Take that, peaceful protesters!

cops do love donuts

can it shoot both at once? Maybe one as an arrow that goes through the donut or maybe a flying cock breeding out a worn out anus.

"It doesn't look enough like a penis. Is there any way we could make it look more like a penis? And can it be bigger? And can it come with a special harness that fastens around the waist? And can you make it fire when the wearer makes a sharp pelvic thrust? You know, so our cops can have their hands free to use their guns? Did I say use their guns? I meant handcuffs."

This is a great idea and yet it is the worst idea.

I TALK LIKE THIS BECAUSE OF MY ADENOIDS AND BECAUSE I HAVE SOUND PROTECTIVE EAR THINGS ON, YOU KNOW THE KIND THAT FLIGHT CREWS USE. I ALSO HAVE A STUFFY NOSE ON TOP OF MY ADENOIDS AND I HAVE A SEVERELY BLUNTED AFFECT FROM TOO MANY PROBLEMS TO MENTION AND I CAN'T HEAR MY VOICE AND I NEED TO BLOW MY NOSE AND THE MICROPHONE IS PEAKING A BIT BECAUSE I DON'T KNOW WHAT I'M DOING AND I'M SLIGHTLY DEAF AND I'M ALL KINDS OF DEAD INSIDE AND THIS IS HOW I TALK.

Expecting the narrator to end with "I must say!"
Yeah, let's give cops a weapon that can't be traced back to any one of them.

Oh, come on you big babies. It's just a little tear gas.
Yes, that's exactly the problem. The rings expand as they progress through space, diluting the projected chemical weapon. So it ends up being "just a little" tear gas. All you accomplish is giving everyone at the demo that "revolutionary" aroma for the afterparty. If you're close enough that this isn't a problem, you're close enough to just spray it from a can.
And that's a problem why? If you're a protester, you get off easy. If you're a cop, you just shoot 'em a few times. And if you're a manufacturer, you get to sell more parts to the state bureaucracy handling your contract, because your design is obviously inefficient and wasteful. It's win-win-win technology! I only wish that all police state tech was this ingenious.
I was teargassed at point blank range in the Madison Wisconsin riots, and honestly it doesn't feel much different from the ghost pepper salsa I made this morning from ghost peppers in my garden.
Yeah, particularly in an open, outdoors environment, tear gas isn't all THAT bad! It also causes no lasting damage - unlike, say, a bullet from a policeman's sidearm.

Madison is a bastion of liberalry; perhaps they used organic pepper spray on you?
Binro, read the link you provided, The reporter admits (with great reluctance) that serious injuries are exceedingly rare; indeed, the only significant injuries actually cited in that article were those caused _by metal canisters_ (which would obviously be a non-issue with a canisterless delivery system such as the vortex gun), one case wherein a small van of prisoners were asphyxiated through the excessive use of tear gas (of course using massive amounts of tear-gas in a cramped, enclosed area is going to be dangerous), and a single asthmatic guy dying from an asthma attack, which may or may not have been precipitated by an encounter with tear-gas. The miscarriages are irrelevant because fetuses aren't living people.
Seriously, tear-gas is horrible shit and getting a face full of it is the worst feeling in the world; like drowning in a vat of vomit and broken glass. But it also lasts only about a minute, and after that you're fine!
Name me one thing the cops are packing that you'd rather get shot and/or hit with, because I can't think of anything.
