NYPD Using LRAD On Protesters

Post by MikeQuell » December 21st, 2014, 9:27 pm

Has anyone ever been in the company of one of these before? Eeeshh. What's the liability against hearing damage against one of these? Does it push enough volume to cause hearing loss? Where's OSHA!? :)

Here's the tech company that produces these types of devices: http://www.lradx.com/site/content/view/15/110/

Wow, I'm seeing between 130-153dB at one meter on their spec sheets. That's brutal. I hope those cops are wearing earplugs. And I hope the other folks are staying well clear.
