This is completely impractical at first glance and that I am not architecturally minded doesn’t help either, but during the Gulf Conflict, we installed reactive applicate armor on the amphibious personnel carriers and tanks. The Merkava, Israel’s main battle tank, has a different version we called "dingle balls". The balls would explode if hit with any sort of object traveling at a specified force, thus redirecting and minimizing damage.

The reactive applicate armor is very similar and is attached to the vehicles in blocks that attach with nuts and bolts. If impacted, they explode on contact, redirecting and somewhat neutralizing the incoming device.

If this concept could be marketed (if it is not already) and sold to the construction or security industries, perhaps tragedies like we are suffering could be lessened and the bite might be taken out of the bad dogs.
