X-26 Tasers on belt; more accessible

The likelihood of having it when they need it is not good,” Zuidema said. “We didn’t see results with the M-26, not because it didn’t work, but because it was not carried.”
Then last year,
40 of the X-26 models were added, Zuidema said. These models are more compact and will fit on an officer’s belt. The goal, Zuidema said, is to make the X-26 Tasers standard issue for all sworn officers
The Taser uses electrical impulses to contract the muscles and create a pain response, said Staley. The impulses mimic the motor signals sent out by the brain and override them, causing the muscles to contract.

DoD largest contract with Tasers
TASER Intl announces largest contract in company history at $515K; contract was a follow on contract (TASR) 28.13 +0.10: -- Update -- TASR announced that it has received follow-on funding from the Dept of Defense through the U.S. Marine Corps and the Office of Naval Research. The research contract, in excess of $515,000 is the largest in co's history. The funding is in response to a proposal that was submitted by TASR to continue the development of its new Extended Range Electronic Projectile technology.

Death by Taser
Medical examiners have found that Taser electric stun guns may have played a role in at least five deaths, contradicting the manufacturer's claim that the weapons never killed or injured anyone, a newspaper reported Sunday.
Medical examiners in three cases involving suspects who died in police custody cited Tasers as a cause or a contributing factor in the deaths, The Arizona Republic reported. In two other cases, Tasers could not be ruled out as a cause of death.
The Scottsdale-based company created a report detailing 42 cases of people who died after being shot by a Taser. The company claims the stun guns were cleared every time.

EPIC : Vomit Guns ; causing imbalance in the ear
EPIC, for Electromagnetic Personnel Interdiction Control. The idea is that intense radio-frequency emissions – capable of passing through walls – would be used to temporarily disrupt the balance and coordination functions of targets' inner ears, knocking them down relatively harmlessly.
"unconscious vomiting would seem to present something of a choking hazard."

MicroWave guns, and Gunslinger and "sheriffs"
Office of Force Transformation
Using technology similar to that found in a conventional microwave oven, the beam rapidly heats water molecules in the skin to cause intolerable pain and a burning sensation. The invisible beam penetrates the skin to a depth of less than a millimetre. As soon as the target moves out of the beam's path, the pain disappears

Used upon Civilians
Because there are no after-effects, the United States Department of Defence believes that the weapons will be particularly useful in urban conflict. The beam could be used to scatter large crowds in which insurgents operate at close quarters to both troops and civilians.

It's all about pain by CONTROL ( ADS ..active denial system )
The skin gets extremely hot, and people can't stand the pain, so they have to move - and move in the way we want them to," said Col Wade Hall of the Office of Force Transformation

Stun Guns kill .... 42 deaths
The Republic's review of autopsies and interviews with medical examiners found Tasers have been linked to
at least five deaths.
Medical examiners in three cases involving suspects who died in police custody cited Tasers as a cause or a contributing factor in the deaths. In two other cases, Tasers could not be ruled out as a cause of death.
These deaths raise questions about a weapon police routinely use on drunks, shoplifters, mentally ill people and others who refuse to obey commands.

To promote the guns' safety, Taser officials created a special report detailing 42 cases of people who died after being shot by a Taser. They say the stun guns were cleared each and every time.
The report also omits published findings of a medical examiner who concluded that electrical shocks from a Taser contributed directly to the death of a man in an Indiana jail.

But relatives of those who have died in Taser-related incidents say the company rushes its defense, predicting the outcome of cases before investigations are finished.
Kelly Deitrich, whose brother, Raymond Siegler, died in February after being shot by police with a Taser in a Minneapolis group home for mentally ill people, said Taser's explanations are misleading.
But in 1999, Taser introduced the Advanced M26, promising instant incapacitation without injury; its

50,000-volt charge
overrides the central nervous system, forces muscle contraction and is virtually impossible to shrug off.

Kohr noted that jailers at the Monroe County jail used a Taser multiple times on Borden.
"They juiced my brother to death," Borden's brother, Steve, says. "They used it and used it and used it."
Someone shot with a Taser involuntarily contracts into a semi-fetal position; hands bunch into fists, knees buckle and the person drops to the ground, frozen in the same position until the current is cut.
But as use of the stun guns spreads, the number of people dying in incidents involving Tasers keeps growing.
In June, a Minnesota man died after police shot him with Tasers, sprayed him with a chemical and hit him with batons when he refused to stop shouting in the middle of the street.

