A bunch of teen thugs thought it would be fun to point a laser at a police helicopter. They would soon find out, when the cops in the chopper actually chased them down, caught them, and prosecuted them, that the joke was not taken as funny.
People have no clue how dangerous lasers can be. This author served time in the Army, and I personally knew several soldiers who had lasers pointed in their eyes in Iraq, and it caused SERIOUS damage. One of them spent nearly a year in a Wounded Warrior’s battalion (warriors in transition battalion) and was eventually medically discharged due to a permanent loss of vision in one eye.
Lasers are not toys, as these young thugs found out the hard way.
