    So they put a giant microwave oven on a truck, and the press calls it a "ray gun" for sensationalism. I love American media.

    Sensationalism, yes. But it's still pretty neat none the less. they're also developing something very similar, but instead of microwaves it uses highly directional sound. What's cool about that one is it's not just a painful deterrent, you can use it as a megaphone to warn folks off, and if that doesn't work you crank it up to 11 and nobody wants to get closer. But unlike a regular speaker, it's so directional you can stand to the side and be safe at a distance that would blow out your ears if you were directly in front of it.

    As opposed to what?

    And "Americans" should be capitalized.

    Currently, riot control measures include tear gas, batons, and rubber bullets.

    Innocent bystanders can be exposed to tear gas unintentionally.

    Batons hurt and can break bones.

    Rubber bullets are alsoa known hazard that cause unintended injuries.

    http://www.commondreams.org/headlines02/0524-04.htm

    So what would you want used on crowds that have become a rioting mod hell bent ondanger and destruction?

    This device, while too costly for local government use, seems to be a way to disperse a rioting mod and not cause any harm.

    But the cost is simply too much for use in the US by police.I am going to HIGHLY doubt it will be used as you submit.

    If law enforcement are unable to utilize this, then things won't change. However, if these 'ray guns' end up being utilized against Americans (happy?) while they are exercising their right to protest, then you can bet that at some point, people are going to resort to more violent means, up to and including actually using firearms against police.

    This is not a "ray gun".... it is a directional microwave antenna.

    To call it a ray gun it a media spin to sensationalize it. This has been out a while and is no secret. Because the military has it you somehow think it will be used on Americans. Just like claymore mines and Titan missiles perhaps?

    In any case... you can make all the threats you like on what youor other Americans would do. You simply show the need for the police to be well armed as it is clear that when they try to use non violent measures to disperse an unlawful and violent mob... you would resort to firearms against them.

    What does the guy in the aluminum suit need so much protection from if the woman is 3/4 nekked?

    After a 2nd look; I noticed she's built like my wife.

    After a 3rd look, I have to change the above to 15/16 ths nekked.

    My wife smiles more, though.

    I really like brunettes better. With blue eyes.

    Firearms (or plasma weapons, phasers, etc.) in the hands of women have never turned me on, however.

    Something about mepreferring to be the protector.

    CAPITALIZED, TOO??? If you're going to correct someone, you really should use proper spelling too.

    Actually I think that riot control should include much more. As has been discussed on here many times the legality of shooting someone robbing you of your hard earned possessions rioters are no different and should be shot if they are destroying someones car or business.

    DARPA was developing a "ray gun" that would be comprised a pair of solid state lasers that would fire and ionize two columns of air, side by side. Ionized air is mildly conductive, so the idea was to use these ionized columns as wires to deliver a high voltage charge to a target. They would essentially create a Taser-like stun gun with a range of anywhere from a few feet to 2 miles, depending upon the enthusiasm of the writer. If the device can deliver enough power to run continuously, one could wave this thing around and stun a whole crowd of people. Not sure how small they can make it.

    One story here:

    Banging your what? Did you mean "head" by any chance?


    The pot calling the kettle "black"??? LEO, you haveposted some of the most inane comments I've ever read. Through your many silly posts on this site, I've come toone simpleconclusion:You are the poorest representative of the LE community I've ever encountered.

    I have greatdifficulty believing you are an actual LEO. No doubt in my mind, you're the recipient of several "bonehead counselling sessions" that are likely well-documented in your service record. Its rather amusing you fancy yourself an LEOlike the "Miami Vice" avatar on your posts.

    Do us all a favor, LEO... "Choke yourself, Private Pyle..."