"Like being in boiling water"

The (painful) body electric January 15, 2004 By Michael Kanellos
In case you've ever wondered, a blast from a Taser--the electronic gun police use to stun criminals--hurts.

It's like having nail guns applied to your hands and feet while you're being dunked in a vat of boiling water.
I learned this the hard way, during a live demonstration at the Computer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, which ended Sunday. (Taser International showed up, because it is bringing a model to the consumer market, for personal protection, in July.)
Worse, you remain fully conscious. So for the single second the 50,000 volts from the gun coursed through my system, I could hear myself shout, "AAH! STURG! AAH!" at the top of my lungs in the crowded Las Vegas Convention Center.

Stun Grenades kill --------"No Knock" policy

N E W  Y O R K, May 16---A 57-year-old woman with a heart condition died today after police mistakenly raided her apartment with a stun grenade, authorities said.
Police were searching for a Harlem drug dealer's cache of drugs and weapons, but kicked down the door to the apartment of city employee Alberta Spruill instead, police said.
Within an hour, the woman entered cardiac arrest and died, police said.

Weapon of Choice in Arizona ( on Univ. campuses too )
The growing weapon of choice in Arizona law enforcement is yellow and black and stings like 50,000 bees.

In Arizona, 74 law enforcement agencies are testing or using Tasers, non-lethal weapons that take down suspects with
a 50,000-volt, pulsating electrical charge but leave no permanent damage. Tasers are being tested even in London, where the bobbies historically have not carried firearms.

Other agencies around the state have Tasers assigned to each squad or available to check out. Even the Arizona State University Department of Public Safety has purchased four. That's enough to equip each shift, and the department plans to purchase more.

Other non-lethal options, such as stun guns that require direct contact, pepper spray and batons,
use pain to coerce surrender. Tasers give suspects no choice, stopping them in their tracks with
muscle contractions.


And though there have been in-custody deaths of suspects after a Taser was used, the Taser shot has never been determined as the cause of death.

The weapon is fully trackable. A computer chip date-stamps every time the trigger is pulled. The cartridges have serial numbers and when fired, they release confetti with the serial numbers on them. Investigators at a scene involving several officers can determine who fired and how many times

Less lethal...more Torture
Among products obtained by the Home Office are an electric stun gun that paralyses the central nervous system, a device that temporarily blinds the target by overloading the optic nerve, and a weapon that fires bean bags filled with lead shot, knocking the target to the ground.
Officials from the defence evaluation and research agency have also travelled to California to investigate a laser that fires an ultra-violet beam that paralyses the subject. Prototypes of the "tetanizing beam weapon", a version of which can disable the electrical system of a car, tank or aeroplane, will be ready for testing within a year.

Police in London to use stun guns (taser guns)
Dart Guns....3rd way choice
The "taser" gun, which uses an electrical shock to cause temporarily paralysis, could be introduced by the end of the year.
The move is designed to give Metropolitan Police officers more non-lethal options when tackling violent offenders, said a Scotland Yard spokeswoman.

The spokeswoman said: "The Metropolitan Police would like to see the use of less lethal weapons such as the air taser, an electrical device, and is looking at the possibility at the moment."

Tasers work by firing a two-pronged
dart, connected to the gun by an electrical wire, into the victim.
Propelled by an air cartridge, the dart
can penetrate most clothing at a range of 30ft.

An electrical charge
over-rides the central nervous system,
causing uncontrollable muscle contractions.
These almost always
render the victim harmless as most people curl up into the foetal position immediately.
"The risks to health are thought to be small."

But the Northern Ireland Office and ACPO have asked the Home Office to research the "operational possibilities" of non-lethal technology.

