Not-quite-manportable stun gun for crowds

Out next year:

Only a 3 meter range and tabletop sized for the early versions (right, who's carrying that then? Will it run on 349 batteries? How many will I need to charge?! :).

The usual groups seem worried about innocents getting 'hurt' but it's got to be better than getting hit by a load of 7.62 rounds. Similarly some concerns over their use for torture, but I think recent news shows you can be very unpleasant without needing anything so sophisticated.

Anyway I think this looks like good news once the 'real thing' has been developed; you can clobber everybody and then sort through the lot to find the Bad Guys in your own time.

What happened to armoured cars with Water canons on the top? never heard of anyone getting killed by a 40 tone water pistol?

If you ran over the feckers with it, that would work. Certainly do 'em a damage!
