San Jose Police to Use Sound Weapon

I hope this article confirms for any doubters that yes, there is such a thing as a wave-frequency weapon, and they are intended for domestic use. I contend devises like these have already been used during protests using inaudible frequencies.

I can see a ton of very good uses - military and industrial for this sort of technology.

It's always the application that gets frightening - it comes down to power. Power used wisely with restraint and good judgement is a benefit to humanity. Power misapplied out of fear or a chickenshit need for dominance is an entirely different matter.

Personally, I think the best thing is to start getting people who disagree with the direction things are going into local positions like city councils and police and fire commissions. We might not be able to move the feds quite so much, but we can have a lot of impact locally.

It's not a silver bullet, but we should take everything we can get in fighting the abuse of this sort of technology.
