I recall witnessing this very same "weapon" on the Discovery Channel Program: "Future Weapons", a year or two ago. It truly works, and it disables the subject without causing retinal damage. It achieves this through a certain amount of diffusion, in that the laser covers an area about the size of a face (much like a flash-light beam, but only much more intense). Hey, if it saves lives then I am all for it.
