I figure this device will be used primarily in violent situations. The LA riots would be a good example. If this device saves police/soldiers lives, in a violent situation. Im all for it.

what about the "rioters", do they get the chance to do the same? and what about people who (for whatever reason) can't get out of it's beam? what are the effects on them. to me this weapon sounds horrific
If you put a penny in a microwave oven, it will heat quickly but not if there is something else in the resonant cavity like meat. I think that the removal of glass and metal were precautions for the volunteers. I don't like the idea of such a high frequency being used because the shorter the wave length, the deeper the penetration. I do think that a safe distance will not pose a threat since microwaves lose strength with distance.

well, as long as it doesnt do anything to innocent people and it works.........


also, do these leave permanent effects?

Only burns if overexposed but the idea is to disperse the crowd. It's similar to an open flame on very cold fingers, it takes a while to realize it's getting hotter with time. I'm sure the exposure time is controlled.

I think 3 or so abrahms lined up across the street comeing towards you would do the same thing, well unless your incredibly stupid.

So far, they've shown themselves to be incredibly stupid.
