Laser Attack

Recommended Posts

My first summer with the Sheriffs Office the keychain lasers were real big with teenagers. This was about the time the Crimson Trace grips and other weapon mounted lasers were really catching on. Bad feeling pulling up to a domestic in an apartment complex and seeing that little red dot bouncing on your chest. After the second or third little darling had a deputy draw down on him it stopped being so funny. I kinda thought that little had died out.

This happens multiple times a day, nation wide. Friends in the industry have been effected. Some airlines now have a rule that one pilot is always 'on the gauges', head inside looking at the panel so that he can't be hit by a laser. Used to be common for kids with flashlights to try and get planes to flash their landing lights at night, so of like getting truckers to blow their air horn, but the current crop of laser hits seems a lot less innocent. It is mostly on final approach to airports and it seems deliberately malicious.

 

Not funny but hard to catch and stop.
