    Default Someone getting arrested for aiming green laser at police helicopter

    Found this video on yahoo and thought it was interesting

    Shows a police helicopter getting hit with a green laser and the helicopter telling police on the ground where the person is.

    ya those are obviously two different helicopters/videos... pretty sure police helicopters dont have machine guns on them

    also whatever dept that yahoo video was from was using a motorola analog voted radio system with astro-tac comparators... it has a very unique little "click" when a radio user-unkeys from the voter relay opening

    Yep!!

    Note to the YouTube poster:
    Footage was from an AH-64 Apache helicopter, not an AC130 gunship.
    Still, the point was made....
