"What I love is one of the comments saying that if it's legal to own a laser, it shouldn't be illegal to shine it at aircraft."

The two FAQs at LPS.com are a must read for those who claim ignorance is an excuse to break a big time felony law or worse--

US: 21 months for Calif. man "who can't help himself from doing stupid things"
Jan 27 2014 -- Filed in: Jail/Prison
Charles Conrad Mahaffey, 23
Clovis, California, US

On January 27 2014, Mahaffey was sentenced to 21 months in prison for aiming a “powerful red laser” at a Fresno County Sheriff’s Office helicopter. The pilot was distracted by the light and broke off the mission. In November 2013 Mahaffey pleaded guilty, saying he knew it was a crime to point a laser at an aircraft but said he “just can’t help himself from doing stupid things.”


That was a pretty funny excuse IMO. No pics.

Jack Waistle, 21
Middlesbrough, UK

On April 10 2013, Waistle was given a six-month suspended sentence and 150 hours of unpaid work, for aiming a laser pen at a Cleveland Police helicopter. Leaving the courtroom, Waistle put two fingers up (photo above) which the Daily Star wrote was “defiant”.



You kidding me? What kind of guy is he?

Also What was that symbol? Peace? :wtf:

MOST caught(usa) are teen white males or early 20s- at the site ATM there is ONLY one female --she got TWO YEARS---


read here--

US: Two years for 24-year-old woman
May 12 2014 -- Filed in: Jail/Prison | Probation
Jennifer Lorraine Coleman, 24
Clovis, California, US

In the summer of 2012,(Jennifer) Coleman and her then-boyfriend, Sergio Patrick Rodriguez, 26, were arrested for repeatedly aiming a green laser at a Fresno Police Department helicopter. It had been called out to investigate an earlier illumination of a children’s hospital medical helicopter.

On May 12 2014, Coleman was sentenced to two years in prison, to be followed by three years of supervised release, for aiming a laser pointer at a law enforcement aircraft. Rodriguez had earlier been sentenced to 14 years in prison: eight for the laser incident and an additional six due to his prior criminal record.

so her BF got the 'book' due to his prior bad acts--

BUT the fact that she got 2 years SHOULD send a message to all--

*********************************
go to laserpointersafety.com

see the FAQs like this one:


QUOTE)



Any deliberate targeting of an aircraft is taken very seriously by pilots and authorities. They don't have power meters. All they know is that someone aimed a laser at them -- and it could even be a laser sight on a gun. Therefore, if found, you will almost certainly be arrested.

Also, some new national and local laws have been introduced to prohibit aiming lasers at or near an aircraft. These laws do not make any exception for the power of the laser.


Doesn't the beam of a laser pointer aimed outside seem to end?


If you aim a laser pointer into a clear nighttime sky, it can appear that the beam ends after a certain point.


This is a visual effect similar to an optical illusion. (The illusion is explained on this page.) Unfortunately, people have aimed at aircraft, mistakenly thinking the beam only goes a short distance and then (somehow) stops. In Feb. 2011, a 14-year-old boy was arrested for illuminating an aircraft on approach to Los Angeles International Airport. He told police that he thought the beam “would not go up to the height of the aircraft.”

This is a dangerous misconception. The laser's light does not suddenly stop in mid-air. It may pass into clearer air, which does not scatter much light back to the viewer. But the light definitely continues on.

Instead of hundreds of feet, the laser can be a distraction at a distance of many miles. This is yet another reason why you should NEVER aim a laser at or near an aircraft: If you can see the aircraft or its lights, then it can certainly see your laser -- and be visually distracted or flashblinded by it.


END QUOTE)

there you go- dont expect mercy- when you got caught and dont forget there is a cash reward for turning you in-- and as Dave notes- follow the beam to find the fool easily-

also NOW that HomeLand Security is involved - we all have yet another govt agency going after laserisits-

the list is too long


local police
state police
state level investagators
FDA
FAA
FBI
CIA
HLS
and prolly more..

@Hak
You asked what the sign the idiot threw up with his two fingers was, and I can answer that.

Apparently the guy is English, and that sign is the equivalent of flipping someone the bird in the US. It originated back in the days when the newly fielded British Longbowmen were the most badass unit on the battlefield. It was customary, when longbowmen were captured, to cut off the first two fingers of their string-hand so they would not be able to shoot the longbow ever again.
The sign was used to show an enemy "Look, I still have my string-fingers...I can still pluck you." It was a defiant or taunting sign (The Daily Star was right).

Fast forward 400-500 years to WWII...and it becomes the British "V for victory". (Personally, though, I think old Churchill got it going as a defiant sign toward the Axis forces, Hitler in particular)

Fast forward another decade or so and you get the Peace sign of the '60's, and the current flip o' the bird "#^ck you".

Today, in many parts of the UK it means "up yours".

For some immature teen, this will give them more ideas, for the responsible heightened awareness.

Yeah, this sounds like the kind of thing a male teenager would do. It is that part of male life when one seems to do stupid things for the "fun" of it. It is a shame that kids like these will probably be the cause of laws that will eventually make our hobby illegal. All I can do is shake my head in disbelief.

The punishment for inappropriate use of a laser should be the cutting off of the penis. See if they will shine it at aircraft then :tsk:

And for women the permanent seal of their cha chas
