FOX's Peter Doocy Tests Out the Military’s New Crowd Controlling Heat Wave Weapon

'You're not gonna see it, you're not gonna hear it, you're not gonna smell it: You're gonna feel it'...

The Department of Defense revealed its Active Denial System, a nonlethal weapon used to disperse crowds, secure perimeters, and even protect ships against pirates. Fox News’ Peter Doocy tested out the new tool, describing what it felt like firsthand on Fox and Friends.

The device is neither radioactive nor is it a laser beam. The waves can fire up to 1,000 meters away and are designed to target the subject in the line of sight, getting the part of their body it touches really hot so that they move. Peter reported that you can’t see it, hear it or smell it. One official described it as a method that allows them to “Shoot first and ask questions later. Normally you can’t do that.”

Peter tried it out, saying it felt like 1,000 degrees when he was hit with the heat ray. “I’ve never been inside a tub that somebody dropped a hairdryer in, but I would imagine that’s what it feels like,” he said. After about 1.5 seconds, 1/64 of an inch of his skin was 130 degrees, but the DOD says there aren’t any lingering effects. Researcher Stephanie Miller explained, “There’s no cancer risk, there’s no risk to a fetus or reproductive capability. It’s just heat.”

Interesting, I sure would not want to get hit with this. But for the terrorists, pirates like he says or ...... that is ok.

I believe if this had been deployed, the Regime would have used it on TEA Party folks that gathered in DC.

Sounds great. The Libs will be all over this, no doubt.

I predict that, the current,Rules of Engagement, according to the "reigning CIC", will be amended to prevent this from being used.

Would love to see this used against any of these groups choosing to destroy property, ala Occupiers.

Scary. The ACLU would sue to prevent it being used against anyone except White taxpaying males. It is barely within range of a .30 cal rifle so it would be difficult to take out. ADS-Area Denial Weapon. Add individual in that nomenclature and we could call it the AIDS weapon. I don't know why the military would need this. It is not a combat related weapon. It is a policing weapon. Lots to worry about with this thing.

With a range of about one mile, this thing could be used against civilians without their knowledge. If this thing is controlled by the military and used on protestors, then we would have military troops firing upon American citizens. Posse Comitatus?

Thank you everyone so much. I agree with all of your input about this.
