Welcome to the future folks; I hope you like it. It’s the kind of place where you get arrested for drugs then get thrown into prison due to minimum sentencing laws. Once incarcerated, the government uses your ass as a lab rat to test its newest and greatest laser weapon. Sounds like a great place doesn’t it? I hope you enjoy getting shot with red-hot lasers by rednecks who couldn’t even find laser in the dictionary if you turned it to “L” for them. Think I’m joking? I wish I was. Check out the video below of cops testing the device in the Los Angeles County Jail Complex. The “Assault Intervention Device” as it’s called, is made by Raytheon–a government arms builder. The system is controlled via remote with a computer and joystick and will be hung on the ceiling of the jail. The laser beam it creates is about the size of a CD and can be sent over 100 feet. In the video you see California cops testing it out on each other on low voltage. The device is being installed in the Los Angeles Jail Complex under their Sheriffs Hitler sounding “Technology Exploration Program.”

Mike Booen of Raytheon had this to tell the Daily News about the laser.”The energy traveling at the speed of light penetrates the skin up to 1/64 of an inch deep. No one can stand being in the beam’s path for more than about three seconds.”

Naturally, the ACLU is not happy about the device, which is a smaller version of the “Active Denial System” also built by Raytheon but for the Pentagon. An attorney for the American Civil Liberties Union, Peter Eliasberg, voiced the ACLU’s concerns over the weapon saying: “We’re going to use people in the jails as guinea pigs for some mega arms builder to test their device.”

Keep voting for Republicans folks, and this is what you have to look forward to; getting arrested for something that shouldn’t be a crime then getting thrown in jail due to minimum sentencing laws. Once imprisoned they shoot you with laser beams in a real life video game played by two cops who think it’s funny to burn CD size welts on you, all while some giant arms company logs the data of how long it takes them to zap you into epileptic seizure. Sounds f*cking wonderful doesn’t it? I hope you don’t have any family or friends in the California penal system. – Kid Chronic
