Tasers are waaaaay more effective. =) And since a new taser-baton thing is coming out soon for close up self-defense, this really isn't very important.

i think they alread make flashlight that can incapacitate people, and the cops are already useing them, you know, metal, extremely heavy, able to bash someones skull in, i think you get the picture. i think any old flashlight could easily do that.

So... "When suspects turn away or reel, cops or border-security agents can nab and handcuff them."

"The person being targeted could easily look away, or he or she might be wearing heavily tinted glasses."

Isn't this kind of contradictory?

and lol @ "on a side note, i wonder if they could make a huge bomb that could do that (i guess like a flashbang grenade, only uber sized)"

It's been done.

It's like the photoseizure effect from that episode of Pokemon before it came to the U.S.

^^Obviously a side effect they haven't considered. It was in the comments in there as well. Another comment in there worth mentioning was this one:

"As everyone is probably already aware, any technology is neutral but has the capacity for good and evil purposes. I wonder how long it will take before governments start using these non-lethal technologies to control it's own citizenry."

Which, given the US government's attitude, I wouldn't be surprised if it actually happened.

"and the light pulses, which quickly change both in color and duration, also cause what Lieberman calls psychophysical effects."
I can see where this is going to be a problem rather quickly.

Bobbies don't carry guns, so let them test it first. If it proves to be a meaningful deterent, then I could see it replacing their batons; otherwise, I prefer the tried and true "Lock & Load".

all fine and dandy...until one malfunctions, blinds the criminal, and the police force gets sued out the wazoo. Repeat as many times as needed until banning.

on a side note, i wonder if they could make a huge bomb that could do that (i guess like a flashbang grenade, only uber sized)

"Wow that guy's gonna fire, let's pull out the flashlights!"

I sense awkward situations coming up for the police.

"The LED flashlight comes with a few caveats. The person being targeted could easily look away."

Well, maybe they won't think of doing that.