This is a fast-growing industry, whose products are often not properly tested and many of whose clients are well known to have used the products to routinely and systematically torture men, women and children, Amnesty International said.
Yet many governments --

Weapon used on "adversaries" ( anyone who dares to disagree )
The DoE Office of Security and Safety Performance Assurance, together with the Department of Defense, is "exploring the potential" of directed energy weapons based on millimetre-wave rays.
According to the DoE the technology is capable of rapidly heating human skin to a pain level that has been demonstrated as "very effective at repelling people" without apparently burning the skin or causing other secondary effects.
ADT [ Active Denial Technology ] emits a
95GHz non-ionizing electromagnetic beam of energy that penetrates approximately 1/64 of an inch into human skin tissue, where nerve receptors are concentrated.
Within seconds, the beam will heat the exposed skin tissue to a level where
intolerable pain is experienced and natural defence mechanisms take over.

The sensation caused by the system has been described by test subjects as feeling like touching a hot frying pan or the intense radiant heat from a fire. Burn injury is prevented by limiting the beam's intensity and duration.
Editor: Burn injury is INCREASED by more intensity and duration of the beam.

Stun Guns used indiscriminantly in crowd control

Weapons that can incapacitate crowds of people by sweeping a lightning-like beam of electricity across them are being readied for sale to military and police forces in the US and Europe.
The new breed of non-lethal weapons can be used on many people at once and operate over far greater distances.

A weapon under development by Rheinmetall, based in Dorf, Germany, creates a conducting channel by using a small explosive charge to squirt a stream of tiny conductive fibres through the air at the victim
(New Scientist print edition, 24 May 2003).


CARS IMMOBILIZED TOO

Meanwhile, Xtreme Alternative Defense Systems (XADS), based in Anderson, Indiana, will be one of the first companies to market another type of wireless weapon. Instead of using fibres, the $9000 Close Quarters Shock Rifle projects an ionised gas, or plasma, towards the target, producing a conducting channel. It will also interfere with electronic ignition systems and stop vehicles.
"We will be able to fire a stream of electricity like water out of a hose at one or many targets in a single sweep," claims XADS president Peter Bitar.


LASERS
XADS is also planning a more advanced weapon which it hopes will have a range of 100 metres or more. Instead of firing ionised gas, it will probably use a powerful laser to ionise the air itself. The idea has been around for decades, says LaVerne Schlie, a laser expert at the US Air Force Research Lab in Kirtland, New Mexico. It has only become practical with advances in high-power solid-state lasers.

American Military: using non-lethal weapons against the citizenry
locust-scorpions from the pit of hell ??? Revelation Chapter 9 ?

The
Navy should integrate weapons designed to incapacitate people into war-fighting requirements, research and development, acquisition plans and operations, the National Research Council of the National Academies urged.
The panel's report has prompted a response from the US Joint Non-Lethal Weapons Directorate.
( Shawn Turner is its spokesman )

According to documents obtained by
the Sunshine Project, a non-governmental group that opposes biological and chemical weapons, US officials and British military officials met in London in November 2000 and agreed to take an active role in planning and advocating "non-lethal" weapons.

The record of the meeting shows that the US participants regarded calmatives as usable by the military as riot-control agents in "non-armed conflict situations such as peacekeeping, humanitarian and counter-terrorism operations; or for limited defensive purposes during armed conflict".
Ed. note.... Interpretation:
This also will be used for crowd-control
in your neighborhood, after our guns are taken away.

Arms control specialists say the ruling could depend on the exclusion from the CWC,[ Chemical Weapons Convention] which allows the use of some chemicals that permit quick recovery for the purposes of
"law enforcement including domestic riot control".
Yet the US armed forces are
forbidden by the Posse Comitatus Act of 1878 and related regulation from domestic law enforcement. Ed. note: Notice to new word "domestic"; that's in your own home !!!

At the November 2000 meeting, US and British officials agreed to co-operate on a public affairs campaign that "must attempt to counter the seemingly inexplicable perception that somehow the use of [non- lethal weapons] is worse than the use of lethal force".

According to Capt Turner, the JNLWD [ Joint non-lethal Weapons Directorate] "would consider the outcome of the [Moscow] hostage situation a failure". About 15 per cent of the hostages died inhaling the anaesthetic aerosol pumped into the siege theatre.

