  • The U.S. Navy now has a fully operational laser gun.
  • National homeless problems and possible solutions.
  • “Michael Brown’s name is being invoked all across the country, and it’s sure to cause more problems for law enforcement officers trying to do their job.

    A shopper detained on Black Friday at a Pennsylvania Walmart became unreasonable when asked to prove that he had paid for his merchandise and refused to show his ID, claiming the officer knew who he was.
    Watch the disgusting incident unfold here and see if you agree that the man was doing little more than exploiting the death of Michael Brown to save his own hide:

    “The technology’s big advantage is its operational efficiency, as firing one shot costs just around $1, the Navy has repeatedly stressed. But lasers have their own peculiarities, with efficacy depending on weather conditions, the presence of dust and vapors in the air, and other factors. The range of the LaWS, which is limited by those factors, remains classified.

    Despite those hypothetical limitations, the Navy announced that sailors working with the system reported that ‘the weapon performed flawlessly, including in adverse weather conditions of high winds, heat and humidity.'”

    “A survey of the homeless population shows that 51 percent of homeless adults in the city are physically disabled, 26 percent are severely mentally ill and 22 percent are victims of domestic violence. Almost a quarter of the homeless in the city report that they are employed, which is higher than the 18 percent national average.

    The city expects the number of homeless adults to remain steady this year.

    About 9 percent of homeless adults in the city are veterans — who have been a target of state and city programs designed to get them into permanent housing.

    Veterans who have served at least 181 days on active duty may be eligible for a one-time payment from the Minnesota Assistance Council for Veterans that can help them with transportation, housing or other costs. The typical cost for that program is $500 to $700, although it can be higher if the veteran needs to find new housing.”
