The new weapon — which has been in development for about a decade by some reports — is called a Vehicle-Mounted Active Denial system, which “fires directed energy at human targets,” according to MARINE TIMES. “Directed energy” is the military euphemism for a high-powered laser or a beam of high-frequency microwaves.

An earlier MARINE TIMES article, titled “The People Zapper,” explains how the weapon works:

“[It] causes the moisture in a person’s skin to heat up rapidly, creating a burning sensation similar to a hot light bulb pressed against one’s flesh. When used as directed — that is, briefly — the weapon causes no long-term problems…. The amount of time the weapon must be trained on an individual to cause permanent damage or death is classified.”

IT'S TIME TO TALK ABOUT MEDIA BIAS

We believe that journalism needs to stand for something right now. That the press is the enemy of secrecy and corruption. That reporting without a sense of right and wrong only helps liars and propagandists succeed. And that we're in this fight for the long haul.

So we're hoping to raise $30,000 in new monthly donations this fall. Read our argument for journalism that is fair and accurate and stands for something—and join us with a tax-deductible monthly donation (or make a one-time gift) if you agree.
