Good post; BTW, I'm glad you, at least, got the non- versus less-lethal nomenclature figured out. Your ARES peers for weeks have been using the phrase "nonlethal" when, IMHO, "less lethal" is more appropriate. While the acoustic weapon used on David Axe probably falls under the non-lethal category, I'd think any device using electricity is best classified as less lethal.

well, for that matter, Mike, less-lethal doesn't make a whole lot of sense, technically speaking. lethal is a binary adjective. something's either lethal or it's not. guess we could go with 'potentially lethal' or 'not necessarily lethal'...
