Police to experiment with blinding laser?

http://news.cnet.com/8301-17852_3-20011548-71.html?tag=mncol

Cnet.com-
"Perhaps "Don't Dazer Laser me, bro" doesn't quite trip off the tongue. However, police in the Northwest may soon be experimenting with the Dazer Laser, a tool which, well, shoots, blinds, and disorients.

The Dazer Laser is a gun that emits a green light at suspects and causes them to temporarily lose their sight and wonder whether they might have been transported to an alternative galaxy. And, according to King 5 News in Seattle, police in the Northwest might soon be the first to experiment with zapping a green light at a suspected evildoer.

The Dazer Laser, allegedly, has less deleterious side effects than tasers and enjoys a greater distance of use than pepper spray. "You need minimal training. It's not hard to aim a light at somebody," Officer Tom Arnold of the Lakewood Police Department told King 5.


How do you feel about this?

  • Wow! I always felt they had enough of dangerous weapons to track down criminals. I'm sorry but no disrespect to the good officers, but this can be a problem for those police officers who tend to go a little crazy with pepper spray, nightsticks, and stun guns. These officers will probably blind an individual. Trust me, we will hear some serious injuries being reported if these are released to cops.

  • Interesting. I wonder if it will have a bad side effect of people who have had previous eye surgery, and those who have seizures and elipsy and if it can aggravate any other medical issues.
