Saakashvili regime in Georgia using sonic blasters on civilians?

Remember those sonic blasters I blogged about here on BoingBoing (and reported on NPR) a while back? Noah Shachtman at Wired reports that the Saakashvili regime in Georgia is using them to crush protestors.

This English-language footage from Russia Today shows riot police rolling through the streets of Tblisi in pickup trucks, small dishes in hand.  A high frequency pulse follows.  "Georgian police used an acoustic gun — it's a non-lethal weapon that disorients people for a period of time," says one "special weapons expert."
