It’s being widely reported that the NYPD is testing technology which is being sold in as a way to reduce the record-setting amount of stop and frisks conducted by officers, and give them the option of doing a “search” from a distance using terahertz waves, just like the pornoscanners in the airports. As thoughtful as is of the police department to suddenly “care” about violating people’s rights, some are worried that it could have dangerous implications, literally, by tearing apart DNA.

Now, had the conspiracy amplifiers at InfoWars solely reported this, I would have believed it about as much as I do passages in Behold a Pale Horse, but since they linked to an article written by Technology Review, a well respected website operated by MIT, which unlike the latter, doesn’t traffic in tales of bloodline-concealing Merovingians kings and earthquake starting HAARP transmitters, it probably makes sense to pay attention when they say stuff like this:

“[A]lthough the forces generated are tiny, resonant effects allow THz waves to unzip double-stranded DNA, creating bubbles in the double strand that could significantly interfere with processes such as gene expression and DNA replication. That’s a jaw dropping conclusion.”

If that’s not frightening enough, keep in mind that the Department of Defense is also developing high tech instruments except theirs will be used to scan the enemy combatants, not American citizens.
