New Government Weapon Will Temporarily Blind Crowds

Tasers are so yesterday. The latest government gizmo is the "Dazer Lazer". Writes a friend embedded within the government:
We get all sorts of government trade journals delivered here. I found this while leafing through the latest issue of GSN: Government Security News (http://www.gsnmagazine.com/).

The "Dazer Laser" is an "ocular distraction device" that emits a non-damaging [Oh yeah-RW] laser pattern that temporarily blinds a person. Some of them will work up to 1.5 miles! The videos show quite clearly how they do their dirty work... I can imagine it won't be long before SWAT teams are mounting these to their RV's for crowd and riot control.
The video below advises:

In the event of crowd control...simply use the Dazer Lazer like a paint brush and daze the crowd across their faces.

  1. Having a technical backround, I wonder how using a mirror to reflect this pulsing laser would affect the users of this device, or better yet, a whole crownd of people with mirrors. Another $1,000,000 big government gadget defeated by basic physics.

  2. If this is so harmless, why are all the "bad guy"actors in the video wearing laser-proof glasses?

  3. Non-lethal weapon selling point #3: You can't waterboard a gunshot victim.

  6. Mirrors wouldn't do anything to the swat team because it appears they are wearing glasses that filter out the 532nm laser. Because its a single wavelength the glasses can completely filter it out, even when looking into it directly. -People in the crowd however could also order said glasses as they are radially available but chance is slim anyone would. -Laser Tech, MN

  7. what are the chances of permanent blindness as an after-affect? i think i'd rather be killed than handicapped by the police.

  8. Would you rather be Tased (risk heart-attack) or be dazed (no risk.. no it doesn't create blindness)
