One more reason to avoid Barry Manilow concerts...

The Air Force Secretary want to test weapons on unruly American crowds.

The object is basically public relations. Domestic use would make it easier to avoid questions from others about possible safety considerations, said Secretary Michael Wynne.

"If we're not willing to use it here against our fellow citizens, then we should not be willing to use it in a wartime situation," said Wynne. "(Because) if I hit somebody with a nonlethal weapon and they claim that it injured them in a way that was not intended, I think that I would be vilified in the world press."

Plus if something goes wrong the lawsuits will all be in English.
