Maximum pain

New weapon in development

No, not some wacky conspiracy theory. Through a Freedom of Information Act request, The Sunshine Project has learned that the US is currently funding development of a weapon that could cause excrutiating pain from more than a mile away. The technology allegedly leaves no physically detectable evidence.

It's supposedly designed for "riot control," but I'll bet it could just as easily be used in closer contexts (Camp X-Ray?).

Deeply troubling.
