If any of you were watching the Discovery Channel program called "Shoot
NOT to Kill" last night, you'd notice a device I had developed back in
the late 80's is now being bandied about as a law enforcement tool. They
discussed the use of short range contact and focussed beam EMP weapons
to easily stop automobiles. I had built a device exactly like they
discussed and demonstrated back in '89 and used it successfully against
police trying to stop me for speeding. It shot a focussed EMP pulse in a
cone behind my vehicle to a range of about 150 feet that would toast the
engine control chips of a pursuing vehicle....

Of course, no mention was made of the origin of this device, and the
sort of application that ne'er-do-wells like myself could make of this
