I live a little less then two miles from where this current round of riots are happening in Brooklyn Center. No problem, but this damn helicopter keeps stopping and staging right above my house. It sits there for ten minutes then circles around the hot spots and then right back over my house. Its now nice out so I've got my windows open and its like a freaking mosquito in my ear. Well I snapped and grabbed my Dewalt LED spotlight and lit them up. It seems to have worked because they left for a half hour, which I assume they went to refuel, and now they're staging about two miles away in the other direction. So I guess the point is if you want to repel a helicopter or need any impromptu stage lighting grab yourself one of these. Its pretty sweet. Now the helicopter is a local media chopper, not a police chopper. I know that Mpls and St Paul PD's do not own their own helicopters, and I could see the local CBS logo on the side. I wasn't interfering with anything important.
