Also, I'm tired of people in my neighborhood picking on me and speeding around my house and down my street. The local police won't help me with these issues... so, I figure I may have to "fight fire with fire".. you know?
Using something like a laser for retaliation against folks in your neighborhood for harassment is going to get you in serious legal trouble. Also it'll just bring you more trouble from whoever is bothering you. Your 'fire with fire' logic is assbackwards unless people are driving by shining lasers at you - to which even then, fighting back like this wont solve a thing.
If I could find one powerful enough to pop a tire... I could increase my odds of not getting caught. I'm just getting sick and tired of getting picked on and harassed by my neighbors... and since the police won't help or do anything to put it to a stop.. well, I guess I have to take matters into my own hands.
Again, the thought of using a laser to pop a car tire is idiotic. Even if a car was parked instead of 'driving by' - it'd take a military grade powered laser to accomplish something like this. You'd never get away with this because (1) it takes too long and (2) that terrible smell of burnt rubber.
I can use that knowledge to figure out about how much power it would take to pop a tire, melt the paint on their car, and possibly melt and plastic pieces on their car.. maybe that would slow them down eh? Best part about it is, is with laser.. I can simply stay "incognito" while executing my plan.
From what you're asking about here it doesn't sound like that at all. Taking matters into your own hands rarely yields the solution you're looking for, especially when 'the lame police' won't assist your problem. Harassment isn't illegal, retaliation & creating an offensive like this is.
This forum is about learning, building and experimenting with lasers in a safe and legal manner. I don't think anybody here is going to help you - with the exception of trying to help change your mind.
