this is a random thought but i’m in general kinda scared for the future of g*vernment surveillance/p*lice violence so just a cyberpunk tip for anyone reading: chile rioters would use high powered lasers (that you can easily get on ebay legally) to burn things/blind c*ps
they’re used because in chile things were particularly bad and cops would permanently blind protesters w rubber bullets, etc. it was *literally* an eye for an eye, LAST RESORT situation and it’s DEFINITELY not necessary today but i just think it’s a good easily attainable
alternative to traditional weapons if a day ever comes where the american public ever finds itself in a situation where they’re defenseless and things really are that dire. i sincerely doubt and hope that it’ll ever happen, but i think it’s important to keep note of things like
this, just in the back of ur mind, just in case. i’m mostly making this thread bc i want to make sure i remember this myself, you never know where the future leads, fellow protesters! so just remember. lasers!
a good thread on chile’s laser riots + more info abt lasers are this reddit thread w video on laser riots (the comments are super helpful/educational especially regarding legality of use in america!)... https://www.reddit.com/r/PublicFreakout/comments/dvqucl/the_use_of_lasers_to_blind_the_police_in_chiles/
and this styropyro video where he actually gets one of the lasers and explains it all, including using it safely + getting one legally.