They also raise possible challenges to the rules of war that bar military attacks on civilians, wounded soldiers or those who have surrendered. Once someone is comatose, assessing his status is harder, or perhaps impossible

Piezoelectric
The bullet is constructed of piezoelectric material, used in car starters and stove or cigarette lighters, where a spark ignites gas. "We've taken a larger piece of that material and encapsulated it in a bullet," LeBourgeois explains. On impact, it discharges from a live round of ammunition and has the capacity to be lethal.
Mount Sinai School of Medicine cardiac electrophysiologist Davendra Mehta stresses that indiscriminate shocks can kill. Five percent of the time the heart is in a very vulnerable cycle, he says. "There is no doubt a danger to people getting these shocks because if it's in the vulnerable period it could induce a cardiac arrest," Mehta explains. "Police will have to be trained to give these patients a second shock from an external defibrillator to resuscitate them."
Despite such concerns, a company called
ShockRounds, has agreed to produce LeBourgeois's bullets.

Kadiatou Diallo is skeptical.
"It's like electrocution," she says. "If you try to electrocute someone that can cause heart attack...Is that the solution?"

COMMON SENSE and OBEDIENCE
What if our government wants our guns?
Although the Bill of Rights gives us the right for self-protection to bear arms,
we must recognize that a totalitarian government seizes the guns of the people.
Although that is not right, we must obey that command, no matter how abhorrent that is.
"He who lives by the sword, will die by the sword" , said Jesus Christ.
To have guns ripped from our cold dead hands accomplishes nothing.
Learn when to surrender and when not to surrender. Use common sense at all times.

" A new bill introduced in Congress authorizes the Department of Homeland Security to set up a network of FEMA camp facilities to be used to house U.S. citizens in the event of a national emergency.
The
National Emergency Centers Establishment Act or HR 645 mandates the establishment of “national emergency centers” to be located on military installations for the purpose of to providing “temporary housing, medical, and humanitarian assistance to individuals and families dislocated due to an emergency or major disaster,” according to the bill.
Ominously, the bill also states that the camps can be used to “meet other appropriate needs, as determined by the Secretary of Homeland Security,”

The legislation also states that the camps will be used to “provide centralized locations to improve the coordination of preparedness, response, and recovery efforts of government, private, and not-for-profit entities and faith-based organizations”.

Practicing on little Iceland for civil unrest

In a Wednesday interview with the BBC, the head of the International Monetary Fund, Dominique Strauss-Kahn, predicted that the economic downturn will cause more unrest."[It could happen] almost everywhere, in Europe certainly, and also in emerging countries," he said. "You've had some strikes that look like normal, usual strikes, but it may worsen in the coming months."
Asked which countries were most at risk, Mr Strauss-Kahn mentioned Hungary, Ukraine, Latvia and Belarus. "It can be my own country [France], the UK, it can be eastern Europe," he said.
"The situation is really, really serious," he added.

"Before the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, dedicating 20,000 troops to domestic response — a nearly sevenfold increase in five years — "would have been extraordinary to the point of unbelievable," Paul McHale, assistant defense secretary for homeland defense, said in remarks last month at the Center for Strategic and International Studies. But the realization that civilian authorities may be overwhelmed in a catastrophe prompted "a fundamental change in military culture," he said
Bert Tussing, director of homeland defense and security issues at the U.S. Army War College's Center for Strategic Leadership, said the new Pentagon approach "breaks the mold" by assigning an active-duty combat brigade to the Northern Command for the first time.
Domestic emergency deployment may be "just the first example of
a series of expansions in presidential and military authority," or even an increase in domestic surveillance, said Anna Christensen of the ACLU's National Security Project.
And Cato Vice President Gene Healy warned of "a creeping militarization" of homeland security.

The triggers include a continuing economic collapse with massive social unrest, bank closures resulting in violence against financial institutions, and another fraudulent presidential election that would result in rioting in major cities and campuses around the country.

The accepted use of torture for interrogation

On a 308-122 vote, members of the House supported specific language proposed by Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., that prohibits "cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment" of anyone in the custody of the U.S. government.
( Ed : so they ship them elsewhere where torture is routine ?
McCain's definition only goes to the 2006 Defense Appropriations Bill...
it is not defined as law )
Earlier in the day, McCain and President Bush's national security adviser, Stephen Hadley, met in hopes of reaching a compromise on McCain's proposals, but no agreements were reached
Despite McCain's unwavering stance, the White House continues to push for some level of exemption for officials working in the U.S. intelligence services and most specifically the CIA. Sources familiar with the negotiations said Wednesday that McCain and Hadley's one-on-one meetings over the past month had centered on the White House's request for some level of legal protection from liability for CIA operatives should they be found in violation of the standards.
[ Ed : Didn't GHW Bush use noise-torture against Noreiga and also the nuns residing at the convent ? ]
Such an exception would allow interrogators to use a defense that a "reasonable person" would not have thought their actions were illegal, similar to military laws about following orders.

