Completely Banned for the Greater Good

Yep I do, and that's what makes the decision to own and "use" one somewhat of a dilemma. I equate this with the idea of trying to create a little peace and quiet without trying to get someone hurt. Hmmmmm.The problem with those are that they don't discriminate what 800mhz freq's they jam... With more and more PS Agencies using 800mhz I think you can understand the problem.

Maybe, but I tend to think most cops (at least those I know well) are not even aware of this technology. If they were then they might worry more. I'm not saying that cops are stupid mind you, but maybe a little less tech savvy than you or I.I always chuckle when cops complain about scanners, but never mention these.
If I was a bank robber I know I'd rather be able to cut communications of the Officer behind/chasing me, than hear what he's saying. (But I'm sure Encryption stops this too lol)
We actually had a gas station in the area that was jamming our 800 mhz portables and cell phones. They thought it was funny until the chief called them about it. It was not funny.
I’m pretty sure I’ll never actually go out and buy one, but I gotta admit, there is one situation when I really wish I had one. When parents keep their nose buried in the device and ignore their kids.
yeah,,restaurants are great too..you can observe a family of 5 not say a word to eachother...
faces in a device of 1 form or another....
my wife n I will do voice overs,,,or narrations..cracks the kids up...
So what's the current status of these alleged bank robbers?I agree, scanners are the least of the problem. There was a bank robbery in my area and the robbers placed a dozen or so jammers around the area of a bank. No cell, GPS, or 800mhz radio traffic within a block or two....
And there's the thought process that leads to prison overcrowding and early release of violent offenders.This federal offense should rate a twenty year sentence.
Then, when you miss that emergency call, let the lawsuits begin...And there's the thought process that leads to prison overcrowding and early release of violent offenders.
Like I said on the other thread, these devices should be legal. Fine tune them to work only on assigned cell frequencies and for limited range so a restaurant or store could disable cell phones within their own property.
