The Avant-Garde of Crowd Control

Posted by on June 27 at 12:47 PM

From Adbusters:

The Israeli army has put an unusual new weapon into service, one that produces an unbearable sound that causes acute dizziness and nausea in its victims. Dubbed “The Scream,” the device is being lauded as a welcome, non-lethal addition to the IDF’s arsenal of means to control and suppress violent protest.

All that money for R&D and they could’ve just blasted old Throbbing Gristle or Merzbow albums for the same effect.
