think twice before rioting!
Mass crown control techniques......
Now, a gun that can stun an entire crowd!

The weapon being created by the US Department of Defense's research division, DARPA, and defence companies in Europe has a conducting channel, which
uses a small explosive charge to squirt a stream of tiny conductive fibers through the air at the victim.
The gun has been designed for the US Marine Corps to use for crowd control and security purposes and is due out next year. It is based on early,
unwieldy technology and has a range of only 3 meters, but an operator can debilitate multiple targets by sweeping it across them.
This intense pulse ionises the air, producing long, thread-like filaments of glowing plasma that can be sustained by repeating the pulse every few
milliseconds. This plasma channel is then used to deliver a shock to the victims similar to a Taser's 50,000-volt, 26-watt shock.
what ever happened to the good old bobby sticks and shields days??
