Found this; this type of attention is not good for our hobby


CRIMINALS HARASS CUSTOMS AND BORDER PROTECTION HELICOPTERS WITH LASERS

‘That laser beam, if it hits you in the eyeball, that could cause permanent damage. That could cause blindness.’
Tiffany Huertas | ValleyCentral.com - MAY 2, 2017 3 Comments
Criminals Harass Customs and Border Protection Helicopters with Lasers
911
The cat-and-mouse game between Border Patrol agents and people attempting to sneak across the Rio Grande changes dramatically when air support arrives.
CBS 4 News reporter Tiffany Huertas accompanied pilots with the U.S. Customs Protection Air and Marine Operations division, who offered her a firsthand look at how they work with Border Patrol agents on the ground.
Several people had just climbed over the border fence west of the Hidalgo-Reynosa International Bridge when the helicopter arrived. Equipped with night-vision technology, the helicopter crew quickly told Border Patrol agents exactly where the people were hiding.
“That big tree down there by the light cart. OK, you got a couple in that big tree,” said Air Enforcement Agent Shannon Lipps, who previously worked as a Border Patrol agent on the ground. “The rest are just laid up in the grass by the levee.”
Then a green light started illuminating the cockpit.
“Ah! This knucklehead from Mexico is lasing us,” Lipps said.
The helicopter crew could see someone in Mexico pointing a laser at them, but couldn’t do anything about it.
“We’ll pass that information on to sector. Sector will call their counterparts in the government of Mexico. Whether they make contact with these subject or not, we don’t know,” Lipps said.

Ugh, I cringe when I see and/or hear about this stuff, nothing will take down our hobby faster than idiots using handheld lasers to do stupid, irresponsible, dangerous acts such as this. Good find Bob!

They are criminals operating on the southern side of the border. No legislation implemented by this country will stop those criminals. I wouldn't worry.

Yea just sucks when the media writes this stuff for people in the US. There is a lot more lasers flying around outside the US that's for sure.

Even so Steve, seeing these stories will put certain unwanted ideas into our citizens heads. Such as, "These lasers are very dangerous in the wrong hands, we need to make them more illegal, especially because there is no amendment protecting such devices, as there is for firearms."

And with the media making money off of the bad, scary, and terrorizing, one will only see, hear, and/or read about the bad effects of idiots with handhelds, unfortunately, no matter what country they may have been in. There are millions of responsible Mexicans below the boarder, and there are a few bad apples, exactly like the U.S., and other counties. I'm just saying these bad apples are going to spoil the bunch, so to speak.

Thanks Ricker, was pretty depressing when I read it, all that unwanted attention. All they would need is an excuse. Not good!

Our federal government is very aware of laser incidents here (and abroad). The link concerns incidents in this country. The Laser Pointer Safety site has articles from abroad. There was a slight drop in laser incidents as you'll see.
