Imagine a world where police have the ability to torture from a distance anyone they want at the touch of a button.
Does that sound like something out of a science fiction novel?
It is in the final stages of development and could soon be a reality on the streets of America.
NewScientist is reporting that the U.S. Department of Justice is developing two portable "non-lethal" weapons that inflict severe pain from a distance using either microwave technology or laser beams.
According to that report, the intention of the U.S. Department of Justice is to put these pain ray weapons into the hands of police on the streets of America.
Some observers are very upset about this development, as they claim that giving police the ability to instantly torture anyone they want from a distance is a very dangerous thing to do.
Others are applauding the development of these new "non-lethal" weapons as a step away from the use of "lethal" weapons by police.
All of this comes a couple of months after a report that the U.S. Army will be deploying mobile pain ray trucks (called the Active Denial System) that have the capability to instantly fry the flesh of whole crowds of protesters using microwave technology.
A whole crowd of rioters actually being cooked like they are in a microwave oven.
Instead of finding more ways to torture and kill one another, perhaps we all should be looking for more ways to love each other.
Just a thought.
