unchellmatt: I'm reading up on it right now (don't know much about x-ray tube power requirements, I admit, and this IS out of my league), but from what I'm reading it would seem you'd need a rather sizable amount of power to pull off being able to expose people outside of, say, 3 meter radius. And even then, a simple pickup truck wouldn't be able to carry all the hardware. A big U-Haul maybe? But then the generators needed....

just use batteries and a big magnet to erase the hard drive with the evidence on it, Jesse.

I really want to see the X-ray contraption these KKK rednecks were putting together.

Hey, did you know that if you rip sticky tape, it makes X-rays? It's true! And what do rednecks like to use to build stuff? That's right, duct tape!

I am envisioning some kind of Rube Goldberg device stuffed into a van, where the "remote initiator" is one of these guys down the street, blowing on a duck call. The duck call wakes up a sleeping duck in the van, who is in a giant hamster wheel. The duck starts waddling to find the lady duck he just heard, rotating the wheel, which turns a shaft, which unspools a bunch of rolls of duct tape, thus creating a lethal burst of Kenyan-socialist-frying X-rays. Brilliant!!!

Another case on non-terrorism, in which the non-terrorists will likely be convicted of terrorism and spend the rest of their lives in prison. According to this account, the FBI provided equipment that the guys with equipment that the weren't able to get, and without which the "death ray" could not be built (IOW, there was no threat and zero chance of a terrorist attack [altho, assassinating a politician isn't really terrorism] without the FBI's involvement). So, why aren't the FBI agents facing life in prison? Put me on the jury of these guys' trial and my vote is "not guilty."

Death ray, not a freeze ray, because that's all 'Johnny Snow'...

You know nothing about death rays, Jon Snow.

Freeze rays? Yes, because Winter is coming.

Death rays are for posers -- poetic justice would be to kill him using a drone...

When death rays are outlawed only outlaws will have death rays.