Air Force Chief Michael Wynne says to use non-lethal weapons upon U.S. citizens before using in the battlefield
Secondly, why should our government be our enemy ?
Nonlethal weapons such as high-power microwave devices should be used on American citizens in crowd-control situations before being used on the battlefield, the Air Force secretary said Tuesday.

Ed: This whole arguement is disgusting. First of all, all non-lethal weapons are TORTURE and therefore should be used on NO ONE.

"Alternative interrogation practices"
Lawyers for the military allow for torture; disannul Geneva Accords of 1949
Ed: "everyman has his price"
The administration also released a brief letter in which the top lawyers for the military branches said they found no legal objection to the White House proposal to redefine a key provision of the Geneva Conventions
The White House made clear that it would fight on despite the Republican rebellion, with Bush saying he would "resist any bill" that did not provide a legal basis for the CIA to continue to employ what he has called "alternative interrogation practices" for terrorism suspects

Cruel methods upheld
"The order places no restriction on coercive methods — such as sleep deprivation and the use of so-called "stress positions" — that are expressly off-limits for the military and domestic law-enforcement agencies.
there is no provision for allowing the Red Cross to visit CIA facilities or allow prisoners to contact their families.

Maximum pain ( torture) for rioters
One document, a research contract between the Office of Naval Research and the University of Florida in Gainesville, US, is entitled "Sensory consequences of electromagnetic pulses emitted by laser induced plasmas".

It concerns so-called
Pulsed Energy Projectiles (PEPs),
which fire a laser pulse that generates a burst of expanding plasma when it hits something solid, like a person (New Scientist print edition, 12 October 2002). The weapon, destined for use in 2007, could literally knock rioters off their feet.

The idea is to work out how to generate a pulse which triggers pain neurons without damaging tissue.
The contract,
heavily censored before release, asks researchers to look for
"
optimal pulse parameters to evoke peak nociceptor activation" - in other words,
cause the maximum pain possible. Studies on cells grown in the lab will identify how much pain can be inflicted on someone before causing injury or death

New Scientist contacted two researchers working on the project. Martin Richardson, a laser expert at the University of Central Florida, US, refused to comment. Brian Cooper, an expert in dental pain at the University of Florida,

PDAs with facial recognition
The Los Angeles Police Department is seeking half a million dollars from the federal government to expand the use of advanced facial-recognition systems to identify criminal suspects.
Facial-recognition software in the device compared the image with those in a database that includes photos
(Ed. note: our drivers licenses all have photo IDs that are entered into databases)
closest match, with a 94% probability of accuracy
( what if you belong to the 6 % unlikely ? )

The LAPD has been using two of the computers donated by their developer, Santa Monica-based Neven Vision. The firm, a pioneer in facial-recognition technology, was looking to have its products field-tested.

arrested for alleged offense
On one occasion, Wang said, the technology "cleared" a man whom officers suspected of being someone else.
Yes, but his record still shows an arrest, right ?
There is a great possibility of mistakes, and cameras are operated by human beings with all their own prejudices."
At present, no one has accurately used a facial-recognition system to pick faces out of a crowd

Showcasing Police might at GOP convention
It's called the
Long Range Acoustic Device, developed for the military and capable of blasting warnings, orders or anything else at an ear-splitting 150 decibels.
Authorities on Thursday unveiled a mini-arsenal of devices and counterterrorism equipment they're getting ready for the convention, which opens a week from Monday.

Riot helmets with cameras -- Federal Protective Service
The signal from the cameras is sent wirelessly to the mobile and control units, then fed into the Internet in encrypted form, Libby said. The handheld devices get the image from the Internet through a wireless connection.

