Raytheon who brought us the LRAD has just patented a new harmful, painful and potentially deadly crowd control device. It is a modified policeman's shield which emits a low frequency sound wave that causes difficulty thinking, breathing and often causes physical collapse. It can on occasion cause brain damage and even heart attack. Further bodily harms have not been fully tested. Nice. Wonderful corporation. Have to get some shares of this one along with Montsanto, Halliburton, Blackwater [under whatever name] and some other corporate monsters

Future Riot Shields Will Suffocate Protestors with Low Frequency Speakers

It's not the first crowd control tool to use sound waves, but Raytheon's patent for a new type of riot shield that produces low frequency sound waves to disrupt the respiratory tract and hinder breathing, sounds a little scary.

Crowd control tools like the LRAD Sound Cannon emit bursts of loud and annoying sounds that can induce headaches and nausea. But Raytheon's non-lethal pressure shield creates a pulsed pressure wave that resonates the upper respiratory tract of a human, hindering breathing and eventually incapacitating the target. The patent points out that the sound waves being generated are actually not that powerful, so while protestors might collapse from a lack of oxygen reaching their brains, their eardrums won't be damaged in the process. Phew!

And like Roman soldiers joining their shields to form a large impenetrable wall, these new riot shields can actually be networked together to form a larger acoustical horn, vastly improving their range, power, and effectiveness. There's no word on what the long-term medical implications might be if you find yourself on the wrong side of one of these shields. But I imagine the unpleasant experience is not unlike being force choked from afar by Darth Vader.

Where do they find these creeps who work in their offices thinking this stuff up? Can't they get honest work at the local abbatoir?
