Do that at home and you might have just shot grandma.
Oh yeah? So the bad guy in the man dress w/ the funny hat is somehow different than the non combatant in the man dress with the funny hat?
As far as recognizing silhouettes of people you are familiar w/, it can be done. After a few night movements in the field it became quite easy to identify people my silhouette. Imagine if it was someone you've know all your life like grandma.
You have got to be doing some sort of social experiment.
