U.S. Dissenters: The Goverments Next Guinea Pigs

After reading a great post over at Para Justicia y Libertad! about the goverment testing of their newest "non-lethal" weapon on American citizens, I decided to do some research on this.
The new secret weapon, affectionately called, the "People Zapper", is said to be the Marine's biggest breakthrough in weapons technology since the atomic bomb. The "People Zapper", A.K.A., the Vehicle-Mounted Active Denial System (VMADS), is a "non-lethal" weapon that fires directed energy into a beam of micromillimeter waves. "The energy, which is like microwaves, causes the moisture in a person's skin to heat up rapidly, creating a burning sensation similiar to a hot light bulb pressed against one's flesh."
Mmmmm, toasted human flesh, served up by the goverment chefs!
Goverment official plans include mounting the "People Zapper" on top of a Humvee, & have even suggested a 'Close Encounters of the Third Kind'-model, to mount onto aircraft!
The "possible applications" include, CROWD CONTROL, perimeter defense, & disruption of "enemy activities". The weapon's range still remains classified, but project officials expect that it's range will exceed 750 meters!
Whoever is using this weapon could easily engage a crowd from far. When the beam is waved over a group, people would immediatley experience hard-core pain, causing confusion & driving the crowd to disperse. But if it causes "confusion", how is one to "disperse" if confused & in pain??
It is still undetermined whether or not this weapon poses long-term health risks, because the goverment, of course, has not released this information. Personally, I cant see how being zapped, cooked, & burned by microwaves could NOT have long-term health risks!The "People Zapper" can pass throuhg clothing, by the way.
The human body begins to feel pain at about 113 degrees Fahrenheit, around the temperature of a hot light bulb. The VMAD's system could heat a "targets" skin up to about 130 degrees Fahrenheit in around 2 seconds!!
The health threat varies according to body type & length of exposure. So a 105 pound little shit like me might have the same effects as putting foil into a microwave!! Great, so I guess I'll be on the look-out for the "People Zapper" at the next rally or protest!
And for all you concerned with how much this weapon (that might be used on you at the next anti-war rally) costs: The Defense Department has spent nearly $ 40 Million over 10 years developing this, & budget predictions show another $ 26 Million could be needed over the next 5 years or so!
God, you know how many people that could feed & house? You know how many Hurricane Katrina victims could benefit from that kind of money?
But nooo, the United States goverment would much rather stick it's dirty money into combating dissent among it's citizens! Add another tactic to the goverments sponsored rape & desecration of our Constitution, that already includes surveillance, censorship, & detention.

The U.K. seems to be interested in our goverments newest toy as well. Click here for the article.
