Umm... I directly saw a Dazzler unit tested last Fall by a cop on a side street in Oakland. The protest was a couple blocks down and this was one of
the nights the cops were lining the side streets to keep the protest on a specific line. Well, the news helicopter filmed on this side street with the
row of cops just standing around waiting for everyone to get there when one of them maneuvered a big rectangular looking object (From the air..I
can't honestly say it looked like a Rifle) then he turned it on. That is impossible to miss when turned on at night and pointed at dark pavement.
Even from the altitude of the news helicopter,
He'd had the thing on for no more than a couple seconds. Just testing I guess...but it was a Dazzler alright. Nothing else has dancing laser light
like that. Green dancing bands.
I bring it up just to be careful out there.... When you blind them, they could very well get pissed and give you a dose of something far far worse
than a mirror. ...also watch for the damn things. They look like the Rifle on Aliens (The one with the marines), only about 1/2 again larger. They are
big...but very portable.
If someone does see one...well, open some space between everyone. You won't control the physical reflect if you take a shot dead on...and your
friends will be grateful if you didn't have a BIG meal before the protest.
