The Scariest Non-Lethal Weapons of Our Police State

Via the website, AlterNet:

The US is at the forefront of an international arms development effort that includes a remarkable assortment of technologies, which look and sound like they belong in a Hollywood science fiction thriller. From microwave energy blasters and blinding laser beams, to chemical agents and deafening sonic blasters, these weapons are at the cutting edge of crowd control.

The Pentagon’s approved term for these weapons is “non-lethal” or “less-lethal” and they are intended for use against the unarmed. Designed to control crowds, clear streets, subdue and restrain individuals and secure borders, they are the 21st century’s version of the police baton, pepper spray and tear gas. As journalist Ando Arike puts it, “The result is what appears to be the first arms race in which the opponent is the general population.”

It is interesting that weapons that were deemed inappropriate for use in Afghanistan, are suddenly now appropriate for use on civilians in the US.

This article describes the newest, ‘deadliest’, Non-Lethal weapons to implemented at a police department near you.
