The military's "pain ray" may be going live


www.foxnews.com

The ADS, developed by the Pentagon's Joint Non-Lethal Weapons Directorate, has previously mounted the full version of the ADS on a truck, and made a smaller version for infantry use.

The Air Force version, according to New Scientist, will be packed into an aircraft and be capable of handling multiple beams at once -- making it perfect for non-lethal crowd control.

Perfect for martial law! Perfect for crowd control, I think its pretty convenient that funding has recently been beefed up for this project.

I am sure that this will see its fair share of use. And blasting microwave beams at people to the point their skin burns is really pushing the boundaries of non lethal force, because you can't convince me this has no serious long term effects of health.

They'll be able to make and enforce curfew/"zone" rules easily with automated versions of this tech.

I don't suppose a full lead suit would do anything eh? Or maybe one of those volcano suits...

Fast forward to about 1:45

Who ever created this technology have just been given VIP passes straight to the domains of hell.

Bastards.

Well, the military can always just scrap the program and use 5.56 for crowd control. Which do you want?

I imagine they will put these things on drones.

Very creepy thought.

Say that to your grandkids when they're being confined in pain-free zones.

Oh and what exactly is 'cool' about inflicting pain on someone?

How about neither? Or is that not 'cool' enough for you?

Obligatory second line.

I think ELECTRICkoolaidZOMBIEtroll believes it's cool so long as it is used on someone else.

But, much like tasers, the belief in their non-lethality makes it more likely any dissent or petitioning of government for redress of grievances will be quashed with a simple push of the button. Noone at the helm will feel like they have to make a hard decision and have to justify it later.

I'd MUCH rather be hit with this thing than bullets. Or even rubber bullets or gas. Trust me rubber bullets hurt like hell and sting almost as much as a normal bullet and I've been shot with both!

In the demonstration video of it someone posted it doesnt even look that painful!

peace.

That was my first thought actually. Another one is I could easily see England set one of these up next to every street camera that they could use by remote control. They could then "prevent crimes" from occurring or stop ones in progress, at least, that's how they would sell it.

Tasers were initially only supposed to be used against people brandishing weapons or who had become physically violent, now they use them against 14 year girls running away and disagreeable grandmothers during traffic stops.

So, I can see these ADS systems being phased into mainstream use in the next 10 years easily, for example, at sporting events (after the Lakers win another championship, gotta keep the streets clear!) or demonstrations.

That's cool, many people enjoy going to wax museums showing instruments of torture from the middle ages, and what not. Lot's people find that stuff enjoyable.

They are called Sadomasochists.

Now, bring out the gimp...

You are exactly right. Tasers were the introductory weapon to use as an example, right? "They" will come up with something like: well, tazers are legal so why not... It's only for your protection that we would use it.



People like the guy that thinks it's cool as hell will agree and then we are screwed. (Sorry, dude, but it so is not cool.)

Imagine what happens to the person who can't run away from it... maybe cooked from the inside out.

-Sorry for the nasty visual.

Ya, that is what I was thinking.

Something else I thought of is that I know someone on ATS warned of some kind of device to be used against us in the near future where we would have to wear some kind of metal mesh to deflect it. Maybe Dark Kn1ght?

Anyway it's got me creeped the heck out now.

edit to post the post I mentioned above:

However, when it all hits the fan, you are going to have to ride a formidable tiger indeed and hope for the best.

Dude had some crazy things to say and in the end was banned. His words have stuck in my head though.
