    Just the thing for #OWS!!!! :D


    Monday 12 December 2011

    A shoulder-mounted laser that emits a blinding wall of light capable of repelling rioters is to be trialled by police under preparations to prevent a repeat of this summer's looting and arson.

    The technology, developed by a former Royal Marine commando, temporarily impairs the vision of anyone who looks towards the source.

    It has impressed a division of the Home Office which is testing a new range of devices because of the growing number of violent situations facing the police.

    May the FORCE be with you!

    I want to see movies of this, if the cops end up using it on the OWS protesters.

    I'd be real careful about cheering on the use of high tech weapons while private pension funds are being seized in at least two countries in Europe as we speak. Since there is no solution to the gigantic global debt bubble, everything you see happening in Europe will eventually make its way here.

    Just something to think about...

    Very good point.
