Laser strikes against airplanes now an "epidemic," says FBI (VIDEO FROM HELICOPTER)
You may not be the kind of person who gets his kicks by standing at the end of a runway and firing a small laser into the cockpit of jets during their takeoffs and landings—but plenty of other people are. In 2005, the FBI only heard about 283 such incidents; this year, it expects to record 3,700.

In an official blog post about the topic, the FBI quotes federal air marshal George Johnson saying that the laser attacks have reached an "epidemic level." Things have gotten so bad that the FBI has created a special group to address the issue, one with the unwieldy name "Laser Strike Working Group National Initiative" (which could use a laser strike of its own).

It's not an epidemic at all, but it will be when some smart ass figures out that lasers are a transport medium, kinda like an air-duct and when they start experimenting and introducing "other" stuff into that medium, then lasers become exponentially more powerful and dangerous, so they need to curb and diminish their usage before someone figures out the secret and then before you know it, we're gonna have some 6th grader called Dexter ruling the skies for passing grades!
