A recent article in the Mohave Valley Daily News revealed that DHS is using grant money to equip Arizona police departments with military-grade sound cannons or Long Range Acoustic Devices (LRAD).
The mass media has known about DHS’s plan to equip police departments with LRADs for more than a decade but has remained largely silent.
A Washington Times article from 2009, titled “DHS helps local police buy military-style sonic devices” warned everyone that military-grade sound cannons are being used against Americans.
“With the help of Homeland Security grants, police departments nationwide looking to subdue unruly crowds and political protesters are purchasing a high-tech device originally used by the military to repel battlefield insurgents and Somali pirates with piercing noise capable of damaging hearing.” (Click here & here to learn how the NYPD has been using LRADs since 2004.)
An article in MuckRock warns that police departments across the country are purchasing different types of LRADs to be used against Americans. In fact, LRAD sells seventeen different types of sound cannons to law enforcement alone!
Hundreds of police departments have purchased sound cannons
LRAD boasts that 400 law enforcement agencies from across the country have purchased their sound cannons.
Unfortunately, DHS is not content with just equipping police departments with sound cannons.
According to LRADs “Applications” section numerous DHS run agencies and the Port of Corpus Cristi, Texas have acquired LRADs.

LRADs can cause physical harm to everyone
LRAD mentions over and over again that their sound cannons are safe and not a weapon.
