Oh, come on.. tries to blind policeman..

I've seen footage of policemen actually on fire from molotovs down in greece - closing your eyes is sufficient protection from most lasers at the distances displayed. Perhaps the lasers are used to intimidate, but not as a blinding weapon in this story!

Amazing beam shots. Nice collimated beam. Entertaining picture. Tragic story.

I agree with you that it is a nice beamshot. But don't forget what a criminal that cop became. None of the greek kids will forget Alex. As for the riots... They are the worst demonstration Greece has had since 1975.

Um, why else would one shine a high powered laser into someone's face, just for a laugh? That's like saying, "They only through a cinder block at the cops. All the cops had to do was take a half step to the side to avoid being crushed. Obviously they were not intending to harm the officers."

So amazing in fact, that i am looking for ways to start riots of similar size here in holland, as to replicate this fantastic result

If it all works out, i'll even make them in red and blue too. Anyone interested in sponsoring this endeavour can send me their teargas, molotov cocktails and unexploded ordinance - one has to start with something, right?

It was probably just a weak 5mw that some kids were using to annoy the police. With all of the smoke from the riot and a long exposure you can easily get beams looking like that. Overall I would be more worried about the firebombs.

Default Re: Greek rioters use lasers against police

last night on some forum, a link got posted to a streaming video of a riot, presumably there
http://mfile.akamai.com/61609/live/r...061.asx?prop=e

it cut off right before something big happened, but there were a good couple hundred people there, and the riot police smoking them out of what looked like a small park kinda place. i just checked again and the camera is up still, pointing at some people huddled around something.
maybe they will do something again tonight lol

That's just from camera shake and over-exposure.

Default Re: Greek rioters use lasers against police

It's not camera shake - look how clear the houses on the background are. Its the cop thats moving and perhaps a bit out of focus.

But the beam should probably be pretty fat, at 100 metres distance or so, a ~10 cm dot is not uncommon for simple green pointers.

Also, its a really long exposure - look how bright everything is lit up by what appears to be no more than a low powered sodium streetlight. I'd say this shot was made so the beam appear as bright as possible, likely much much more bright than to the eye in that situation.
