Years ago, depending on whose streets you mean.
November, right after the commies steal the elections.

That's what this stuff will do if you use it wrong.
There was a story here on FR several months back that mentioned the use of something like this in San Diego (IIRC). I’ll see if I can find it.
maybe they will test it on code pink.

Very nice, especially considering that I live about a mile from it.
I can remember a couple of times when the sheriff cars drove by telling us to lock our doors after some of America’s finest had escaped.
I’ve actually been inside the place (as a visitor), it was a working ranch/farm with cattle at one time. They changed the name from Honor Rancho to Detention Center. I guess because it was an honor to stay there?

The most surprising thing I saw while driving around was a sign pointing toward the dog grooming area. I’m not sure if they still use those facilities.
Here, this should help with that
I think the reporter got it wrong, sounds like the active area denial system, a microwave based system.
sounds like a Dalek to me... where’s the Doctor?
but the risk of cancer is low, right?!
Any guess how soon inmates will receive cakes with mirrors in them?
