through this checkpoint.

Is that some kind of panzer behind the bridge in the background ? Then I must change my 'forecast': .. a bloody slaughter. :|

At first I thought that they shot all people that have no ID paper but at a second look I think I got what happened: The running man has no paper and known that they then don't let him through so he tried with force. He thought that he had nothing to lose...
I wonder if Mai has an ID.

of course she doesn't :)

Either version fits pretty well with the picture. In fact the sequence is just showing a person who's trying to run way, and killed for no clear reason. Kon is in the crowd staring in dismay, and she can hardly grasp what's happening.

The sequence only is meant to show the reader the brutality and cool-bloodedness of the cp guard. The event is also an abrupt stop to Kon's journeying mindset: this is not going to be a simple routine control... her very life is going to be at stake: something is going to happen for sure. Can't you sense an adrenaline spike?