With nearly a quarter-million protestors expected, police have been trained to arrest crowds that become violent. Some officers will even be equipped with TV cameras in their riot helmets, part of the stream of nearly 400 video sources feeding into the main command center, staffed by 116 people from 66 separate agencies.

Robo Cops in Beta --Summer 2004
If you're in New York City when the Republican National Conventions kicks off next week, watch for police officers watching you with extra sets of megapixel peepers. The Federal Protective Service has outfitted patrol officers with helmets embedded with wireless video cameras. The images from the helmet-cams and traditional surveillance cameras mounted in federal buildings are streamed to a headquarters-on-wheels where deployment decisions can be made.

LiveWave Inc. provided the network capabilities through their FirstView product, a combination video encoder, camera controller and server that supports thousands of cameras, sensors, and users.
TheFeature earlier this year, smart firefighter helmets will provide emergency personnel with an "augmented reality" display that overlays text and images onto their view through the helmet. Meanwhile, command and control officers can help guide the rescue efforts by sharing the view of the firefighters inside a blaze.

Facing Torture
"I might get chipped only if the alternative is tortoure or prison. I am vehemently opposed to it"

Comment by this editor:
Torture is reprehensible to all human beings and it is the supreme motivational factor in getting a person to go against their will or conscience. We all hate pain, and our basic natural instinct is to avoid pain at all cost.
But can anything justify going against our conscience ? No.

"And fear not them which kill the body [ including torture ] , but are not able to kill the soul:
but rather fear Him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell"
Matthew 10:28

"And I say unto you My friends, be not afraid of them that kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do."
But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear:
fear Him which after he hath killed hath power to cast into hell; yea, I say unto you, fear Him.
and Luke 12: 4, 5

You just call out My Name"

Fear Tactics
.... "fear hath torment " I John 4:18
The System is trying to wear us down, break us down and demoralize us by constantly talking about ---and graphically depicting--- torture on the news and in the movies ( "Hostel", detention centers etc. ).
This is propaganda, and it is also a brainwashing technique.
The System knows that if they can scare you enough, your imagination alone will keep you from doing your own will, and these tactics will try to persuade you to go against your deepest convictions.

What are we to do in the face of torture ?

1. First of all, we MUST not allow our minds to think upon it, or dwell upon it NO MATTER WHAT. Each time the media focuses on torture, TURN IT OFF. We must feed our Faith and starve our doubts.

2. Next, we feed our Faith by reading the Word of God which plainly demonstrates to us God's power over the physical world. ( The Book of
Exodus for example, among thousands of examples).

3. Next, we read as many biographies ( testimonies) of overcomers ... those who endured hardships, suffering and yes, even torture and yet released the power of God in their lives to overcome even torture.

"
And they overcame him by the Blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony
and they loved not their lives unto the death " Revelation 12:11


Torture can be overcome only by the power and grace of God.
Daniel Chapter 3
Building up our own stamina by our own determination will only get us so far. We overcome by allowing God's grace to flow through us. We build up our strength by asking for His strength.

a. We can't
b. He can
c. So let Him

"I will love Thee O Lord my Strength " --Psalm 18
"The Lord is my shield and exceeding great reward" Genesis 15:1

4. We connect ( through prayer and meditation) with the most tortured Person in all of History ... Jesus Christ.
" He was marred more than any man" -- Isaiah 52:14
We look at His nailed pierced hands
Psalm 22 . We hear the mocking and scorn and blasphemy.
We see the spittle, the torn out beard
Isaiah 50: 6 , the merciless lashes upon all of His body.
We sense the utter agony He went through, even though He was righteous in all ways....never deserving any of the torture He received. He drank the cup to the dregs. He set His face as flint.

When we behold Jesus in all of this ignominy, we see the tremendous love He has for us.
When we are moved by His love to love Him back with all of our heart, then it is that
perfect LOVE which casts out fear. 1 John 4: 18

Torture -- no matter the time element involved ---is always temporary.
Loving God, and enjoying perfect bliss for all eternity, is FOREVER and ever.

I'll take eternity any day , NO MATTER WHAT !!!

"When I look at those policemen, I am unable to understand:
Why did not even one of them stop in the name of ethics and ask himself if the order he received was moral or just?
They simply acted as robots, at best, but in many cases as genuine sadists."
