FBI investigating laser beam directed into airplane cockpit
I think it's funny that the page this article appears on has an "ads by google" box featuring the following:

This sounds like BS, though I'm not quite sure who's dishing it out...

Man was "playing" with laser...

They only went after someone because the laser was aimed at a police helocopter.  They will not put as much effort to find someone to frame for the attacks(?) on civilian aircraft.

Interfering with a flight crew is a crime whether the flight is governmental, commercial, or private. They have
the law to pursue the SOBs if they want to. That it isn't a high priority says a lot.

BTW, in the PRC, painting someone with a laser designator is considered assault. No aircraft need be involved.

ABC news ran a short item on this tonight.  Two points that were of interest were the fact that somebody had the capability of tracking a plane at a pretty high elevation moving at several hundred miles per hour,  at least enough to make this laser penetrate the cockpit for "several seconds".  The other was that these incidents happened at a number of different locations around the country.

Sounds like *something* is up,  fershure...
Yeah, sounds to me like what is "up" is that they are priming the sheeple for yet another equipment ban. A ban that, like all others, will not affect cops and other criminals; the only effect being to put us incrementally more disadvantaged before them.

That could be,  but what would be the point of it?  Who stands to gain what,  if such devices aren't around any more?  And how long would THAT take?  There sure are a heck of a lot of them out there,  and no particularly easy way to track them down,  that I can see...
