New non-lethal weapon lets troops microwave hostile crowds

There is something about a weapon such as this that is unsettling. Would anyone who isn't either wealthy or a politician want one of these in their neighborhood?

There is the occasion I'm sure that something like this would save lives, though angry crowds usually gather because they are... angry, and the are usually angry about something. In fact we would quite likely be british subjects if anything like this were possible 250 years ago. Goodbye to popular rebellion. But hey, we got 'em, so I have to admit that it makes me cackle with glee when I imagine what this thing could do if you cranked it up a bit. I assume it would be quite lethal, and even more intense than the movies.
