Marines Want Pain Ray, ASAP

Oh please! A "Pain Ray"? If it weren’t for the fact that these people
are being deadly serious I’d think that somebody has been watching a
little too much Star Trek.

Unfortunately that is not the case. One of the futuristic, James Bond
meets Star Trek goodies that they’re working on is real. It’s using near
microwave frequencies to generate an effect that apparently is a dream
for crowd control, nobody can stand up to it for more than a few seconds.

Just between you, me and the fencepost, I don’t think it’s a good idea
for Big Brother to have something like this… Ever.

Marines
Want Pain Ray, ASAP

The Pentagon says its millimeter-wave pain ray won’t be ready until
2010. But Marines in Iraq want to use the "holy grail of crowd
control" at checkpoints now. In Danger Room.
