While originally designed for military application, the Pentagon denies these microwave Active Denial Systems were ever used in the mid east theater of war. Apparently they were deployed to Afghanistan, but military commanders decided against their use on civilians because the weapon would reportedly make the war for hearts and minds more difficult to win.
The Los Angeles Police Department then took possession of some of the non-lethal heat ray guns, saying they would be used in their prison systems to quell inmate disturbances, but later changed their reason for acquiring the weapons, saying that they would be used for helping to combat crowds.
What’s most alarming, as Alexander Higgins points out below, is that recent anti-terrorism and anti-assembly laws coupled with deployment of these weapons by local law enforcement agencies suggests a new and alarming trend in the United States.
